Window valences or top treatments can be used by themselves or in conjunction with curtains and window treatments. Window valences can be used to cover the head rail of the blinds under neat or not so attractive window frame as well. Valences coupled with curtains and window treatments add beauty and warmth to any home. Swags are considered to be more traditional and classic. However, the choice of fabric and application can change all the perspective. Window valences and top treatments can be board mounted or hung on decorative wood pole as desired. Swags and Cascades have always been very popular on formal living room and dining room. They add an unsurpassed elegance and sophistication. Valances and cornice box treatments are also very popular when you want to add a little color and texture without taking the risk of overdoing and getting too complex.
