What is a Window Valance?

A valance “tops off” your window treatments. It’s a custom fabric accent that sits at the top of the window. Valances can look casual or formal, depending on the fabric used and typically will match or complement your window treatment and the decor of your room. Besides adding visual interest to the window they also serve the purpose of hiding hardware and make for a cleaner look at the window.
