Layering draperies is one way to get multiple looks from your window treatments. If you are used to hotel drapes, then you understand the concept. When done for residential applications, like your Reno home, we can get much more creative. In this case, we placed the sheer as the layer closest to the room, and used a light filtering fabric closest to the window in a dynamic color to add to the impact of the treatment. Sheers these days are varied in styles and construction. You can choose something very simple or something very exciting.

This particular Reno home chose a fun patterned semi-sheer fabric. Even when this material is unlined, it still offers good privacy. It is a good choice for their master bedroom. If they had an amazing view from this room, I would have suggested something more sheer to maximize their view. Also, we had to consider how dark they needed the room to be. In this case, they didn’t mind having the light enter the room in the morning, so we chose a light-filtering fabric. Many people prefer a room darkening fabric, but the options are endless. One nice thing about doing this window treatment in layers is that if they ever want to change the back layer to a darker version, they can add a blackout lining or just have a separate lining layer made to replace the existing fabric.

In the end, drapery design is only partially about function. I guess you can say that we put the “fun” in functional. Because of the pattern and style in the sheer fabric, the drapery window treatment here finishes off the room elegantly and fittingly.
