Valances for Your Custom Window Treatments

Custom valances are a work of art with fabric that covers the uppermost portion of a window. Valances are versatile as they can be used on their own or in conjunction with shades, blinds and side panels.

In a window that gets little sunlight, like perhaps a kitchen, you can use only a pretty patterned valance so you can still let natural sunlight inside and be able to see well without the need for as much lighting in the room. Another great use of valances on their own is a bank of windows, such as bay or bow windows that don’t get a lot of sunlight. These specialty windows are an architectural feature of your home and deserve to be seen in all their glory as such.

Many homeowners and businesses decide to use blinds, shutters or shades in windows in a solid and neutral color and then they add a colorful valance to give the window a great deal of interest.

Choosing custom valances allows you to choose from a huge selection of styles to fit your exact specifications. Valance styles vary from a straight bottom hem that is straight across at the top of the window to beautiful accents with ascots, scallops, balloon styles, swags, scarf’s and so much more.

Valances of any style are also a wonderful area to add some exciting and dramatic trim. You can choose from thousands of styles of trim tape on the edges, fringes, box pleated ribbon or tape, buttons, frogs and rosettes and piping to give your custom draperies and valance choices a style that is all your own. A great idea is to repeat your choice of valance trim on tiebacks for drapery panels to pull your entire creation together seamlessly.
