What are layered window treatments and why are they so popular for 2014?

When you have more than one type of window treatment on one window, that is a layered window treatment. By using two or three different styles of coverings on one window, you can create the ultimate in flexibility of light control and privacy.

Look for simplicity and lightness when layering. Try to choose styles that can be operated simply and do not require too many tracks and fixings, as too much hardware can spoil the effect.

Classic roman shades, relaxed roman shades and roller shades all work very well combined with curtains or lined draperies. A custom roman shade lined with black out lining can be combined with sheer curtains, or you can do the opposite: sheer romans paired with black-out lined draperies.
