The layered look is definitely in style when it comes to window treatments. From drapery panels to shades, these items now come lined for a number of reasons. Layers help to keep warm air in during the winter and out during the summertime, and also help protect furniture and decor from fading. Aesthetically, lined window treatments offer a high-end look. "Layers provide energy-saving qualities and make the face fabric hang much nicer for a custom look," says Janet Barragan, senior vice president of window design at Curtainworks.
