My house is very close to my neighbors. What product would you recommend for providing optimal privacy in this situation?
Let me answer your question by way of a personal story: Just recently, I woke up in my new townhouse. I went downstairs to the kitchen to get a glass of juice, and to admire my recently planted annuals and perennials. The window overlooking the courtyard is a nice sized double window. I've put Heritance® hardwood shutters there with a TruView™ rear tilt system, which discreetly locates the tilt bar so it's barely visible from the front. I love these custom-crafted shutters because they add architectural interest to a room, are easy to maintain, and provide great privacy. As I opened the louvers to check out my flowers, I saw my neighbor looking right at me. I was so happy I had my shutters installed so he couldn't clearly see me in my ratty jammies. If you like the classic look of a shutter as much as I do, you'll also be very happy with the privacy you'll enjoy with Heritance hardwood shutters on your windows.
