CUSTOM VALANCES NYC
Valances drape effortlessly over the top of draperies, shades, and blinds, adding color and distinction to existing window treatments. They hide gawky curtain rails, replacing them with soft fabric, carefully selected to match underlying curtains and room decor. They lower the height of a tall ceiling and create a more intimate feel in any room. Stylish customized valances are made to the window’s exact proportions. You can specify their vertical height, fabric type, print pattern, print color, and other qualities including trim options, pleats, if any, and style (swag, jabots, trumpets, etc.). Valances add elegance and beauty to any window, helping to blend the chosen coverings with overall room décor. The experienced window decorators at Royal Window Treatments are eager to work with you and help you create a custom valance that will give you personal satisfaction and pleasure for many years to come.
