When ordering your valance, we suggest planning to mount your valance approximately 1-1/2" above window opening or undertreatment. Take width measurement of opening, or outside mounted treatment that the valance will be mounted over, and add at least 1" width to provide operating clearance. When mounting over another window treatment, order clearance depth at least 1" greater than the "flush mount depth" of the undertreatment.
For your custom Valance you may select to mount this product inside your window frame or outside beyond your window frame. When selecting an inside mount valance mounting space will be the same as the clearance depth you specify on your order. For an outside mounted valance you can mount this valance on a wall or moulding around your window. Inside and outside mount valances require flat mounting space.
Clearance depth refers to the amount of space between your wall and the back of your valance. This information is important when ordering valances to be mounted over other window treatments or to clear moulding. The available clearance varies by valance style. See below for a breakdown of clearance availability by style.
A variety of decorative trims are available to further customize many of our Fabric Top Treatments. Choose from glass beads or ribbon banding, and many other styles. Our trim offerings have been carefully selected to match any of our fabrics from our fabric collection.
Your valance come standard with cotton/polyester Privacy Lining which offers both insulation and substantial privacy or choose our 3-ply Blackout Lining for maximum privacy. Please note that there may be some light spots where the shade and lining are sewn together when ordering blackout lining.
