5 Best Shades for Privacy at Night

When you are looking for versatile window treatments, shades are a great solution for just about any room in your house. On top of providing great privacy at night, they can also boost energy efficiency and reduce hazardous UV rays.

Plus, it’s simple to match them to your décor through a complete collection of fabrics and options like motorized shades that make raising and lowering them even faster. Your local Louver Shop of Birmingham design specialist will review all the possibilities with you during your free consultation. There’s not any pressure or obligation, just access to free design advice for your new custom shades.

Here are our designers’ most-liked selections for best shades for privacy at night.

1. Roller Shades

Roller shades are a fantastic style when you are seeking an uncomplicated style for privacy. They’re produced from one piece of fabric that you can personalize. With hundreds of fabrics and differing opacities to select from, you’re certain to discover one that complements your contemporary residence and provides the privacy you want.

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

When you need privacy plus sun protection, there’s Designer Screen Shades. These shades stop at least 75% of the sun’s dangerous UV rays, safeguarding your flooring, furniture and artwork.

2. Bamboo Shades

Wanting a more natural look? Bamboo shades are made from genuine grasses, reeds and woods to add warmth and dimension to your residence. And you can individualize yours with light-filtering liners to add better privacy at nighttime.

These shades can be customized in three distinctive fashions, so you can find the ideal fit for your home. These styles include Roman, which lays flat when drawn, and waterfall Roman, which folds into neat pleats when raised or drawn. Then, you can add optional banding, valances and headrails to finish the look.

3. Roman Shades

With soft fabric folds, Roman shades offer the appearance of drapes with the convenience of shades. That way, it’s easier to enjoy sunshine during the day and better privacy at night, minus the inconvenience of drawing awkward drapes.

With Vignette®, you can have a Duolite® panel to transform your window treatments into blackout shades during the day and privacy shades at night. With no exposed rear cords, Vignette offers a sleek look for your contemporary home.

When you are seeking greater energy efficiency, there’s Solera®. These honeycomb roman shades feature cells that capture air for improved insulation. The result is decreased energy loss at your windows, a more comfortable house and potentially a decreased heating and cooling cost annually. Individualize yours through a collection of luxurious woven and non-woven fabrics, textures and patterns, plus privacy-enhancing opacities.

4. Honeycomb Shades

Enjoy enhanced energy efficiency and more privacy at nighttime with honeycomb shades. These shades add a barrier that keeps air at your windows, better controlling your home’s temperature to keep you more comfortable. A more balanced temperature means your heating and cooling systems may turn on less regularly, helping you spend less on your monthly costs.

These shades offer just the right concentration of opacity to permit in sunlight during the day and offer privacy at night. With extra features like LightLock™ and Duolite for select styles, you’ll get more control over light diffusion, room-darkening and blackout functions.

5. Sheer Shades

You could believe that sheer shades won’t offer ample privacy. But these custom window treatments are a great solution for bedrooms, since they have all the features you like most about shades and blinds.

Our sheer shades feature adaptable vanes that are sandwiched between two fabric panels that you can select. The panels change harsh sunlight into a welcoming glow, while the vanes give enhanced light control and privacy.

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