From the renaissance era to your home, valances (sometimes called “swags”) have maintained their popularity across all cultures and classes thanks to a variety of designs and materials that are artistically arranged in a way that can complement almost any home. In this age of mass production and accessible customization, you can find quality swag valance curtains in almost any cut, size, color, pattern, and texture.
Whether you want classic and delicate or a bold statement maker, there’s something for you. To help out the inexperienced, here’s a list of some common styles of these much-loved window treatments and where they may be able to fit in your home.
A classic looking and relatively simple design, this curtain has a soft, rounded bottom with the top being bunched into an artistic looking “scalloped” look above the rod.
Where to place: this is a casual, relaxed look that can be implemented into almost any bedroom.
This particular kind of swag valance, as its name implies, is a single piece of oftentimes elegant, lightweight fabric that’s draped across the entire window. While they may be patterned, they are more often than not one solid color and can be displayed asymmetrically if one so chooses.
Where to place: This is a piece that’s built to make a strong impression. Try placing it in a more public-facing room with plenty of light, such as a kitchen.
This particular style, while quite visually striking, isn’t necessarily the easiest to adjust. Unlike many other valances, you can “tie” it up or down to your preferred height with two ribbons that are sewn into the top. It often comes in a sheer material that lets in a lot of light.
Where to place: Another valance that’s designed to catch the eye (and may be a little bit more high maintenance than others), you should consider putting roll up swags on a smaller window that’s located in a room with a lot of foot traffic.
This bouffant, striking style of valence is made to invoke a sense of pastoral nostalgia in any home it graces. As the name implies, the end-to-end bunched up fabric can create a fluffy, airly look in these swag valance curtains.
Where to place: Anywhere and everywhere, as long as the rest of your decor can support this unique look.
Classic, versatile, and a favorite of homes all around the country, this type of swag valance maintains a simple style that’s easy to install and maintain. Because of their simple design, they are easy to create and install. For anyone looking for a bit of flair with this particular swag curtain, there are many designs available in a “box pleated” cut.
