It's safe to say we all want our homes to look warm and inviting, but every now and then—we need a little Me Time just for ourselves. To help you create temporary privacy, interior designer Erika Uichanco shares several ways on how you can properly do it, depending on your needs, the size of your home and the style of interiors. Keep reading for some helpful tips: 


1. Curtains

"For more privacy, you can use lined curtains. If it is simply decorative, you can use unlined curtains to allow light to pass through. Curtains work well with traditional homes, but they can also be used in modern, contemporary homes by playing with the fabric color and patterns." 


2. Roman shades

"Roman shades are practical alternatives to heavy curtain drapery. They can easily be pulled up and down and can add elegance to any room. Roman shades work best in Shabby Chic-style and country homes, but they can also work in contemporary homes. 


3. Venetian blinds

"Venetian blinds seem old-fashioned, but with the right color and styling, they can make any home look polished. Tropical and Asian homes look extra cozy and warm with wooden venetian blinds." 


4. Custom window treatments

"Custom window treatments can be a good investment. Customize the dimension to your window size to create a tailored look. Roller blinds are a good choice for modern minimalist homes because they give a clean and streamlined appearance, and it is a no-fuss window covering choice."
