How to Measure: Valances


The rod pocket is included in the length.


For a valance that is gathered, and balloon valances, figure double the width of your window. For a flat, tailored look, the valance should be wide enough to cover the width of the rod plus the side returns of the rod.


Valances can be layered over curtains for a polished look or as layered over a shade. On their own, they allow more light at the window while still adding softness to interiors. The easiest way to hang tie-up valances is with two people.
