Cloud Valance

A window valance is a type of window treatment that serves to cover the upper part of the window. Valances may be hung by themselves or they may be combined with curtains, blinds or shades.

Designer valances were something of a craze some time back as these added a certain grace and decorum to the room. On the practical side, beautiful designer valances also serve to hide aging window rods or window tops that are damaged or crumbling with age. They are a common feature in large sun-facing rooms.

How to choose designer valances for your room:

To be attractive, window valances must match the style and color of the rest of the room. As valances are by nature rather heavy and ostentatious, they must be paired with a decor that is subdued and simple. Heavy window treatments in a room that already has too many stylistic elements is a fashion faux pas. If you already have a room that is stylish, then, it would be better to use simple designer valances that are subdued in color and muted in their design.

For designer valances to work their magic, it is necessary that the window occupies a place of pride in the decor of the room. For example, small decorative windows, bay windows and French windows are built so they can become the focus of attention. Dressing up such windows with the right designer valance and combining this with an equally good curtain or blind is a great way of giving visual appeal to the room.

Designer valances are great for a children’s room, particularly if the decor follows a certain theme. For instance, a room that looks like a sky can do with cloud valances. Kitchens and bathrooms too can get a facelift if you fit them with excellent designer valances. However, care must be taken to keep the design simple since any window treatments in kitchens and bathrooms are likely to attract dirt, grime and moisture.

One of the most important things to keep in mind when ordering designer valances is the measurement. Before you order, you will have to take the right measurement since these valances are made for your individual use. Therefore, they cannot be returned to the manufacturer. In case of doubts, it is advisable to approach an expert for measuring the valance.

The good thing about valances is that they can be combined with any kind of window treatment to give some additional zing to a room. They are a wonderful way of dressing up a room that is used for formal entertainment as they impart stateliness to the room. When selected carefully, they can also add an element of fun and cheerfulness. The irregular shapes, intricate designs and the color combinations can turn any room into a stunner.
