Interior designers and experienced home decorators know that a stylish, attractive window valance can remarkably transform plain, simple quarters into a festive, lively suite or a warm and cuddly corner, depending on what you desire.
A valance is simply a stylish piece of cloth that is specifically cut, decorated and designed to drape over your window to add superior style to your drapes or blinds with or without a cornice.
Depending on the theme and colors you choose, you can create fabulous styles for your valance using ordinary ropes, cords, hooks, or even an ordinary cylinder-type rod and some nails.
For even more style, try adding a small stud or two between each link after the rod is ready, this will add a bit of charm and elegance to your valance window treatment.

When a good theme and a fancy valance with the right colors and texture are selected, your master bedroom can become a honeymoon scene or on oasis of calm.
After you have chosen the appropriate cornice for your style and decor, selecting a valance to match and highlight the room takes very little effort.
A separate valance, however, will be more expensive and if closely inspected, it'll give the appearance of a custom designed shower curtain.
Any room can be spiced up or totally transformed when ribbons, bows, ties, studs, or just about anything is applied to your window valance.
Whether you are wrapping, tying, slip-knotting, curling, or swirling your valance, versatility and creativity are the names of the game.
