I like the clean look of open, expansive windows, but I don't want to sacrifice privacy either. What are your thoughts?
Windows with no window coverings is a look I've been seeing in magazines, and I always wonder if those who skip the window coverings don't worry about neighbors or privacy! I definitely agree with you that you shouldn't sacrifice privacy for getting that open look you enjoy. I'd recommend trying window shadings with very little stack at the top like Silhouette®, Pirouette®, Vignette®, or the Duette® Architella®.
