Creating A Unique Window Valance


Windows come in all shapes and sizes and sometimes offer a beautiful view. When it is important to let in the most light and not obstruct that perfect view, a window valance can be just the right touch. Window valances come in many different styles and can be used alone or with other window treatments such as drapes, sheers, blinds, or shutters. There are no-sew options as well as the carefully crafted sewn valances that have a real professional touch.

Types of Window Valances

Window valances can be formal or casual. They can be crafted of rich, heavy tapestry fabrics or light, airy cotton. They can be shaped and formed to have a stiff shaped look or be free flowing and informal. The following are some of the more commonly used window valance treatments and how they are made.

Balloon Valance: The balloon valance looks like its name. It normally has a gathered ruffle atop the rod and then the doubled up fabric is pinched in increments so that the areas between the pinches balloon out. Often the puffy areas can be stuffed with tissue paper or even old newspapers if the fabric is thick enough to hide the print. Lighter weight cottons are best for this window treatment. Patterns and stripes, as well as solids, work well to.

The Swag: A swag also looks like it sounds. A swag valance can be short or extend to the floor where it can even be pooled. The swag is held up by two decorative brackets. The width of the fabric is folded accordion style and then draped across the brackets. On wider windows, it may be necessary to support the centre of the swag with a hidden pin or bracket so that it doesnt swoop too much. Here sheer or very light weight fabrics work well and even some heavier fabrics.

Pleated Valance: A formally shaped valance is best made of heavier fabrics that can be formed and will hold their shape. Lighter weight fabrics may work if they are lined with a stiff enough lining. A pleated or scalloped valance needs to be carefully cut and lined so that when it is pleated and folded the underside fabric shows in equal increments. This style is probably best left to the professional decorator or experienced seamstress. The pleated valance can be hung using a frame made of 2x4 board and L-brackets to that a shelf is created at the top of the window. The fabric can then be stapled to the board once it is shaped, then hung onto the brackets.

How to Make the Most of the Window

Placement of the window valance is almost as important as how it is made and what type of material is used. If windows are short, then the valance can be hung high enough that the bottom just covers the top of the window.

To bring down the height of an extremely tall window the valance can be hung lower or made longer. In general, a valance should not hang more than one-third of the way down the window for the best aesthetics. Two-story windows can be cut in half by the window valance making it a part of the dcor of the room on the lower half. By dividing the rooms windows in this manner then the ceiling will not seem so high.

Window valances can be made by anyone with any amount of decorating experience. Some styles require little or no sewing. The important consideration is what type of design is going on in the rest of the room. Remember, window treatments should accent the room and not serve as the focal point.

    Easy to assemble....ideally you will need help with attaching the lid. Looks good and great size. Would definitely recommend this item . Delivered on time and kept informed whilst in transit.

    Sturdy design, stylish looking shoe storage. Even large sized shoes and high heels fit perfectly. We placed it outside our home under the porch. Let’s see how it is gonna cope with winter weather.

    Very pleased with our extra large sturdy and secure storage box. It arrived flat pack and assembly was required which I am told was straight forward with good, easy to follow instructions.

    Nice plant pot, really good colour and shape to it is brilliant. Two separate pieces so can weight the bottom and take the top part out for easy access and cleaning. I added bay trees to them and they look amazing within these. Very well priced.

    They are very well made for the price ... keep in mind that they are affordable and not made to be passed down through generations.. They dressed up my otherwise dull dining room chairs and table with the added bonus that we can take them out by the pool if so inclined. They are even comfortable! I am not expecting them to last forever but know that I will get my money's worth out of them.
