Selecting Window Treatments
Windows are one of the most significant design elements a home- not just in grand rooms with soaring floor-to- ceiling windows, but in every room no matter how big an spaciousor small and unassuming the space. Windows are the openings to the world, letting natural light in while providing access to a beautiful view, a glimpse of moonlight, or a wonderful breeze,But deciding how to decorate a window can be a daunting task, especially since there are so many questions to consider. What window? How much will it all cost?. Which fabric should you choose-print-solid-texture, sheer?.And most important, will you be happy with the window treatments you select?
No worries.That is the simple answer to all of the questions above. The journey begins with knowledge,and we will look at some options to make the process easier.Once the basic questions are answered,the fun of selecting the right window treatment styles to reflect your personality and lifestyle begins.
A Look At Valances
The Balloon Valance gets its name from the fact that it has a full, puffed-out shape. Alone, it imparts a soft, somewhat feminine look to a window. In appearance, the basic balloon valance looks like a shorter version of the balloon shade, but it does not move up and down.Used with floor-length draperies, the effect is more formal. When designed with side-tails, it has a tailored appearance.
The Puff Valance is a self-lined valance that is open at the ends so the two layers can be pulled apart to form a pouf.
The Cloud Valance is similar to the balloon valance, but with more fullness at the lower edge of the scallops.
The Austrian Valance is shirred up into opulent scallops that fall along most of its length.
The Pleated Valancehas a tailored, dressmaker look. Any of the headings commonly used for drapery can be applied to a pleated valance. The simplest version is
The Box-Pleat Valance, which looks like a schoolgirl’s crisply pleated skirt. Other versions, such as The Triple-Pleat and Butterfly PleatValances, are pleated at the top, and then released into soft folds. For the Pleated and Gathered Valance. the area below the pleats is gathered up so that a series of swag-and-jabot-like shapes are formed. The Carriage-Pleat Valance, consists of groupings of narrow, rounded pleats, spaced at intervals across the valance. , On The Bell-Pleat Valance, the unpressed pleats form soft cones of fabric.
