Living Room, Bathroom and Kitchen Valances

Soften the look of any window in your home. Valances lend splashes of color to the upper part of your panes. Shop an array of valance styles, and find the perfect topper for your window. Our selection of valance window treatments includes swag, gathered and tailored designs. Swag valances drape beautifully and include standard swag, fan, scarf, empire and waterfall valances. Gathered valances have a pleasing gathered appearance and include standard gathered, tuck, Bradford and blouson valances. Tailored valances have a neat, clean look and include standard tailored valances and banner valances. Browse a wealth of valance ideas, from calming coastal stripes to punchy floral prints.

You can change the atmosphere of a room completely with the right topper. Waterfall valances weave a regal flourish along your curtain rod, while swags accent a sunlit pane for a warm, inviting look. Only covering the top portion of windows, these treatments won't block the view or natural lighting. Plus, they provide just the right amount of privacy. For a more polished look, coordinate your drapes with window valances. A linen-colored shade layered beneath your valance adds privacy without distracting from the main attraction.

How to Measure for Valances

So how many valances do you need for your window? First, measure the width of your window, including any outside trim in your measurements. Round the window width to the nearest inch, then multiply it by 2 (or 3, for added fullness!) Finally, divide this new number by the width of the valances. Round to the nearest whole number. This should tell you how many valances you need to purchase.

In the kitchen, valances can add a homey, country feel. Accented with fruit patterns or even delicate lacework, your panes will play up your surroundings. Semi sheer toppers are ideal for bathrooms, especially those with a beachy vibe. Finally, go for nautical stripes, embroidered butterflies or dainty magnolias, if your living room could use a dash of pizazz.

Spruce up Windows with Curtain Valances

Valances for windows are a godsend for decorators tackling high-traffic rooms, like kitchens or bathrooms. Curtains that skim or puddle on the floor are not very practical for these areas. Elegant valances, on the other hand, are never underfoot yet still exude grace and style. Browse our rich assortment of colors, from light blue to sophisticated black. For an even more graceful appearance, choose from rod pocket valances and lace valances. Or, go for tie-up valances when you need an adjustable window treatment.

Choose matching curtains and valances to complete your look. Our sheer valances pair well with sheer curtains, tiers or drapes. For a graphic punch, shop our striped valances, floral valances and tropical valances. Drapery accompanied by these lovely window toppers will look quite polished indeed!
