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 which are known as drapes in the USA are what we use to block out light and preying eyes from looking into our homes. Net curtains help control the ambiance and flow of natural light into a room and when chosen correctly can finish off the decor of a room beautifully. Also known as sheer curtains, they are made from translucent fabric too allow a lot of light into a room and also a basic level of UV protection while also maintaining maximum visibility through the curtains.
The best designs of contemporary curtains are a mix of the traditional and modern ideas of design and style. Roman blinds are a favourite contemporary design for curtains of many people, but owing to their high maintenance, these are usually avoided.
Most people are often torn between adding a lining to their curtains and leaving things as is. Giving your curtains a lining will protect the material for dirt on the window sill or from an open window. It also acts as means of insulation by keep excessive light and heat out. The flip side to this is that curtains without lining are much easier to manage and can be washed and dried much faster.
