According to a recent survey about what the UK would rather keep out of sight of nosey neighbours, ‘heated discussions’ came out on top with 43.1% of the votes.
Other answers included untidy outdoor areas (22%), a messy house (18%), displays of affection (7.7%) and mealtimes (5.1%). A lazy ‘afternoon on the couch’ was evidently less of a concern, with just 3.5% of people keen to hide it from the neighbours.
Whatever reason for wanting a little more privacy, Luxaflex® can help.
For large windows, Luxaflex® invented Top Down / Bottom-Up blinds (sometimes called privacy blinds) with a clever design that lets you open your blind from the top, the bottom, or anywhere in between to give you the best of both worlds. You can preserve your home's privacy and natural light, whilst stopping unwanted views into your home.
Our unique Sonnette™ Shades are also available in two opacities—semi-opaque, which softly diffuses light; and room darkening, which blocks light and affords an increased amount of privacy.
Made-to-measure shades like these can be designed for windows and doors, so you can have matching designs across windows, French doors, sliding patio doors and more.
Energy-efficient Duette® Shades are available in a wide range of fabrics including sheer, translucent, and room-darkening; allowing you to choose the right level of light and privacy to suit your home. These insulating shades combine form and function, looking beautiful at your windows while also keeping your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
The unique design of our versatile Pirouette® Shades offers many looks and moods, with undulating vanes and luxurious weaves - all in one stylish blind. From light and airy sheers to room-darkening fabrics, you can enjoy complete control over the amount of light and levels of view-through.
Offering classic style and timeless elegance, wooden blinds or faux wood shutters could be the ideal privacy solution for your windows.
And if you fall within the 22% of people that would rather keep a messy garden area away from neighbours’ prying eyes, you might want to take a look at our beautiful (and practical) range of awnings...
