February 05, 2021

Allowing outdoor light into your home is a vital part of bringing your living space together. The sun’s rays brighten your daily activities and makes your interior decorating shine. With that in mind, many Boston homeowners don’t let enough light in, as opening your window treatments also allows neighbors to peer into your home.

Fortunately, you’ll never have to compromise privacy for outdoor light with the right window treatments for privacy in Boston -- Polywood® plantation shutters!

Durable Plantation Shutters Are Designed With Privacy in Mind

Polywood shutters are smartly designed for the best possible combination of daylight and privacy. Thanks to small gaps and due to the small spaces, you can create and a full range of movement, you can effortlessly tweak your settings to allow the right amount of daylight while blocking the view of curious onlookers.

You can take more control over light levels by customizing with your choice of louver sizes: the 4.5” for enhanced viewing and ease of cleaning, 3.5” customary sizing or the 2.5” option. No matter the width or height of your window, take solace in the fact that your customized plantation shutters will be a perfect fit while still allowing for plenty of sunshine.

A great advantage of plantation shutters is that they are custom-fitted to windows of any shape. Circle, octagon, and arches are typically a challenge to fit and leave you open to privacy concerns. But our interior shutters can be crafted to your non-traditional window openings, meaning you can just angle the slats for sunshine and privacy, and still experience the dazzling design element of your stylish window openings.

Optional Window Treatments For Privacy in Boston

If you would like a window treatment a bit different from an interior shutter that still provides the right mix of privacy and natural light, you have several additional options:

  • Zebra Shades: Installing a zebra shade gives you the right degree of light management. These treatments are constructed with a carefully designed roll of fabric that consists of alternating sheer and solid paneling. When open, the the product seems to have stripes, which allows sunlight to enter. If you’re looking for complete privacy, change the placement of the opaque paneling so they achieve your goal.

  • Sheer Shades: When there is concern a Polywood shutter might be a bit much, you should consider a sheer shade. These popular window coverings function similarly to Polywood shutters, as they have thin, louver like slats in between the two layers of sheer fabric. Sunlight comes through the fabric, and you can tilt the slats to achieve your required privacy levels.

  • Roller Shades With Opaque Material: Your options are virtually limitless when it comes to roller shades in Boston. But if you’re looking for total seclusion, black-out shades function more effectively than sheer shades as they prevent the visibility of shadows through the window at night.
