One of the main functions of window treatments is to provide privacy. Here at Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving the Bonita Springs and Fort Myers areas, many patio homes and other new home developments have smaller properties where your neighbors may have a straight visual shot into your home. With today’s wide variety of window treatments and installation options, you can have privacy without completely blocking your source of natural light.
This innovative window treatment style allows you to open your shades from either the top or the bottom. Especially good for windows that are taller than they are wide, this allows you to let in light from the top of your window while completely blocking the bottom part of the window. Top-down-bottom-up shades are great for behind bathtubs and in bedrooms. Use this style with most any type of honeycomb shades, roman shades, pleated shades, and woven wood shades.
Blinds or Shades for Privacy?
Blinds have slats that can be tilted to varying degrees, and shades are made of solid fabric. Any of our many window blind styles, including wood blinds or faux wood blinds, will give you the ability to tilt the slats so that no one can see in, but you can still let some light into the room. Shades, on the other hand, are either up, down, or somewhere in between if you have the top down/bottom up style.
Blackout Shades for Total Privacy
For absolute privacy and and room-darkening, choose blackout shades. Many of our window covering styles are available in blackout fabric. We also offer dual-shade options, where you can put a room-darkening roller shade toward the window and a sheer shade facing the room, each operating separately on the same cassette. With semi-opaque shades like a woven woods, add an optional privacy liner. Some shades like roman shades have inherent light gaps at the sides, so if that is a concern, you may want to have yours installed with an outside mount that completely covers your window opening.
Custom designed drapery not only adds a personalized touch of style to your room, it can also provide privacy. Add drapery to existing blinds and shades for more privacy when you need it, or add drapery panels to your window coverings to block light and provide privacy at the sides of your windows. We offer a wide variety of fabrics, patterns and styles to help you create beautiful custom drapery.
