5 Best Privacy Blinds & Shades

Some blinds work well for energy efficiency. Others are meant more for decoration. Still others are best for safety and convenient, easy operation.

So, which work best for protecting your privacy? Here are some of your top choices:

2 Premium Faux Wood Blinds

1. Most Popular – 2” Premium Faux Wood Blinds

With a 4 ½ (out of 5) star rating, and 110 reviews, these are our most popular privacy blind of all. You can get them with a “routeless” option, which means the lift cords run through small notches on the outside of the slats. So there are no holes outsiders can peek through, which guarantees you maximum privacy.

They look like real wood, but one of their huge additional benefits is they’re more durable, resistant to moisture, and easier to clean than wood blinds. Plus, they have the highest possible rating for long-term heat and light exposure. They’re also fade and warp resistant.

2 Premium Wood Blinds

2. 2” Premium Wood Blinds

These are one of our best sellers. Like the faux wood blinds, they’re also routeless. But, they have that beautiful wooden look, and that’s the main reason why you’d buy these privacy blinds over any other.

There is a special UV inhibitor that protects against fading and warping. For all horizontal blinds, wood is also the best natural insulator. So that’s a nice bonus to have.

1 Privacy Aluminum Blinds
