Swags are treatments that are scalloped in shape. Several swags might be used on a single window at the top of hanging Cascades or Jabots that are long drapes with angled hems that hang on each side of the window.
There are several ways in which you can use your curtains. For instance - give your windows more height by placing the curtain rod a few inches above its designated spot. Buy a few extra meters of curtain material and let it trail a bit on the floor. It adds to the illusion of greater height. If you would like to bring in the sunshine, add around 45 cms more to the length of the curtain on each side of your rod. This way you can pull aside the curtain without covering the panes. This is a great way to make small windows look much bigger than they are.
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.
So you have finally decided to take down those curtains and give your home a whole new look. Even the most amateur of interior designers will be able to tell you how much of a difference a good set of curtains can do to your home. There are so many materials used for curtains and you will need to settle on one that best suits your décor and home.
