Artistic Window Frames – Fabric Valances

The Exotic Fabric Valances to Enhance the Window Coverings.

A window valance is a type of window treatment that covers the uppermost part of the window and can be hung alone or paired with window blinds, or curtains. They are the most popular choice to conceal drapery hardware. This, however, is the very technical explanation of these beautiful decorative pieces. Fabric valances find their origin in the Victorian Age and were used to frame the window better. In these contemporary times, they could be installed over kitchen sinks, to hide architectural flaws, or for windows placed at different heights to make for a more even look. Valances are often used to soften the windows or to tie in with the upholstery used for decorative purposes. The variety of fabric available like jacquard, silk, faux silk, poly cot, linen, satin, velvet and polyester invite natural splendor to your window frames. Whatever be the shape, size and look of your window, the valances in styles like scalloped, layered, arched, gathered, or grommet top bring unsurpassable elegance.

I wouldn’t have got to know the intricate details of valances till last week, when my friend in Los Angeles mailed me an extensive write-up. She wrote to me about the perils of trying to keep up with the Jones’ in La-La Land or better known as the global city. “It is the home to Hollywood –and the epicenter of ethnic diversity. Living in L.A comes with some responsibility – to keep up your style quotient!”, wrote my friend Emma. Tired with the monotony-struck modest decor she decided to bring in small changes without it taking too heavy a toll on her wallet. She chose to get the CROWN Board Mounted Elegance Drapery Valances from Zebrablinds.

With extra lining or fringes or by adding extra cords you can only escalate their eye-catching beauty.” Moreover, she was elated about the easy maintenance involved – feather dusting, since her OCD makes her way too particular about maintaining her interiors. All in all she was happy about finally getting a much-needed change, though small, that worked miracles for her decor.
