Valances Buying Guide

Create a polished, designer-look window treatment, make a window look taller, or hide unsightly hardware with an elegant valance. Valances work well over curtains, blinds, or shades, or simply on their own.

Types of Valances

Types of Valances

Valances run horizontally across the top of a window. Variations emphasize shape, style, coverage, and soft or hard construction.

Scarf Valance

If you're looking for simple yet elegant treatment, drape a sheer scarf or two gracefully over a curtain rod. Switch to a slightly heavier fabric, perhaps gently pleated, for a more formal look. Scarf valances are easy to install -- just use a few pins to keep the fabric in place.

Swag Valance

These traditional valances often drape across the top and down both sides of a window. Swags are like scarves but use heavier fabric, sometimes arranged with a peak in the center and "tails" on the ends. Fabric choice -- from casual muslin to formal velvet -- and lined or unlined construction determines the decorative effect.

Tailored Valance

Other valance styles showcase designer details. Crenellated valances feature a wavy or notched bottom edge. A Winchester valance has a scalloped bottom trimmed with fringe or beads. An ascot valance comes to a dramatic tasseled point, and a box-pleated valance sets a formal tone. A lambrequin is shaped from stiffened fabric to frame the sides of a window, sometimes to the floor.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Valances are decorative rather than functional, so they can be used alone on windows where privacy is not an issue. Otherwise, a valance easily pairs with blinds, shades, or shutters. As with other window treatments, valances are sold ready-made, or they can be custom-fabricated.

Window Architecture

A cornice mounted close to the ceiling can hide drapery hardware and make the window and ceiling look taller. Because of its structure, a cornice works well with a soft curtain or a fabric shade. Valances are visually helpful in rooms that lack interesting architecture or moldings.

Decorating Style

Look for valance styles and materials that harmonize with other window treatments and your overall room decor. For example, in a sleek, modern space, simpler is better. If you're installing a valance over curtains or draperies, all elements need not match, but they should have similar styles and color tones.
