How Can I Improve My Window Privacy?


We all value privacy. It’s why our homes have doors and why we dress our windows. However, windows are also our view of the outside world. We must choose our covering wisely, allowing maximum privacy levels while allowing sunlight to dazzle through. 

Improve your window privacy with plantation shutters

Plantation shutters are the best window covering for increasing your privacy levels. Made to measure the exact dimensions of your window, they will ensure all of your window is hidden when closed. 

Unlike curtains and blinds, plantation shutters allow for maximum privacy levels while allowing sunlight to enter your home by adjusting the louvres accordingly. As plantation shutters are built to last, they will save you money in the long run. 

Plantation shutters come in a range of styles, so you will always find a design that will meet your needs:

Full-height shutters cover the entire window. They have movable slats that allow for as much or as little light to enter your home as you like. For complete privacy, keep the panels closed. 

Cafe-style plantation shutters usually only cover the bottom half of the window, but they can stop at any point of your window. This allows for privacy while still brightening up your room. 

A versatile option, tier-on-tier plantation shutters consist of two sections: one on top and one on the bottom. This allows you to open the panels separately, leaving the bottom closed while the top is open.

Solid shutters are comprised of panels of wood with no movable slats. If you’re looking for a window covering that offers maximum privacy, this option may be for you.
