Express Your Style with Unique Window Valances

Pennant ValanceValances, those crowning touches to window treatments, can be used in combination with draperies or by themselves to add personal style to a room. In smaller spaces where draperies might be too much fabric, or where a window is in an awkward location, a valance alone can be just the right solution. Swags and tails may be “out” right now, but there are many simple, chic and up to date valance styles to consider – you can even draw your own shape guided by the design of your windows.

Valances are a stylish, tailored and less expensive alternative to draperies, and as you can see, creative ideas are plenty. Update your valances by getting rid of those swags, jabots, and ruffles, and choose a more tailored style. An interesting fabric with a bold design is the modern way to personalize your space.

I am looking for a lined, classing-looking, kitchen valance, approximately 18 inches long.

My kitchen walls are yellow, and the ceiling is white.
