Transforming your windows into a stunning focal point is an art, and at Apollo Draperies, we believe in combining function and beauty to create a masterpiece. Layering window treatments is a key strategy to achieve both the luxe look you want for your home, and controlling light. There are many options for layering hard treatments like blinds, shutters, and shades with custom soft treatments to enhance your windows and elevate your space.

Custom Blinds and Drapes

Custom blinds provide a sleek and contemporary look to your windows, offering precise light control and privacy. To soften the hard lines of blinds, consider layering them with custom drapes. Choose luxurious fabrics that complement your decor, and allow the drapes to frame the blinds. This creates a sophisticated and versatile window treatment that balances functionality with elegance.

Custom Shutters and Valances

For a timeless and classic appeal, custom shutters are an excellent choice. To add warmth and texture, consider pairing shutters with a tailored valance. The valance softens the upper edge of the windows, creating a harmonious blend of structure and softness. Additionally, incorporating tiebacks or holdbacks with drapes can enhance the overall aesthetic while allowing you to control the amount of natural light entering the room.

Custom Shades and Cornices

Custom shades offer a diverse range of styles, from roller shades, to Roman shades, to woven wood shades. To elevate the look of shades, consider adding a decorative cornice. A custom cornice not only conceals the shade’s hardware but also adds a touch of luxury. Choose fabrics and trims that complement the shades, creating a cohesive and stylish window treatment. Here, we combined a sleek roller shade with a cornice in a pretty patterned fabric that was complementary to the home’s decor. The roller shade and cornice allow access to the patio door as well as provide privacy when desired.
