The Best Window Privacy Options and Treatments

Big, bright windows are a major selling point for all homes. Once you move in, those beautiful windows can run up your utility bills and leave you wanting for privacy.

Window treatments are a great way to protect your privacy and save energy. The best window privacy options reflect your style and allow natural light in.

Not sure what window treatments will work for you? Don't worry, we've got you covered. Dollar Curtains + Blinds has all the window privacy options to suit your tastes and needs.

Read on for a list of options that will work well for your home.

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are made of panels of fabric that cover the width and length of your windows. They are ideal for people with specific tastes because they are highly customisable.

Choose from sheer or opaque fabrics, all of which are able to maintain their original quality after exposure to the bright Australian sun. Roller blinds can be opened and closed through chain control, spring-loaded operation, or motorisation.

If you're looking for versatility and easy customisation, these blinds will work for you.

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are traditionally an opaque window covering made from blockout fabrics. They are designed to be raised to let light in during the day and lowered at night to protect your privacy.

Roman blinds have beautiful fabric folds when drawn open and create a more decorative look. Depending on the fabric you choose, roman blinds can have a modern or traditional appearance.

Venetian blinds are the most traditional of all the window treatments. This is a window treatment to go for when you're working with a tight budget.

Venetian blinds consist of slatted blinds that can be opened or closed through the use of a cord. They can be the sole window treatment, or complemented with the use of curtain panels.

Sheer Curtains

Sheer curtains allow light in during the day while allowing for daytime privacy. They also allow you to look out and take in surrounding views. These curtains are made of very sheer fabric that is opened or closed through a pulley system that pinches or pleats the fabric together. This sheer fabric acts to diffuse and soften the natural light.

Sheer curtains are great for adding height to rooms with low ceilings, and for softening up the look of bare walls and windows. They are ideal to layer with blockout curtains or blinds so you can achieve day and night time privacy as well as light control at night time with the blockout fabric.

Interior Plantation Shutters

There are many different types of shutters available for the interior of your home, but plantation shutters are one of the best. These shutters are hinged to the window and consist of slatted blinds inside a frame.

Plantation shutters are super versatile. You can open the blinds within the shutters, or pull or fold the shutters away from the window to allow lots of light to come in. Close them at night for privacy.

Use Any of These Window Privacy Options

Protecting the privacy of your home doesn't mean you have to sacrifice natural light and style. Window privacy options make the most of natural light, style, and privacy so you'll have a home that is both beautiful and secure.

They also have the added benefit of energy savings during those sweltering Australian summers. Want to learn more about window privacy options that are perfect for your home? Contact us today for your free in-home measure and quote.
