Whether you would like to cover your window treatment’s hardware such as a drapery rod for clean lines, or simply distinguish your room’s windows with a bit of fabric flair, valances have gone in and out of vogue but remain a useful interior design aid. That’s why Suffolk County’s choice for fine window coverings, Homestead, offers you a wide variety of fabric and design options for your valances in your kitchen, living room, or wherever your windows need to be topped with something remarkable.
Be they traditional like many Waverly valances, a favorite Homestead offering, or the elegant classicism of scarf valances, these versatile window treatments can make the difference in your décor when used properly. Below is a brief primer on the ways we can use valances to enhance your windows’ appeal.
Valances only cover up to the top third of your window and don’t necessarily have accompanying draperies.
When your room needs just a touch of shape, color, or pattern to attract the eye, window valances do the trick without necessarily using a lot of fabric. This might be your best option if the windows are large, already the room’s focal points.
If a smaller valance better suits your window, consider the lightweight look of swag.
Sometimes your décor aspirations otherwise don’t fit the space you have been given. Valances can effectively bridge that gap. For example, because valances naturally draw your attention upward, they can compensate for a low ceiling, avoiding a cramped appearance in the room.
Pole-mounted valances work well for rooms with a traditional motif while box-mounted ones complement contemporary themes.
Don’t forget that Homestead offers you free in-home design consultations to make sure your new valances will fit your windows perfectly, giving you many years of service and aesthetic appeal.
