Window valances are a great way to add style and elegance to your windows. They are versatile, easy to install, and can be customized to fit any decor style. In this blog post, we will explore 4 of the most popular valance styles and how to choose the right one for your home.
Faux Roman Shade Valance:
This window valance style is designed to look like a Roman shade but is stationary and does not move up and down. It is a great option for those who want the look of a Roman shade but do not need the functionality and are on a budget. Faux Roman shade valances are simple and popular.
This window valance style is designed to create a soft, romantic look in any room. Balloon valances are made of soft, billowy fabric that is gathered at the top and bottom to create a balloon-like effect. Keep in mind, however, that balloon valances have a lot of volume and protrude out because of this volume and weight. It may not be the best solution in rooms with very little space to move about.
This window valance style is designed to create a modern look in any room. Scalloped valances that are custom-made can be created in scallops that follow and outline the specific design of each fabric. Take a look at this bird toile fabric with paisleys. The window valance shape meticulously follows the shape of each of the medallions found in the fabric.
Box Pleat Valance:
This window valance style is designed to create a tailored, sophisticated look in any room. Box pleat valances are made of crisp, clean fabric that is pleated to create a box-like effect. They are available in a variety of fabrics and are typically made mounted on a board. These window valances have pleats on each corner of the wooden board (called kick pleats), with the rest of the fabric neatly wrapping around towards the wall. Adding coordinating drapery is common with box pleat valances.
Which One to Choose?
When choosing a valance style, it is important to consider the overall decor style of your home. If you have a modern home, a faux Roman shade valance or box pleat valance may be the best option. If you have a traditional home, a balloon valance or scalloped valance may be the best option. It is also important to consider the color and pattern of the fabric. Choose a fabric that complements the colors and patterns in your room.
