Board Mounted Valance Ideas

Board mounted valances mean that the fabric treatment is attached to a board. Thus eliminating the need for decorative hardware. This can be a visually simpler and usually lower cost. Design options are limitless.
Tip: Install the valance well above the window glass so that the view and light are not blocked. This will make the window appear taller.

Here are examples of the many possibilities of board mounted valances. All were designed by me and fabricated by my professional workroom.

106" width is possible.

Contrasting fabrics create detail.

Simple box valance.

Box style with two contrasting pleats.

Shaped valance with contrasting welt and center accent.
Trim and two fabrics.

Trim adorns the top and a contrasting fabric in a center pleat offer a simple yet interesting treatment.

Two fabrics, contrasting patterns and shapes enhance details of the room.

Tight area required a simple treatment to allow the pattern to be the focus.

Shape and pattern offer a lot of decoration in a simply detailed space.
