VALANCES

VALANCES & CORNICE BOARDS

Valances come in every size and shape imaginable!! The options are almost endless when it comes to these more subtle window treatments. While valances are often incorporated with shades, they can be stand-alone treatments as well. Most valances consist of fabric suspended from a board over a window or doorway. This fabric can be flat, pleated, gathered, tucked, etc. to give the desired look. As with most window treatments, trim can be applied in several ways to highlight the design of the valance.

WHAT TYPE OF VALANCE DO YOU WANT FOR YOUR WINDOW?

  • When choosing the style of valance that is appropriate for the room, think of the style, the size, the height, and also the feel of your chosen fabric.

 

  • Stiffer fabrics will do well in the more structured valances and softer more flowing fabrics will drape better for valance styles that have more volume.

VALANCE SELECTION GUIDE, STYLES & TYPES

VALANCE WITH PLEATS

Structured Valances like the tailored valance with pleats add a very subtle touch while other valances may add a more dramatic effect to the window treatment as well as the room’s ambiance. What you choose all depends on the look you are trying to achieve.

We offer custom valance options featuring a central pleat or multiple pleats

TAILORED WITH MULTIPLE PLEATS

When designing a tailored valance, flatter fabrics will lend themselves better to the crispness of the design than a textured fabric like velvet.

Think about any design motif that is present in the fabric and design your pleats around that.

Play around with the size of your pleats. You may like an asymmetrical look or pleats that either increase or decrease in width.

GROMMET WINDOW TREATMENTS

Valances can be made to mimic shade styles by the use of pleating, swag and other soft fabric manipulation. Most of our Faux Valances will be priced by the linear foot. Overall cost and possibilities will depend on the size, shape and complexity of the desired result.

BELL, SWAG & JABOT VALENCE

Bell:

Like a Jabot, is a good way to break up deep luxurious folds that form into soft swags.

 

Jabot:

Typically falling on the outside of horizontal valance treatments or in the middle of a bank of windows, are long vertical folds that are tapered bias to a side.

 

Swags:

Draped or pleated fabric that can be oriented either horizontally or vertically. Swags can live, visually resolved, by themselves or highlighted with bells and jabots.

DRAPED VALENCE

Draped Valance
