This is a trend in both fashion and window treatments- it’s beautiful, and it also serves a practical purpose. At the window, the first layer is the light- filtering one; it can provide the beauty of a soft diffusion of light as well as privacy. The second is the decorative layer, which is typically achieved by adding soft treatments, such as valances or draperies. Layering also provides practical benefits, such as correcting odd-size and out-of-square windows and improving the proportions of a room by heightening a window treatment, which makes the room appear larger.
