Benefits of Window Valances

April 21, 2022

In this blog entry, the expert Florida shades and blinds installation team here at Design Your Blind will detail the aesthetic and functional details of window valances.

What exactly is a valance?

Window valances are window treatments that are composed of a single piece of fabric across the top of a window. It’s usually held up on a curtain rod, and helps to conceal the upper part of a window and its hardware. Window valances add a great pop of color to bland walls, and can soften hard angles in a range of settings. Window valances can be used on a single window, or on many – and can stand alone as a single window treatment, or paired with others – and come in a wide range of styles, textures, and shapes.

Main Benefits of Window Valances

  1. Window valances are incredibly cost effective – being both very attractive, and very affordable. Window valances look great on their own – but really offer an aesthetic flair that pops when paired with attractive drapes, blinds, or curtains. Valences even help you significantly lower your energy bills as you can design them to help adjust light levels in your interiors to your very specific needs and tastes.
  2. Window valances serve to significantly lower the amount of light and sound that enters your property, increasing your privacy. Custom valances can be created, allowing you to cover any window – regardless of its shape – that you’d like to keep private. When valances are closed, nobody can see through your windows, which is a benefit not always given by every type of window treatment. Window valances can even help reduce noise pollution, allowing you to muffle, or completely silence, outdoor noises when you close them.
