Accenting Curtains With A Window Valance By Ken Morris

If you’re a person who loves to keep the window open so that you have the opportunity to gaze about as you wish, then you certainly don’t want to obstruct that view. For this person, a window valance is a perfect choice. You have a wide array of styles to choose from when finding that perfect valance. If you wish to have the view always, night and day, without interruption, you can use the valance alone, or else couple it with other window dressings such as curtains, drapes, blinds, shutters.

You can choose from both casual and formal window valances when conducting your interior design project. You can use a heavy tapestry type fabric or an airy light cotton type of material. If you like the free flowing look that’s less informal you can go that route, or else one that is more stiff and shaped to a form fit. The balloon valance looks like…well, a balloon. The way it is hung on the rod and pinched into sections make each section balloon out because of the way it is bundle up. The top is usually ruffled a bit. The areas of the valance that are puffy are usually stuffed with a tissue or old crumpled newspaper for some thicker fabrics where it won’t show through. For this style it’s recommended to use a lighter weight cotton material as well as something solid or with patterns and stripes. Another type of valance is the swag valance. The Swag Valance often is used with a lightweight fabric, but sometimes can work with a heavier type of fabric. This type of valance can either be short extend to the floor and pooled into a little pile. The swag is hoisted up by decorative brackets on either side, as the fabric is folded accordion style width ways, and then draped back across the brackets. If your window is wider you may have to support the center with a discreet bracket or pin because of the weight creating a swoop. You may like the look of the pleated valance. This is usually made up of a heavier type of fabric that will hold it’s shaped when formed. The fabric must be cut carefully so that each section between the pleated folds is equal in size. You may not want to tackle this type of style on your own, as you may want to leave this one up to a professional interior decorator or seamstress with experience. This type of valance is hung using a frame make from two by four board as well as an L bracket to create a type of shelf at the top of the window. You’ll then staple the fabric the shaped board, and then hang the board onto the brackets.

No matter what your experience level, just about anyone can create a window valance. Be sure to remember that window treatments should not be the focal point of the room but simply there to accent.

Curtains - What Do Yours Say About You? By Christopher Smith

Curtains as window coverings can add a special touch to a room and can also add a measure of privacy. Whatever you end up choosing, a window treatment of curtains can not only add some color or texture to a room, but can sometimes solve problems you may have with a window as well. There are many types of curtains to choose from. One of the most popular types is the box pleated curtain. These curtains are pre-gathered into pleats at the top of the curtain so that they always have that neat, tailored look. These can be a little more expensive than just a plain curtain, but their extra fullness can add a nice touch to your window treatment. Another popular type of curtain is a valance. It is a short piece of fabric that only decorates the top fourth of the window. They can come in many colors and patterns, and are usually used along with blinds so that there is still a way to close the window off and still get some privacy. Of course, curtains also play a more functional role in our home. Curtains can also be used to completely block out light for those who want their room very dark or for those who sleep during the day. These are known as blackout curtains and they have a special liner that does not allow any light to penetrate through the curtain itself. The only light you may need to worry about may just come around the edge or top of the curtain. Thermal curtains are a good option for saving energy. These window treatments keep the temperature more constant in the house, whether you want it warm or cool. This can save on energy costs since warm or cool air is not lost through the windows. Thermal curtains and blackout curtains as window coverings can also make good sources for noise blockage. If you live on a noisy street, or have to sleep during the day, sometimes outside noise can be pretty disturbing. These types of curtains can be really helpful to reduce the noise level as well as the light level. A simpler type of curtain is a cafe curtain, which you can usually find in a kitchen. These curtains are made of light material and often have decorative designs. These are the kinds of curtains you often imagine blowing in the wind in a kitchen. Whatever type of curtains as window coverings you need, finding one that you like and that goes with your decor can sometimes be a challenge. In addition, curtains for a larger window can cost quite a bit. However, curtains are often a longer term investment since you don't usually change them every year, so find the ones that you like, and hopefully you will soon have a lovely window area to enjoy. So remember not to base your buying decision strictly on the price. Curtains play not only an important part of your home decor but also say a lot about you. So what do your curtains say about you.
