Valances

Valance-Window “valances” also called window top treatments provide a certain beauty to any window. Valances can be used alone but are often hung over windows where curtains and drapes have been installed to better frame the windows. Many times they’re installed over kitchen sinks or in other areas where floor space may be limited or blocked; can be used to hide architectural flaws and windows placed at different heights; When using blinds, shades, and shutters valances are often used to soften the windows or to tie in the fabrics of corresponding furniture.

Box pleat: A flat, symmetrical fold of cloth sewn in place to create fullness, spaced evenly across the top of a drapery. The fabric can be folded back on either side of the pleat to show, for example, a contrasting fabric.
Swag Valances: The fabric of this valance hangs across brackets and drapes over the top of a window, with tails hanging down on each side.
Cornice: A rigid treatment that sometimes serves as a mask for holding attached stationary draperies or for hiding window hardware or even masking architectural flaws. The cornice is typically constructed of a chipboard-style wood or lightweight material over which some kind of padding is placed, then covered with a fabric of choice and finished with decorate trim or cording to cover any seams.
