We're trying to decide on window coverings for our master bedroom and bathroom, which face the street, so privacy is a major concern. It's on the second floor so we only need to cover the bottom half of the windows to block the view. I'm leaning towards the top/down, bottom up blinds so I can keep the bottom part of the window covered. I also want it to look nice from the outside. Right now there are old shutters on there (came with the house). They are beaten up but are giving us the privacy we need right now. The shutters seem to give off a more finished look than the blinds. Thoughts?
