Why Choose Soft Shades

So, why should you choose soft shades for layering? Soft shades combine fabric elegance with practical features for a window treatment that offers the best of both worlds. These shades also offer a unique blend of softness, texture, and light control, making them a perfect choice for achieving layered looks that evoke feelings of comfort.

Soft shades typically consist of Roman shades, drapes, sheers, and curtains. Our Hunter Douglas collection offers extensive options with these individual categories.

Combining Soft Shades with Curtains

If you want to enhance your bedroom, office, living room, or sunroom, layering with soft shades is an excellent choice. Layering with complementary curtain colors and fabric designs creates a beautiful, dramatic look at your windows. In contrast, the combination of two different fabrics provides even more light control, privacy, insulation, and even noise control.

Soft shades are a particularly excellent choice when it comes to pairing with curtains because they provide flexibility when it comes to light and privacy. Simply adjust both window treatments to your liking and enjoy your desired level of privacy, shade, or sunlight.

Combining Soft Shades with Shutters

Today, shutters can be custom-cut to fit a variety of unique window shapes. This means that you can layer soft shades with shutters in both wide windows, small windows, and even French doors.

When it comes to shutters, Roman shades elevate the timeless, elegant style of shutters with their uniform folds and rich fabrics. Want an opulent look at your windows? Combining Roman shades with your selection of shutters is an excellent choice. If you’re looking to add something to your French door, Roman shade options like Vignette® Roman Shades fit closely to your door for a layered look that offers style and performance.

Combining Soft Shades with Blinds

Hunter Douglas blinds are a household favorite window treatment for a reason. They provide easy light control with their adjustable slats, feature durable materials like wood and metal that can last for years, and can come in colors that complement multiple design schemes.

By combining soft shades with the harder material of lines, you can achieve a soft and structured look right at your window. The back-and-forth movement of soft shades will allow you to achieve your ideal level of privacy control, while the adjustable slides let you choose where you want sunlight to go in a room.
