Combine Shades and Designer Draperies for a Layered Look

Using shades in combination with designer draperies has many benefits, both in design and in functionality. Combining these two window treatments opens up several options as far as style, but in general, this creates a textured, finished look that has a little something extra. Try combining shades and floor to ceiling draperies to enhance the size and shape of the windows in your home. Doing so will also provide you with more light and privacy control, soften the light in the room, and enhance height, adding drama.

Layering window treatments in this way is an excellent option for updating your home for summer because of the flexibility that it offers. At The Curtain Exchange, we have a distinctive selection of shades and blinds, a regularly updated line of designer draperies, and hundreds of fabrics to choose from to create custom made curtains, so visit our showroom to see what we have to offer, and start getting your home ready for summer!
