Which Blinds Are Best for Privacy?

Blinds can help significantly beautify the interior of your home, and even enhance its energy efficiency. However, it is safe to say that one of the main reasons why many homeowners put blinds on their windows is for privacy. After all, no one wants to feel the prying eyes of neighbors or passersby on them while they’re in the comfort of their own home. With so many blinds available on the market today, however, it is helpful to know which blinds are actually the best for privacy so that you can be sure the style you choose will offer the benefits you’re looking for. Consider the following options when looking for blinds that will help you achieve the comfort and privacy you and your family deserve:

Blackout Blinds

Blackout blinds are exactly what they sound like: blinds that block out all daylight. They are a great option for anyone who wants total privacy in their home, and are often placed in nurseries, media rooms, and bedrooms where you want to get some undisturbed shut eye.

Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds are versatile because they allow for both privacy and light filtration. The way to have both is by bringing the blinds down and then rotating the slats so that they angle up. You will still enjoy some light coming into your home without having to worry about anyone seeing into it.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds have thicker slats than horizontal blinds, which means that when they’re closed, they can block out more light and provide the ultimate privacy. These blinds are an especially popular solution for sliding glass doors, where they can be side stacked to allow you to walk through your patio doors without any obstruction.

What to Avoid

One thing is for sure; if privacy is a main concern for you, it is wise to avoid daylight blinds. This particular blind style is designed to allow natural light to flood your home even when they are completely closed, so they will not provide the privacy you want at night.

Bay Home & Window partners with Costco. Not only did the Costco collaboration help to give us confidence in the quality of Bay Home & Window, but we also got a great deal on our purchase of window coverings for our whole house! We're very happy with the quality of the product and the high-quality installation work. The window coverings look great.

We had cellular shades installed and it was just want we needed! Finally, we can block out the sun that is just merciless this time of year. I can tell the quality is superb, and install was painless. We had originally ordered light filtering shades and then discovered that it still made the rooms too bright. Bay Home made it easy and affordable to reorder the replacements. They really want us to enjoy our home. Thank you Bay Home & Windows!

Years ago we bought custom wood shutters throughout our home from Bay Home & Window. We had a great experience and our shutters still look great. Recently we remodeled our closet and had them back to create a custom closet. I had no idea how much we could love a closet. Everyone at Bay Home and Window was easy to work with they helped us figure out the design and utilized every inch of our odd sized space. From appointment scheduling to installation everyone was very professional and exceeded our expectations.
