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 style for privacy. They’re produced from an individual piece of fabric that you can personalize. With hundreds of fabrics and different opacities to pick from, you’re certain to discover 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 end up with, 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 leaking through.
When you are looking for privacy plus sun protection, there’s Designer Screen Shades. These shades shield against at least 75% of the sun’s dangerous UV rays, defending your flooring, furniture and artwork.
2. Bamboo Shades
Seeking a more natural appearance? Bamboo shades are created from real grasses, reeds and woods to give warmth and dimension to your residence. And you can individualize yours with light-filtering liners to add even more privacy at nighttime.
These shades are available in three distinct styles, so you can find the ideal fit for your house. These styles include Roman, which lays flat when closed, and waterfall Roman, which folds into neat pleats when raised or shut. Then, you can select from optional banding, valances and headrails to put the final touches on the look.
3. Roman Shades
With soft fabric folds, Roman shades give the appearance of drapes with the ease of shades. That way, it’s less complicated to enjoy the sun during the day and more privacy at night, without the hassle 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 delivers a sleek look for your modern home.
When you want greater 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 comfier residence and potentially a decreased heating and cooling expense year-round. Customize yours through a collection of lavish woven and non-woven fabrics, textures and patterns, in addition to privacy-boosting opacities.
4. Honeycomb Shades
Enjoy improved energy efficiency and more privacy at nighttime with honeycomb shades. These shades create a barrier that keeps air at your windows, better managing your home’s temperature to keep you comfier. A more balanced feel means your heating and cooling systems may turn on 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 may have the impression that sheer shades won’t provide adequate privacy. But these custom window treatments are an excellent option for bedrooms, because 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 bright sunlight into a soft glow, while the vanes give superior light control and privacy.
You’ll also have a selection of cord-free and smart operating systems to make using your shades even easier.
