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.
The history of curtains goes right back to the 1700's when they were made out of cotton wool or silk, silk being the most expensive and exquisite. In the middle ages fabric was very expensive so only the very rich or upper classes would have them. It wasn't until the industrial era and the development of the textile trade that made fabric prices more affordable to most people. Once the glass industry was in full swing and homes were installed with glass windows, this again helped with the textile industry and brought the prices of curtains down.
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.
Generally house hold curtains as well as giving your home privacy also help in sleeping as they stop light coming in. They come in many different shapes and sizes, colours patterns and material. Getting the right type of curtains for rooms can complete the overall appearance of a room.
