Setting up privacy in your home without boarding up the windows with planks can be tough. If you get
heavy material curtains, you will block out all the light coming into your room. If you use the sheer
material, you will have plenty of light but none of the privacy you so badly wanted.
To have the best of both worlds use shutters. Screens are flexible and can be used to work out the
problem of privacy. You can use shutters in their different forms. Whether you want them as bi-folds or
with the top half down, they will prove a great option for privacy on your windows.
