Light Control & Privacy
  While light control and privacy needs can be different, quite often both can be met with the same product. What amount of light control and privacy do you need from your window coverings?
I would like a window covering that ...

 
Reduces the glare and still reveals considerable details to the outside. Privacy is not important to me.
 
Softens the light and still reveals some details to the outside. I need moderate privacy.
 
Softens the light but reveals only shadow-like outlines to the outside. I need more privacy.
 
Diffuses the light and reveals no shape or details to the outside. I need complete privacy and room-darkening options.
 
Blocks virtually all the light and provides the most privacy and light control available.
 
I have no preference at this time.
