If the idea of blinds and curtains leaves you bored, you needn't worry. There are a number of other ways to maintain privacy in your home without blocking out light.
• Try giving windows an acid-etched glass look with plain or patterned designs, Brume do these.
• Alison White manufactures magnetic window coverings that can be cut to fit, and come in plain or perforated finishes.
• Beaded curtains can make an unusual statement and, if you want to be creative, you can make them yourself.
• Screens and panels can be adapted, or custom made, to fit window areas. Try Draks' Canto range for this.
