It’s no secret that natural lighting can help improve mood and increase productivity, amongst many other benefits. In NYC, especially in high rise developments, natural light is available in abundance due to double height, floor to ceiling, or expansive windows in each luxury residence. But with all this light, comes lack of privacy.
Here are the top 5 window treatments that allow you to harvest natural lighting while having control of your interior privacy.
Top Down/ Bottom Up Window Treatments
Blinds and shades with top down/ bottom up operation are an amazing solution when you want versatility. Lifting the shades from the bottom up allow in natural light, but in turn, your interior may be visible to the outside.
Lowering the shades from the top down allows you to enjoy privacy when needed without sacrificing natural light.
Solar Screen Shades
If you want to maintain daytime privacy without sacrificing natural lighting and views, solar screen shades are great solutions. An additional benefit of solar screen shades is energy efficiency. Due to its ability to absorb harmful UV rays and lower solar gain, residents can enjoy lower energy costs year-round.
