Most window coverings work best when they are layered on the windows and this makes layering a must whether is summer, spring, winter, or fall. One of the trendy layering options is where sheers are layered over window blinds combining the simplicity of the latter with the softness, motion, and texture synonymous with sheer curtains. The layers create a stunning presentation that exudes finesse and flexibility on the windows making them stand out. The combination allows ample light control and complete privacy day or night.

4. Floor To Ceiling Curtains
Short curtains have become dated and the floor to ceiling variants are the in thing.

Most of the floor to ceiling curtains are custom-made to meet the height of the customer’s windows since people have become creative with the size and height of windows in their homes.
They should be hung as high as possible to give an added vertical extension while making the windows look larger, and the room more spacious. Given what they can do, it should not be a surprise that they are a hot pick for spring. With the floor to ceiling curtains, you get full control of the amount of light you allow in and enjoy some privacy. The curtains also provide thermal insulation during the warm months by keeping the hot air out and preserving the cool indoor air.
5. White Plantation Shutters
It is hard to go wrong with white shutters; they are an ideal option if you are in doubt about your choices. The shutters look good indoors and make the windows stand out from the outside especially when placed across the front windows. They are what you may want to get if you are looking for something that adds some kerb appeal to your home’s façade.
The plantation shutters also aid in noise insulation keeping the traffic noise outside. Remember to work with custom-made plantation shutters, preferably those that are handcrafted according to the dimensions of your windows; these will have a snug fit and give an attractive presentation.
6. Two Blinds In One
What you get with these is dual functionality. The curtains are dual roller blinds with a double bracket system hold two fabrics. One of the fabrics is meant to block out the light and the warm air while the other is a sheer to allow you some light and a view of the outdoor without compromising your privacy.
The independent control of each blind gives you the freedom to enjoy the outside view while allowing a soft diffused light into the house and still maintain your privacy. At night, you can put both fabrics to completely cover the window. Given such qualities, the double roller blinds are among the top options of window covering for some households this spring.
