There are many options to achieve privacy. Draperies or curtains are the simplest choices. Lighter fabrics may require a lining. Layering using draperies, curtains, or panels accompanied by shades or blinds gives you more alternatives and a more dramatic look. (drapery fabric is heavier than curtains, both open and close; panels are stationery). Blinds or decorative shades can be used alone in less formal rooms.

for light control over a large expanse.

Statement window treatments can call attention to a beautiful view. If privacy is not a consideration, the simplest choice is panels that are stationery, and simply frame the window. If privacy is a factor, window treatments should open and close as needed. Stationary drapes, or blinds, or shades permanently block a poor view.
