Valances

Soft Valance top treatments add architectural interest and make the ceiling appear higher. Correctly positioned, they can fool the eye into thinking a window is larger than it really is, hide imperfections in a wall, or conceal the headrail of an under treatment. Additionally, a properly designed valance adds functionality by blocking light around the top edge and cornice of any window treatment; draperies, blinds, solar shades, and the list goes on.

Traditionally, valances were hung from beneath a wooden cornice. They were designed to conceal window hardware, but are used today even when there is no hardware to hide. A soft and flowing treatment, valances are hung from exposed or concealed rods or mounted on a board attached to a wall with L brackets.
               

A valance is a horizontal decorative fabric treatment used at the top of draperies, blinds, or solar shades to screen the hardware.
