A Stylish Option for Your Windows.

 

 

 

Window valances are a stylish window treatment option, but it’s important to find one that fits your style. They are also a cost effective way to add interest to an otherwise plain and boring window. Valances come in an abundance of styles such as balloon valances, swag valances and box pleat valances. Adding a window valance as part of your window treatment opens up a wealth of opportunities for expressing your creativity. A valance can add elegance and sophistication to a window, or it can add whimsy and artistic flair to the entire room. You can make your own at home for a fraction of the cost of new and they will give your windows that custom-made look.

There are times when you just want to do something out of the ordinary when decorating a room. You can add a wooden valance to your window and paint it or enhance it in a most unusual way. One example would be to attach dried grass to it for an island themed room. Or, you could paint it in a unique manner. Adhering collectibles such as buttons, shells, or various other objects to the wooden valance would certainly personalize the valance.

Things you will need:
Measuring tape
Fabric
Thread
Curtain hardware from Kirsch Drapery Hardware

Measure the width of the window to determine how much fabric you will need. How long you want the valance to hang from the top? 10 inches is usually recommended. Add 2 inches at the top for the rod pocket and 1 inch to the bottom and sides for the hem. For a box pleated valance, you will need to add an additional 2 inches for each pleat.
Turn the top of the fabric under 1 1/2 inches and pin along the fold line. Sew along the folded edge to create a 1 1/2-inch rod pocket. Create a 1 inch hem at the bottom and sides. If you are adding trim to the bottom of the valance, now is the time to sew it on as well.
Use a power drill to hang the hardware for the rod. Kirsch’s LockSeam curtain rods are the strongest and most versatile rods on the market today. They are enclosed on the back side to provide added strength and durability by preventing sagging, twisting and bending with out  exposed edges to snag the  curtains. Lockseam curtain rods are available in single, double, extended and even triple curtain rod configurations.
The rod should be installed on the outside of the window frame for best results. Thread the rod through the pocket at the top of the valance and hang it on the window. Done!

Stark, Elegant Style with Bamboo Curtain Rods

 

 

Bamboo is one of the most Eco-friendly building materials there is—it’s sturdy and solid, yet it grows extremely fast and is therefore rapidly renewable. It has a stark, elegant look that will likely blend into the decor of your home. Menagerie Bamboo Curtain Rods and Drapery Hardware is a bamboo drapery hardware collection offering many styles to coordinate with your individual needs. Please note that all of the bamboo poles are independently created by Mother Nature. No two poles are identical. The organic pits, discolorations, and pole “curves” are natural enhancements to the bamboo designs, and are not considered defects. All Menagerie Bamboo Drapery Hardware accessories are cast in resin and stained to match the real bamboo curtain rods.
Bring the island flavor of bamboo to your home or beach house with Menagerie bamboo drapery rods and accessories including bamboo curtain rings, curtain rods and brackets. Menagerie has a 2″ bamboo drapery hardware collection offering many styles for you to integrate into your home.
Curtain rods are a great place to integrate this wood into your home. Bamboo curtain rods come in a variety of colors and are visually lighter than most wood and iron rods creating a laid-back appeal that’s perfect not only for a coastal home but for any room where you’re craving an injection of seaside style. Pair a bamboo rod with a set of light sheers. The color and weight of the rod keeps the sheers from feeling like they’re floating away, while at the same time the sheer fabric makes the rods seem less heavy. One of the best things about bamboo is that it naturally compliments a pattern. Geometric prints or bold prints work well with bamboo because the simplicity of rods doesn’t allow it to compete.
As a high end designer drapery hardware system, Menagerie Bamboo is completely customizable for your taste and décor. The Bamboo Collection offers versatility for a contemporary and tropical décor. Menagerie bamboo drapery hardware items are in stock and usually ship in about 2 business days direct from the manufacturer.
