Did you know that you can add dimension to your house with window treatments while better insulating your rooms? By layering your treatments, you can not only jazz up the vibe but also protect your home from sunlight and block out harsh artificial lights more effectively.
The Benefits Of Layering Window Treatments
By layering your different coverings, you create more dimension in a room which makes it more visually interesting. You also add layers in front of your glass windows, which serve to trap or block out heat as needed. It also helps to keep your rooms darker, whether from an annoying angle of the sun or from bright streetlights at night. By layering your window treatments, you get an aesthetic and a functionality upgrade.
Which Window Coverings Work Well Together
Of course, there are some treatments that work very well together while others don’t at all. For example, you wouldn’t want to layer up shades and blinds. because they operate at the same level of distance from the window, it becomes too cluttered to work. However, you can layer blinds and shades. You can also layer curtains or drapes in front of just about any other window treatments. Because they are installed a bit out front of a window, they don’t clash in proximity to other treatments. They also add a lovely pop of color or texture. Curtains work really well in conjunction with blinds, shades, etc. to block extra light and act as further insulation.
Where To Start
You may not want to layer up coverings in every room. Prioritize which rooms you need extra help in when it comes to blocking light or controlling temperature. Typically, bedrooms are great candidates for layering because you want a dark room to sleep in. You may also want to layer up window treatments in a main room with lots of windows. This will help insulate your whole house better.
