Top Three Blinds That Provide Privacy

There are so many types of blinds out there that you can be spoiled for choice when it comes to maintaining your privacy. Other than style, privacy is one of the main reasons we buy blinds for our home. If your house backs onto a main road or is overlooked by other buildings, blinds can help to give you shelter and security from nosy neighbours and passersby.

Opting for different materials with varying opacity can ensure that you get the level of privacy you are looking for. 

Here are our top 3 recommended blind styles for privacy.

Venetian Blinds

These blinds are useful for letting the light into your house whilst still maintaining your privacy. 

When turned up these blinds offer more natural light into the room, whereas when turned down, they block out prying eyes from your windows and allow you to live comfortably in your own home. Whichever you choose, they offer a stylish and modern element to your interior decor which fits with a multitude of furniture choices.

Dim-out Blinds

These blinds offer some light filtration, but not nearly as much as Venetian blinds. They are available in a vast array of colours and styles. Because this type of blind is fitted right to the edge of the window, they can offer optimal privacy for you and your family during the evenings.

Dim-out blinds means that you can have shade and privacy whilst still having a semi-transparent window dressing that suits the style and aesthetic of your living space.

Blackout Blinds

With a tighter weave coupled with a fine foam lining, blackout blinds are perfect for keeping a room dark and private, and muffling sound from the busy outside world. 

It’s worth remembering that if you buy your blinds without measuring them for your windows perfectly, you can end up with light filtering through the narrow edges of the blinds. However, if measured perfectly, these blinds will make your room as dark as possible, giving you a long and peaceful sleep. The perfect way to keep the kids in bed longer in the morning!

Here at Flair Blinds, we offer all three of these types of blinds in a number of colours. You are welcome to come along and check them out in our Sunderland or Chester-le-Street showrooms to see just how well they keep the light out.
