Do you want your windows to stand out? The designers recommend layered window treatments if you want to achieve the look. Orlando Shutters Blinds and More will help you choose the right combination of colors and textures to achieve the layered window effect.
Light Filtering Layers
When you’re confused with how to start layering window treatments, it is better to keep one layer from the light filtering family. The light filtering layer will allow the natural light to come in through the day. The second layer, you can experiment a lot. You can play with colors, patterns and textures. A blackout shade will enhance the privacy at night, and you can enjoy a good night’s sleep.
Choose colors from the same family to create contrasting designs
You do not have to match the colors perfectly when layering the windows. Solar shades can be your first layer in a lighter tone, and you can choose a print drapery as a second layer in dark brown and yellow tones. Both the window treatments combine well, and you get a stunning window.
One color but different textures
If your room has one predominant color, you can layer the window treatment in texture. Choose one color but in different textures. You can take light filtering solar shades and pair it up with blackout drapes or even with stripes.
Make the dominant pattern a central focal point
If you have chosen a patterned roller or shade as your primary window treatment, you can pick a color from the same pattern for layering. This helps you bind all the décor elements together and create a cohesive look.
Mix two prints but be cautious
If you are wanting to try something different and unusual, you can think of mixing two prints. We advise you to choose one big and bold prints and the other can be a delicate or small print. You can mix floral prints with stripes, they look good.
A very important point to remember is that when you wish to combine curtains or drapery with blinds or shades, there should be enough contrast so that the two window treatments have a unique identity and won’t clash.
