Overcoming design challenges with custom valances.
Here are some struggles that we have come across when helping our clients design the perfect window coverings for their homes. They’ve found valances to be the perfect fix, and we think you will too!
Covering Unsightly Hardware
Sometimes blinds were selected for a functional reason (privacy, and light control) and the hardware of those blinds are unsightly. A valance will be ideal in this case to cover up what needs to be covered.
Using Custom Valances When Designing for Smaller Rooms
When rooms are too small, and full draperies are overpowering, valances can provide the warmth, texture and color to the room just as much as a pair of drapes, without overwhelming the room.
Help Maximize a Beautiful View
If the view can not be compromised, and full draperies are obstructive, a well designed valance will give maximum exposure, without taking away the beautiful view.
Use Sunlight To Your Full Advantage
When there is a need for natural light in rooms for a special function, such as craft or sewing rooms, sun rooms and kitchens, valences liven the windows without blocking the sunlight.
The Perfect Solution for Areas With Higher Dirt and Stain Potential
If the window is by an area where draperies can be easily soiled like over a sink window in the kitchen, or in a bath room by the jacuzzi, having a valance to dress those windows up is much more practical than draperies that drop down.
Unify The Look Of Your Space
When having two windows on one wall with different sizes, designing valances to help unify the look is a smart idea.
Valances Can Do The Trick!
So as you can see valances are the perfect window treatment to solve a variety of design challenges. Whether you need to cover up unsightly hardware, want to add warmth and color to a small room, or want to maximize a beautiful view, valances can do the trick!
