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.
Contemporary curtain designs give the look of a room in a house or office a completely new dimension, in terms of style. Traditional curtains constrict the imagination and creativity in the interior design of any place, because one is bound to choose only traditional and antique decor and furnishings. Contemporary designs of curtains give you the freedom to explore and discover all possibilities of decorating your place in a modern and stylish way.
More than just a simple piece of cloth, curtains today are used as beautiful window treatments. They not only prevent sunlight and protect against drafts, but they also improve the appearance of a room and add a special touch to its design. Used since the ancient of times, curtains have their very own history, with various fabrics and patterns invented all over the world. Generally speaking, we prefer to have curtains on our windows in order to sleep better at night, for privacy reasons and also due to their insulation qualities.
They come in many different colours and patterns but are mainly maid of wool as they are semi transparent. Jardinière curtains are also full length curtains but they have an arch at the end. These are great for keep the privacy but also allowing you to look out from the inside. Also they allow for sun to shine through into your room. Cafe curtains are slightly different in that they only have half of the window, the bottom half. Found commonly in quaint homes and cafes in France, these are great for kitchens where your window leads onto the back garden.
