Window Valance

A double window isolated on white (clipping path for outside of window and window panes)

 

A Window Valance, sometimes called a window top treatment is hung at the upper most portion of a window.    There are countless design options and valances work well when paired with blinds or curtains.  Valances and swags are a simple and easy way to add a finishing touch to any room.

I recommend you look online, magazines and Home Décor books for inspiration on the look and feel you want to create.  Once you have selected your valance, it’s time to measure the window and the length you want the valance to hang.  Valances require various fabric weights and I would ask the fabric store associate for assistance and recommendations based on your design.  You can email me a picture of your valance to assist in fabric yardage requirements and fabric weight recommendations.   Read my blog on local fabric stores for local resources.  Valances require a small amount of fabric and provide a tremendous decorative effect to your home.
