5 Best Shades for Privacy at Night

When you need handy window treatments, shades are a great option for just about any area in your home. In addition to providing great privacy at night, they can also boost energy efficiency and reduce harmful UV rays.

Plus, it’s a cinch to match them to your style through a complete collection of fabrics and enhancements such as motorized shades that make raising and lowering them even simple. Your local Louver Shop of Columbia design specialist will go through all the possibilities with you during your free consultation. There’s not any pressure or obligation, just access to zero-cost design advice for your new custom shades.

Here are our designers’ top selections for best shades for privacy at night.

1. Roller Shades

Roller shades are an excellent style when you want an uncomplicated option for privacy. They’re produced from an individual piece of fabric that you can personalize. With hundreds of fabrics and differing opacities to pick from, you’re likely to come across one that fits your modern home and delivers the privacy you want.

Our Designer Roller Shades are designed with style and privacy in mind. There are more than 300 fabrics to choose from in a collection of patterns, textures and colors. But whatever fabric you select, you’ll enjoy enhanced privacy and light control through an exclusive standard feature. Hunter Douglas’ patented Custom Clutch operating system keeps the shade close by the window, preventing light from getting through.

When you are looking for privacy plus sun protection, there’s Designer Screen Shades. These shades stop at least 75% of the sun’s damaging UV rays, defending your flooring, furniture and artwork.

2. Bamboo Shades

Wanting a more natural style? Bamboo shades are crafted from real grasses, reeds and woods to give warmth and dimension to your residence. And you can personalize yours with light-filtering liners to add greater privacy at nighttime.

These shades are available in three distinct styles, so you can find the best fit for your residence. These styles include Roman, which lays flat when closed, and waterfall Roman, which folds into neat pleats when raised or down. Then, you can add optional banding, valances and headrails to finish the look.

3. Roman Shades

With soft fabric folds, Roman shades deliver the appearance of drapes with the adjustability of shades. That way, it’s less complicated to enjoy the sun during the day and more privacy at night, without the bother of drawing bulky drapes.

With Vignette®, you can add a Duolite® panel to convert your window treatments into blackout shades during the day and privacy shades at night. With no dangling rear cords, Vignette offers an uncluttered look for your modern home.

When you want more energy efficiency, there’s Solera®. These honeycomb roman shades have cells that trap air for more insulation. The result is less energy loss at your windows, a cozier house and potentially a smaller heating and cooling expense year-round. Customize yours through a collection of lavish woven and non-woven fabrics, textures and patterns, plus privacy-boosting opacities.

4. Honeycomb Shades

Enjoy improved energy efficiency and more privacy at nighttime with honeycomb shades. These shades create a barrier that traps air at your windows, better managing your home’s temperature to keep you comfier. A more balanced temp means your heating and cooling systems may operate less often, helping you conserve more on your monthly bills.

These shades have just the right amount of opacity to let in sunlight during the day and deliver privacy at night. With additional features like LightLock™ and Duolite for select shades, you’ll get greater control over light diffusion, room-darkening and blackout performance.

5. Sheer Shades

You could have the impression that sheer shades won’t provide adequate privacy. But these custom window treatments are an excellent option for bedrooms, as they include all the features you like most about shades and blinds.

Our sheer shades include movable vanes that float between two fabric panels that you can choose. The panels transform blinding sunlight into a light glow, while the vanes deliver enhanced light control and privacy.

You’ll also have a selection of cord-free and smart operating systems to make using your shades even easier.
