Valances, designs, and tips

Tips when you make a decision to create valances for your windows:

  • Pick the right fabric for the style you select: for example, the heavy fabrics will not drape well.
  • Make sure the proportions are right: For example, when you have a short window make sure not to make the valance drop to low.
  • make sure your patterns are right: Large patterns will disappear when you are using the fabric for a tiny valance.
  • Make sure your colors are complementing the color scheme of the room.
  • Embellish: when you use embellishments, you know that it is an opportunity to be creative and different.
  • Be daring, create unique styles and create the WOW factor.

Good luck with your valance project

Window treatments by Gailani designs

A girl’s bed room gets an interesting valance!

When I get the request to design a child’s bed room, I get really excited!!!!

Recently I got a call from a Naperville resident to design a valance for his 10 year old daughter, he mentioned that his daughter is into sports and very athletic, she is not much into pinks and frills, she likes her window treatment clean and simple.

He also mentioned the need for shades to keep the sunlight out, to help his daughter to sleep in on weekends and Holidays.

The valance design consisted of four separate parts connected together with lace that resembles athletic shoe. Each part had a curved edge on the bottom of the valance to add that softness and femininity.

Two shades (Room darkening, Applause shades by Hunter Douglas) was provided to keep the sun away as well as providing saving on the energy bills, which came as unexpected bonus to the dad!
