You have many beautiful windows in your home and you want to decorate them all without detracting from the window, the view, and without blocking the light. A window valance can provide just the right look. You can change the entire atmosphere of a room by using curtain panels and valances to add a bit of glamour. There are many types of valences available which can be used as stand-alone decorations or combined with curtains or shutters to create a unique and stylish look. High quality sewn valances are a very classy and stylish.
Traditional formal valences are made of rich tapestries that often have thick fringing while modern designs are more informal and are lighter, made from a fabric like cotton or linen. Add a valance to your window and you create an elegant look.
Valance placement is as important to the look of your window as the style of the valence. Depending on how you choose to have the valence hung, you can even create a different looking window. If you want to lengthen your windows you can have the valance hung so that the bottom just covers the top of the window, thus creating the illusion of a longer window. To shorten long windows, or to accentuate the décor in a room with two story windows, the valance can be placed lower down and made longer to hide some of the glass. You can even add valences to sliding doors and patio doors. By hanging a curtain panel on a regular door and adding a valence, you have changed the entire look of that wall.
