Unless it’s a bedroom or theater room, most rooms will benefit from semi-opaque options that allow natural light to filter in during the day but still allow enough privacy at night. It’s the most popular choice. Opaque or blackout options are for darkening the room where light is not wanted and privacy must be optimal. If a room needs to have both light filtering and room darkening, we have many “one-shade” solutions that act as a convertible from light-filtering to room-darkening. Another option that provides style and functionality is drapery that can smoothly traverse to open and closed positions.
