The transitional step between planning and doing is all about narrowing down your options and seeing how everything looks together. It can be hard to make decisions when choosing fabric, styles, and then executing practical considerations. But like putting together a puzzle, it can be fun and the end results can be very satisfying if you have someone at your side showing you the pieces. You only have to say, “Yes, I want that”!
We are here to help you make and execute your plans that will bring your dream rooms together with the right window treatments. There are so many styles to choose from. Listed below are just a few valances or cornice board possibilities for your home that we offer:
London Shades, Roman Shades, Balloon Shades, M Fay Valances, Box Pleasted Valances, and Cornice Boards, Swags, Lambrequins, and more.
Each style offers a different look. Originally, valances, cornices, and top treatments were more practical than decorative. They provided an added layer of insulation over drafty windows. As more fabrics became available, cornices, valances, and swags became stylish and contributed to the overall aesthetic appeal of complex window treatments. Top treatments are also used to hide hardware and imperfect curtain headers. Eventually they were used more and more for an architectural purposes such as installing a valance high on the wall above a poorly proportioned window to make the ceilings look much higher.
Call our store and let our decorator help you with the possibilities, such as extending a valance across a wall to expand the sense of window. Add a cornice over doors to change their proportions in a room. Add a valance to reinforce a shape of a window or just add that polished look to a room that will set it off!
Your first step to having a beautiful window is calling our store. Let our decorator sit down with you and help you choose fabric options. Then, she will make a personal home consultation and bring the fabric books to your home to help you match fabric choices to your décor. She can help you decided on styles. Is your room formal or is it informal? Each style of cornice board, swag, balloon shade, Roman Shade or valance can bring in a different look into a room. The fabrics that you choose also need to go with the style.
Common fabrics that we use on valances and top treatments are: Brocade, Cambric, Canvas, Chintz Cotton Duck, Crewl, and Damask, Gingham, Lace, Linen.
We have hundreds of fabric choices and many books of trim options to choose from. Let us help you make decorating as fun as putting together a puzzle.
