The use of curtains remains widely popular for decorative and practical purposes. The basic definition of a curtain is simply a piece of material suspended from above used as a covering or screen that is often one of a pair. The more practical uses of curtains include blocking any type of light, blocking drafts around windows or doors, or blocking water. There is also a stage curtain that goes up when a show begins and this covers the stage during breaks or at the ending of a show. Many people spend a great deal of time to choose curtains that serve either practical and decorative purposes or decorative purposes alone.
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.
