The valance is a curtain that is used often to cover up rods or other hardware. There are various types of valances such as the waterfall valance, the ascot valance, or an Austrian valance. The type depends on the wanted appearance of the valance to be boxy or to drape across other hanging curtains. They are hung with an additional small rod to cover existing hanging curtains or hung with a bracket that is often attached to a more boxy style valance that surrounds an existing rod with drapes. Valances can also be hung alone above a window for decorative purposes.
Curtains are also used for increasing the aesthetic appeal of a room. An elegant curtain greatly increases the aesthetics of a room and gives an opulent look. On the contrary dirty or ill matched curtains give a room a gloomy look. When the window looks onto a street it is better to give thought to the underside of the curtain as the curtain can be seen from outside and will dictate the appearance of the house.
Curtains are available nowadays in a wide variety of fabrics. Lighter fabrics help keep the room light and airy and are preferred during hot weather while heavy draperies with lots of fabric are more suitable for colder weather. It is best to choose two kinds of curtains for the bedroom for both seasons of winter and summer and change them accordingly every year. Choosing transparent curtains makes the room look sleek and futuristic but they are not very functional as they cannot successfully keep out light and can be a hindrance during sleep.
