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 apart from making the room look pretty and elegant also serve a few other purposes of providing privacy and keeping out light that helps in peaceful sleep even during the daytime. If one has the habit of sleeping for some hours during the day and a peaceful atmosphere is required during daytime, blinds should be installed along with curtains to keep out maximum sunlight. With the installation of blinds, the amount of light to be let in can be varied by keeping the blinds behind the curtain open or closed.
Casual swags over the rods are a design which can be played with in a lot of ways. These curtains do not require flamboyance. All you have to do is to choose bright colours and a fancy rod because it is going to show off the simplicity and beauty of the curtains. Such curtains go with contemporary furniture and contemporary lifestyle easily.
