5 Savvy Tips to Layer Your Window Treatments with Style

Some may think there are two ways to style windows in your home: blinds or curtains. But what about using the best of both? Layering your window treatments in Colorado Springs adds dimension, an extra layer of privacy or insulation, and contributes to the design and style of each room. If you’re interested in fresh ways to layer your window treatments, here are a few tips to get you started.

If You Want…Modern Flair

Keep up with the trends and layer your window coverings with sleek cellular shades and grommet drapes. Cellular shades offer privacy when you need it and insulation to keep your room warmer or cooler depending on the time of year. Choose from sheer to total blackout shades for bedrooms and layer these with contemporary grommet drapes with bold colors or patterns.

If You Want…Layers of Texture

If you’re a fan of unique materials and texture, natural woven shades will be your first pick. These blinds are exquisitely hand-crafted made from woven woods for exotic beauty. Choose from Bamboo, rattan, reeds, jute and wood based on your decorating needs. Layer these natural shades with drapery panels for softness and extra shade when you need it.

If You Want…to Make a Statement

Be bold and make a statement by layering your windows with printed Roman shades and drapes for elegance and depth. Roman shades allow light to enter from small gaps next to the window frame, so adding decorative panels can create dimension and give the room complete darkness. Mix and match your patterns and styles of fabric. You have plenty of combination options to make a statement with your Roman shades and draperies.

If You Want…a Classic Look

Keep it classic and stately with real wood or faux wood blinds. While these could be layered with drapes, you may decide they’re too beautiful to cover up. Consider layering a matching cornice at the top. This complements the wood and hides your blinds when they’re fully raised for a wide window view.

If You Want…Clean and Stylish

Change it up by layering any style of blinds or shades with a window valance. This is the perfect complementary feature to hide blinds when they are raised and add color or pattern to a room.
