Adding Nighttime Privacy to Your Home

Toronto's best window blinds to increase nighttime privacy

We can’t deny it. The evenings are DARK. When it feels like midnight during dinner, you know you’re using your interior lights so much more. That means your nighttime privacy needs an upgrade. Our window covering specialists have some great ideas for the shades, blinds, shutters and drapery that can make that a reality.

Dual Shades: The Best of Both Worlds

When you need nighttime privacy, but you don’t want to give up the daytime natural light, dual shades are a great choice. With Silhouette shades, or other sheer shades, you can enjoy soft, filtered light all day long. When you want to block out intense light–or this time of year, prying outside views in the evening–dropping that second blackout shade into place will be an amazing solution.

Coverage for Lower Windows

If you have walls with two layers of windows, but you need to protect your nighttime privacy, consider covering the bottom. You may want to leave the top open to bring in natural light and sky views, while the bottom can be closed off easily.

The Right Opacity

One of the best aspects of working with a window covering specialist is the guidance you’ll get about the little details. These small details can sometimes make the biggest difference. Opacity can have a huge effect on your light control, but it can also determine the right kind of privacy based on the space. Opacity levels can range from view-through, all the way to blackout.
