5 Best Shades for Privacy at Night

When you need versatile window treatments, shades are a great option for just about any room in your home. In addition to providing great privacy at night, they can also help improve energy efficiency and filter harmful UV rays.

Plus, it’s easy to match them to your style through a wide collection of fabrics and options like motorized shades that make operation even easier. Your local Louver Shop design professional can review all the options with you during your no-pressure, no obligation free consultation.

Here are our designers’ favorite selections for best shades for privacy at night.

1. Roller Shades

Roller shades are a great option when you want a simple, fuss-free solution for privacy. They’re made from a single piece of fabric that you can customize. With hundreds of fabrics and varying opacities to choose from, you’re sure to find one that matches your modern home and provides the privacy you need.

Our Designer Roller Shades are designed with style and privacy in mind. There’s more than 300 fabrics to choose from in a variety of patterns, textures and colors. But whatever fabric you choose, you’ll enjoy greater privacy and light control through an exclusive standard feature. Hunter Douglas’ patented Custom Clutch operating system keeps the shade close to the window, stopping light leaks.

When you want privacy plus sun protection, there’s Designer Screen Shades. These shades block at least 75% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, protecting your flooring, furniture and artwork from damaging light.

2. Bamboo Shades

Looking for a more natural look? Bamboo shades are made from real grasses, reeds and woods to add warmth and dimension to your home. And you can customize yours with light-filtering liners to add even more privacy at nighttime.

These shades are available in three distinct styles, so you can find the right fit for your home. These styles include Roman, which lay flat when closed, and waterfall Roman, which fold into neat pleats when opened or closed. Then, you can choose from optional banding, valances and headrails to complete the look.

3. Roman Shades

With soft fabric folds, Roman shades provide the feel of drapes with the convenient adjustability of shades. That way, it’s easier to enjoy sunshine during the day and more privacy at night, without the hassle of moving heavy drapes.

With Vignette®, you can add a Duolite® panel to transform your window treatments into blackout shades during the day and privacy shades at night. With no exposed rear cords, Vignette delivers a clean, uncluttered look for your modern home.

When you want more energy efficiency, there’s Solera®. These honeycomb roman shades have cells that trap air to provide more insulation. The result is less energy loss at your windows, a more comfortable home and potentially a lower energy bill year-round. Customize yours through a collection of luxurious woven and non-woven fabrics, textures and patterns, as well as privacy-boosting opacities.

4. Honeycomb Shades

Enjoy improved energy efficiency and more privacy at nighttime with honeycomb shades. These shades add a barrier that traps air at your windows, which helps regulate your home’s temperature to keep you more comfortable. A more regulated temperature means your heating and cooling systems may run less frequently, helping you save more on your monthly bills.

These shades offer just the right balance of opacity to let in sunlight during the day and provide privacy at night. With optional features like LightLock™ and Duolite for select styles, you’ll get more control over light diffusion, room-darkening and blackout capabilities.

5. Sheer Shades

You might think that sheer shades won’t provide enough privacy. But these custom window treatments are a great option for bedrooms, since they incorporate all the features you love most about shades and blinds.

Our sheer shades feature adjustable vanes that float between two fabric panels that you can customize. The panels help transform harsh sunlight into a welcoming glow, while the vanes provide superior light control and privacy.

You’ll also have a choice of cord-free and smart operating systems to make adjusting your shades even easier.
