Window Treatments are about more than just shades and curtains. Adding a valance to your windows is a lovely and simple way to dress up any room in the house. Valances can be crafted to match any décor or can be a pop of color in an otherwise monochromatic design scheme.
This stepped valance is simple and elegant. It matches the window panes and brings new charm in the bathroom by being modern in design but still soft enough in style to work with an antique-looking tub.
A box-pleated valance is a good way to hide window hardware while still matching curtains or similar window treatments. The fabric cover is the same as the curtains themselves so that the color scheme can be maintained, and the simple lines are perfect in an eclectic, modern living room.
It may look like curtains, but this scalloped design element is actually a valance. With this type of design, curtains aren’t even necessary – this valance adds beauty and elegance to the sunroom. Matching the ribbon trim to furniture pieces is an extra touch that makes this window look really stand out.
This is another box-pleated valance, but the rich and decorative fabric create a look that is very French Provincial. Ideal in a bedroom, like this example, or in a formal living or dining room, this type of valance brings luxury and sophistication without being overbearing or ostentatious.
