What blinds are best for privacy? Answer: There are four main blind types which are great to block out onlookers: shutters, venetians, verticals and vision blinds.If you have a more contemporary home, then you may like vision blinds. This type has a double layer of fabric with alternating voile and solid fabric pieces. Its looks very impressive yet minimal.Alternatively, you may have a more classic home in which case this merits either a shutter or venetian blind - wooden venetians, in particular, are extremely popular as you can easily tilt all the wooden slats and they are a lot more cost effective than shutter blinds.If you have a study , vertical blinds work extremely well, as well as patio doors. These blinds are arguably the most popular blind type!
