Layering Window Treatments from Hunter Douglas

Three Reasons You’ll Love Layering with Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ Side Panels and Drapery

Most select a single covering for each of the windows in their home, whether blinds, shades, or drapery. However, they are missing out on the benefits of layering window treatments. At Exciting Windows! By MiniBlind King, we love layering Hunter Douglas window treatments with their gorgeous Design Studio™ Side Panels and Drapery.

More Style

Double the window treatments means twice the blank canvas to display your personal design style. Pair a solid-color window shade with Design Studio™ Drapery or frame out a patterned shade with Design Studio™ Side Panels. Add value to your home with shutters and softness to your room with long, flowing drapery. Experiment with mixing patterns and colors to highlight your unique personality throughout your home. Some of our favorite Hunter Douglas window treatments to pair with Design Studio™ Side Panels and Drapery include:

Extra Insulation

When you pair other window treatments with Design Studio™ Side Panels and Drapery, you get an extra layer of insulation. On extremely cold or hot days, closing both your primary window treatment and your drapery creates a trapped layer of air that insulates your home from outside temperatures, keeping your interior more comfortable and reducing your heating and cooling needs. This can drastically reduce your energy usage, making your home more efficient and your bills more affordable. What’s not to love about that?

You can maximize the energy efficiency of your home by layering Design Studio™ Side Panels and Drapery with Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades from Hunter Douglas. The honeycomb shades create a double layer of trapped air pockets that insulate your windows from outside air temperatures, and drawing your drapery closed means you’ll have triple the protection from the elements!

Improved Light Control

Light pollution in your bedroom can reduce your quality of sleep significantly. This is particularly problematic on endless summer days when you have to go to bed while it’s still light outside. In those instances, a single window treatment may not be sufficient. Light often leaks around the edges of shades and through the cord holes in blinds. That’s why layering with Design Studio™ Side Panels and Drapery can improve the light control in your space. By overlapping your primary window treatment, they block stray light for a better night’s sleep.

For best results, pair your Design Studio™ Side Panels and Drapery with these light-blocking products from Hunter Douglas:

  • Vignette®Duolite® Modern Roman Shades add a room-darkening roller shade to your roman shades for better light control.
  • Duette® Honeycomb Shades with LightLock™ fit into a u-shaped channel that blends in with your window frame to prevent light from penetrating around the edges of your shades.
  • EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds with de-Light™ eliminate cord holes and create a tighter fit in your window frame to reduce light leakage.
