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.
Let's talk about sheer curtains, as they are amongst the most popular. Semitransparent, these curtains are preferred in rooms in which light is desired to enter. The materials used for the creation of such curtains include polyester textile voile, cotton lace and similar fabrics. You can expect sheer curtains to provide very little or absolutely no protection against direct sunlight. However, they are considered to be pretty useful by those who desire protection against UV harmful rays. Due to the fineness of the fabric, the visibility won't be affected at all. Sheer curtains are often used for privacy reasons.
In curtain terms, swag refers to the manner in which curtains are pulled to the sides of windows, about midway in their length. A draw back tie is looped around the curtains and is attached to a hook on the window frame, thus securing the curtains with the tops joined and the bottoms hanging freely. When released, the curtains close completely.
