5 Best Shades for Privacy at Night

When you want versatile window treatments, shades are a great style for just about any room in your home. In addition to providing great privacy at night, they can also improve energy efficiency and reduce hazardous UV rays.

Plus, it’s easy to coordinate them with your style through a wide collection of fabrics and options like motorized shades that make operation even faster. Your local Louver Shop of Boston design consultant will go over all the solutions with you during your free consultation. There’s zero pressure or obligation, just access to no-cost 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 good solution when you are seeking a simple style for privacy. They’re produced from one piece of fabric that you can individualize. With hundreds of fabrics and different opacities to choose from, you’re certain to find one that matches your contemporary home and gives the privacy you are seeking.

Our Designer Roller Shades are made with style 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 have 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 need privacy besides sun protection, there’s Designer Screen Shades. These shades stop at least 75% of the sun’s dangerous UV rays, defending your flooring, furniture and artwork.

2. Bamboo Shades

Seeking a more natural style? Bamboo shades are created from authentic grasses, reeds and woods to provide warmth and dimension to your house. And you can personalize yours with light-filtering liners to add enhanced privacy at nighttime.

These shades come in three distinctive styles, so you can find the right match for your home. These styles include Roman, which lays flat when drawn, and waterfall Roman, which folds into neat pleats when raised or down. Then, you can choose 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 adjustability of shades. That way, it’s easier to enjoy sunshine during the day and enhanced privacy at night, without the annoyance of moving heavy drapes.

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

When you want greater energy efficiency, there’s Solera®. These honeycomb roman shades feature cells that capture air for enhanced insulation. The result is reduced energy loss at your windows, a more comfortable house and potentially a smaller energy bill yearly. Personalize yours through a collection of premium woven and non-woven fabrics, textures and patterns, as well as privacy-boosting opacities.

4. Honeycomb Shades

Have improved energy efficiency and more privacy at nighttime with honeycomb shades. These shades make a barrier that holds air at your windows, better managing your home’s temps to keep you more comfortable. A more even temperature means your heating and cooling systems may operate less regularly, helping you spend less on your monthly bills.

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

5. Sheer Shades

You might have the impression that sheer shades won’t provide adequate privacy. But these custom window treatments are a fantastic style for bedrooms, because they include all the features you like most about shades and blinds.

Our sheer shades feature movable vanes that are sandwiched between two fabric panels that you can choose. The panels change bright sunlight into a soft 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 getting the most out of your shades even faster.
