Window Top Treatment Styles:
Relatively small in size, valances, cornices and swags pack a big decorative punch. Use them alone or combine them with shades or blinds for privacy and light control. Pair them with operative or fixed draperies for a more luxurious look.
Originally designed to conceal window treatment hardware, valances are now used to visually unite windows and doors of different shapes and sizes and to enhance the decor of a room.
The style of a valance is also important. Gathered styles have a romantic or casual appearance. Flat panels look tailored and neat and require the least amount of fabric. Formally swagged, draped, or box pleated versions look good in formal or traditional interiors. Choose the look that best fits your décor.
