The term has been evolved as a decorative element, but is often used to describe various coverings like sheers, curtains, blinds, cornices, shutters and valances. For both houses and business firms, blinds are commonly used for window treatments. Now wide varieties of blinds are available like the paper blinds, mini blinds, slat blinds and verticals. The blinds made of wood are a special choice for modern homes. The wooden slat blinds and woven wood blinds are perfect for any stylish interiors. In extreme weather conditions, shutters are the most widely opted treatment for ventilation and insulation. These shutters are made of faux wood and keep the unwanted glare away to give maximum comfort.
In interior design, a valence is a type of window treatment that is mounted across the top of a window. Typically, these are combined with the aforementioned drapes or curtains. Valences can be gathered bunches of fabric, pleated, arched wooden structures and so forth. Like curtains or drapes, valences are extremely versatile.
Size of the window is an important factor to be considered. If the window size is small then, a rod can be installed either below the line of ceiling or just above the trim. Extra panels that are long hang from them. This gives the image of the window being tall. For a large window, tone the scale of the window down by making it look simple. For tall windows, don't use panels that are long. Break these lengthwise by adding a swag or valence different from the remaining part of the design.
