Some Thoughts On Headers In Window Treatments

The fabric that extends above the rod pocket is called the “header” and just utilizing this simple feature can alter the feel and perception of a window treatment. The standard thinking is, the taller the header, the more feminine and romantic the look will be. Wide headers, which are three inches or more tall, can flop forward randomly if lined in a contrasting fabric, adding design interest to the top edge. Narrow one inch or two inch headers, give valances a less fussy and more classic appearance than a wide header. These work well if the rod pocket is sized for a one inch wide curtain rod or pole. The absence of a header gives a sophisticated and more streamlined look, especially if the valance features an ample rod pocket for a two inch wide curtain rod or pole.
