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.
Window treatments should facilitate looking out of the window from within the room and prevent or hamper looking inside the room. This can be achieved by the proper shades, coverings and shutters. While ventilation is unaffected the view from the window is enhanced while privacy is maintained. Choosing the right blinds for the purpose will go a long way in decorating the inside of the house while maintaining privacy as well. The kind of blinds chosen for privacy will depend on the kind of house and where the window is facing.
This comes into play in all rooms. A bathroom for instance needs to be an area of complete privacy from the world outside. However, many bathrooms are retreats, spa like mini get-a-ways for individuals to relax. Some people prefer a warm light to be present while others like the serenity darkness brings. Whatever your preference a layered window treatment should blend and give the result you are looking to achieve. Sunscreen roller shades are a natural feel that maintain light while giving off a warm glow combining natural light and privacy. Shades are often paired nicely with a decorative valance.
