Which Blinds are Best for Privacy?

Whether you’re facing busy apartment buildings or have rooms overlooking bustling streets, everyone needs to have a sense of cosiness and intimacy in their own home. We’ve curated a selection of our quality blinds that offer privacy without sacrificing natural light, with a range of styles depending on your preferences.

Double Roller Blinds


When it comes to versatility, double roller blinds are a dream. This adaptable style provides a range of lighting options, featuring a pairing of blackout and voile fabrics to provide you with either full concealment and darkness, reduced glare and obstructed views from the exterior, or a combination of the two! A modern and functional window dressing, double blinds enable you to feel comfortable in your own space, customising the privacy and light of the room as you go. Achieving satisfactory privacy for windows with this dual blind is easily done.




Day and night blinds (zebra)


It’s no wonder that day and night blinds are the up and coming window treatment of choice. This contemporary design showcases horizontal stripes in a mix of opaque and translucent fabric (Hence the alternative name of zebra blinds). A crossover between the popular roller blinds and venetian blinds, the merging of styles creates an ultra flexible range of interior effects, from dimmed and snug, to fully closed off.

Perfect for facilitating a private, personal feel without eliminating that beautiful natural light that flows in, this style can be used all over the home. Day and night blinds are especially great for a home office or study, allowing you to comfortably work from home while creating an appropriate space.



Vertical Blinds


A classic, stylish choice, vertical blinds offer a variety of materials and functions, from bright and airy sheer voiles, to light-filtering fabrics, and even blackout vertical blinds, this style has remained a firm favourite due to the minimal and versatile design. Great for establishing instant privacy when needed, you need only consider the desired lighting levels for rooms and that will help you with fabric choice!

Ideal for work spaces, schools, and more commercial environments, vertical blinds are great blinds for large windows. So if you’re looking at getting some brand new office blinds that assist in generating a productive, private atmosphere, vertical blinds are a must.



Roller Blinds


Roller blinds are a much-loved window finish for many, giving a simple but sleek aesthetic to rooms. If you have a space that requires privacy and glare control, but want to let the light stream in, voile roller blinds are a fantastic option. For heightened privacy and less visibility into your home, we have light-filtering blinds. Or if you’re searching for privacy blinds for bedrooms, blackout is the way to go.

One of the benefits of roller blinds is the sheer diversity of colour and patterns, giving you the freedom to coordinate with your interior design style while fulfilling your practical needs. 



Blackout Blinds

Favoured for impactful light control, blackout blinds are fundamental for creating a private, relaxed environment. This style blocks incoming light, as well as creating an opaque divider to prevent pedestrians from peeking into your home. Often utilised in the bedroom, blackout blinds create a restful atmosphere and assist peaceful sleep by stopping light from permeating your interiors.




Wooden Blinds


Venetian wooden blinds are another crowd-pleaser, as no matter how busy the location of your space,  you can allow light to stream in through partially closed slats, whilst shielding rooms from inquisitive onlookers.By tilting wooden slats upwards, you can welcome the sun while obscuring the view from the outside, making wood blinds brilliantly effective blinds for privacy.

Great for properties with a street view, wooden blinds give that shutter look but for a much more affordable price. From chic white wooden blinds to real wood finishes, and even faux wood for rooms exposed to moisture, our pvc range makes great privacy blinds for bathrooms​
