Back in the old days, that was a problem. These days, for doors leading to the outside veranda or gardens, we have sliding glass doors on the outside, and shoji on the inside, instead of curtains. (The front door is a solid steel door with two locks and an alarm.)

Between the bedroom and the living room, the shoji are solid rather than paper, for more privacy, as is the door from the bedroom to the hallway. The shoji between the dinning room and the living room is paper, just like the ones leading out to the veranda. In fancy restaurants, the walls to each private dinning space are shoji, but with plastic instead of paper to keep drunk customers from poking through.
