5 Best Shades for Privacy at Night

When you want practical window treatments, shades are a excellent style for just about any space in your house. On top of giving excellent privacy at night, they can also boost energy efficiency and reduce damaging UV rays.

Plus, it’s a cinch to match them to your décor through a full collection of fabrics and enhancements including motorized shades that make operation even easier. Your local Louver Shop of Charleston design professional will go over 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’ favorite selections for best shades for privacy at night.

1. Roller Shades

Roller shades are a good option when you are looking for a simple option for privacy. They’re created from one piece of fabric that you can personalize. With hundreds of fabrics and differing opacities to select from, you’re certain to find one that works with your contemporary residence and gives 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 variety of patterns, textures and colors. But whichever fabric you select, you’ll enjoy greater 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 leaks.

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

2. Bamboo Shades

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

These shades are available in three different looks, so you can find the ideal fit for your house. These styles include Roman, which lays flat when drawn, and waterfall Roman, which folds into tidily pleats when up or shut. Then, you can select from optional banding, valances and headrails to finish the look.

3. Roman Shades

With soft fabric folds, Roman shades have the appearance of drapes with the adjustability of shades. That way, it’s less complicated to enjoy sunshine during the day and enhanced privacy at night, with no inconvenience of drawing awkward drapes.

With Vignette®, you can include a Duolite® panel to change your window treatments into blackout shades during the day and privacy shades at night. With no showing rear cords, Vignette delivers a sleek look for your stylish home.

When you want enhanced energy efficiency, there’s Solera®. These honeycomb roman shades incorporate cells that hold air for increased insulation. The result is reduced energy loss at your windows, a cozier house and potentially a decreased utility expense yearly. Personalize yours through a collection of lavish woven and non-woven fabrics, textures and patterns, in addition to privacy-enhancing opacities.

4. Honeycomb Shades

Get enhanced energy efficiency and more privacy at nighttime with honeycomb shades. These shades create a barrier that holds air at your windows, better controlling your house’s heating and cooling to keep you more comfortable. A more even temperature means your heating and cooling systems may run less regularly, helping you conserve more on your monthly expenses.

These shades offer just the right concentration of opacity to let in sun during the day and provide privacy at night. With extra features like LightLock™ and Duolite for select styles, you’ll have added control over light diffusion, room-darkening and blackout capabilities.

5. Sheer Shades

You might think that sheer shades won’t give enough privacy. But these custom window treatments are a fantastic style for bedrooms, because they have all the features you enjoy most about shades and blinds.

Our sheer shades have adjustable vanes that sit between two fabric panels that you can choose. The panels transform bright sunlight into a light glow, while the vanes deliver greater light control and privacy.

You’ll also have a choice of cord-free and smart operating systems to make getting the most out of your shades even quicker.
