At Blinds & Designs serving Marin County, many customers are looking for a truly unique window design that will wow visitors and round out their space. With Hunter Douglas, there are plenty of options for doing that, including adding layers to the window, which adds dimension and depth. Check out this post to learn how to do it!

Choose Your Base Window Covering

Start by determining the window treatment that is directly against the window. You could get a new window fashion or keep one that is already there. In general, smaller rooms call for treatments that present a clean look while larger rooms call for more colorful, dramatic shades. In terms of the overall look of the shade, if your room has bright colors, you might consider a more neutral shade, and if you have lots of pattern throughout the space, you might want a simpler style for the treatment. Next determine the look for your layers.

  • Natural. Bringing in the feel of the outdoors could complement your style, so options like Provenance® Woven Wood Shades—which are made from woven reeds, grasses, and bamboo—might be a good choice. You can pair them with drapes of bold color or pattern to complement their look and allow you full privacy and light control when you want it
  • Modern. To present a contemporary design, the sleek lines of a cellular shade like Duette® Honeycomb Shades pair well with the right drapes. If your shade is light or neutral, you can complement it with a darker drape; if your shade is solid, you could consider a drape in a pattern
  • Sophisticated. Roman shades are timelessly elegant, and Vignette® Modern Roman Shades offer a number of styles and fold sizes that will bring depth and flair to your room. Your side drapery will help reduce any potential light gaps from the shade, while adding a dramatic layer that will bring visual interest to the window.

For Rooms That Need Darkness

Rooms like bedrooms or media rooms frequently call for complete darkness at times, for a good night’s sleep or to set the stage for movie night. Sheer shades such as Silhouette® Window Shadings diffuse natural light beautifully when you want it and pair nicely with blackout drapes when you need complete privacy and darkness.
