Daytime Views with Nighttime Privacy

When choosing window treatments for your home, it’s important to consider not only style, but also function. What do you need the window treatments to do for you? For some homeowners, having a window treatment that allows them to see outside during the day is a high priority. For others, privacy, particularly at night, is an important concern.

The challenge is that many people are not looking for one or the other, but both of these features – a gorgeous view during the day, with privacy coverage in the evening. Is there a window treatment that can offer the best of both worlds?

Unfortunately, there is no perfect solution to this need. The good news, however, is that there are solutions from our Hunter Douglas Gallery that are effective, easy to use, and stylish. Here are three options we love for managing view with privacy:


Hunter Douglas motorized shades - Drapery Street


One of the simplest ways to alternate between a great view and privacy is with motorization. You can easily time your shades to open with the sunrise, and then close as it gets darker and people are able to see into your home. Hunter Douglas has motorization options you can “set and forget,” including motorization that can be synced with your local sunrise and sunset times.

Roller Screen Shades

Designer Roller Shade


Roller screen shades are a more manual option that still allows a large amount of control. They are available in varying degrees of opacity, so you can find just the right balance of light and privacy. There are also a wide variety of styles and colors available, so you don’t have to sacrifice style for function.

Hunter Douglas Duolite Products


Hunter Douglas Duolite Products are unique because they have a sheer component for daytime and a semi-opaque component for night. This award-winning product offers light filtration, privacy, and room darkening in one beautiful window treatment.

The right product for your home depends on your needs and preferences. We recommend stopping by our Carmel, Indiana gallery to see full-sized samples of these shades. Our knowledgeable staff can help you choose the window treatment that meets your needs and adds beauty to our home. Schedule an in-store consultation today to get started.

Day or night, we will make sure your windows are properly covered and well-dressed.
