29 Beautiful Layered Window Treatment Ideas
Window treatments aren’t a must if you wanna enjoy some gorgeous view but if you want to block out some excessive sunshine or give more privacy to the space from time to time, they are necessary. I’d advise not just one solution but layered window treatments to maximize functionality and to make the look cooler. How to choose them and what options to try? Here are some ideas.
Understand The Function Of Your Window Treatments
Before you choose something, answer the main question: what’s the function? Is it just for decor and style or you want more privacy? Do you need lots of natural light or you wanna block out some sunshine? Only after you answer these questions you will be able to choose right window treatments to layer.

Find Out The Main Window Treatment
An important point, especially if you aren’t going to order both treatments at a high price, is to understand the main treatment. This will be your focal point and you can pay a higher price for it, while the second treatment can be of a reasonable price as it won’t attract that much attention (unless you are ready to spend a lot on both).
Be sure to consider your window treatment choices in light of how you decorate the rest of the room as well. Continuing with the example of using bold patterned drapes, it’s important to know that making that choice will automatically mean they’re a big focal point. Is that what you want? Or would you rather have a bold rug be the attention-grabber? Sometimes you may want your window treatments to be a star of your room as a whole, but other times, you’d rather them play more of a supporting role. You can definitely still layer them, but stick with neutrals or a more tone-on-tone combo with your fabrics and materials. Try to get more textural blinds or curtains or both as all things textural are on top right now. Also, getting contrasting treatments will attract more attention to your windows.

Hang Them Right
Hanging your curtains right does half the deal: hang them high and wide if possible, and make sure they just touch or hang a tad higher than the floor. “High and wide” refers to the curtain rod itself – you want to mount it high above the window and extend it beyond the frame on each side.
