Layering Window Treatments Adds Depth and Elegance to Your Best Light Source.

Layering has been a trend in fashion for years, bringing a new look to almost any single piece of clothing by simply adding to it.  The same holds true at your windows, whether adding a layer above or below the existing treatment, such as adding a sheer sun shade behind draperies, or starting from scratch with layers in mind.

With new styles and materials, your windows become focal points that work for you! Some of the more interesting trends include treated fabrics that appear to have a soft metallic sheen, and new “flat” shades with alternating sheer and opaque panels that look stunning beneath luxurious draperies. You can even place an opaque layer above or below sheer fabric treatments, shades or blinds for near utter darkness in the sleeping quarters (or theater room!) of your home.

Layering can also be simply an aspect of décor that makes a statement.  Think billowy, fancifully patterned roman shades beneath softly textured, jewel-toned draperies, or woven natural fiber blinds under layers of silk and sheer fabric treatments.

No matter how you layer, you gain better light control, privacy and heating/cooling efficiency while making your room more beautifully elegant when you bring layering to your windows!
