How to Layer Windows…

…If You Love Drapes

blackoutsheers How to Mix and Match Window Treatments

If you want your windows to have visual softness and voluminous fabric, layer blackout drapes and sheer panels. Your room will be airy and bright during the day, with sound sleeping at night. Sheer panels let in soft filtered light while still preserving privacy, and blackout drapes allow for serenity and a full night of rest. You can even use two drapery rods to move either set independently, letting you control the light in your room however you want.

…If You Want an Eye Catching Look

Layering your windows with Roman shades and draperies can help you achieve an elegant look with true depth. Roman shades can leave small light gaps near the window frame—adding decorative side panels can give you complete darkness, while also letting you combine, mix and match patterns and styles of fabric. Choose from dozens of fabric options to achieve whatever look you want.

…If You Want Modern Sleekness
