Your windows are designed to be eye-catching inside and out. Sometimes, they need a little bit of help with the assistance of some accessories to really light up a room and pull their weight decor-wise. That’s why – along with curtains – valences can be a great way to bring your window decorating game up a notch. Here are four reasons to add valences to your windows.
They Add Dimension to Your Room
When designing a room, it’s important to not just think of a room in terms of length and width. Things like furniture, lighting, and texture can all add or remove eye-catching depth that can enhance various features in your room. Of course, the last thing you want is to end up with a flat looking room that doesn’t demand anything from the eye. Some rooms (such as the kitchen and laundry), frankly, could use a little bit of help in being less flat. A good valence can provide this. Valance curtains, specifically, are designed to protrude out from the window area, creating a 3D effect to any space.
They Add Color and Texture
With certain rooms, the little bit of color that you get from furniture or curtains may not be enough (depending on your specific taste, of course). After all, you don’t have to paint every room, and it might be hard to find certain interior design elements that will match perfectly with each other. That’s why when adding a cosmetic element such as window valances, you want to allow yourself a bit of creative freedom and allow yourself to play around with style a bit more than usual.
They Compliment Other Design Elements
You may need something to really pull that yellow couch and red curtains into one cohesive statement. That’s why valences come in such a variety of colors and patterns. No matter the season or your personal whim, you’ll be able to find something that matches your existing decor pieces. You’ll no longer have to worry about a room feeling empty because you couldn’t find a matching pastel lavender for a spring look. Adding valences to often neglected rooms like your kitchen can dig up a whole new personality.
They Reshape Your Window
Who says that windows have to be the same three or four shapes as everyone else in your neighborhood. Because the actual fabric that accompanies valence curtains are available in a variety of shapes, you’ll have your pick. Whether you’re looking for pointed and eye-catching or rounded and elegant, there’s bound to be something for you.
Tip: When trying to determine the kind of window valances that you want for your home, look at the shape of other elements of your room, and think about what would go best with them.
