Kitchen Window Valances

Kitchen window valances can add a decorative touch to your kitchen decor. They can be used to create a certain theme through your kitchen – either your own unique style or the more traditional kitchen themes.

A valance is simply a piece of fabric that you place along the very top of your kitchen windows and are usually short, though they can vary in length. You can use them to dress up a window on their own, or they can be used in conjunction with mini blinds or sheer curtaining, just hanging down over the top section of the windows to create decorative kitchen window treatments.

Do not confuse kitchen window valances with pelmets, which are more of a fixture made from wood which is then padded and covered with material. A valance gives a softer effect because it’s usually made from fabric material, though there are some creative people who have used baskets and other objects as valances across the tops of their windows.

You can also drape scarves or pieces of fabric that go with your kitchen decor over curtain rods which will produce a softer swag effect. You can really add your own style and flair to your kitchen using kitchen window valances and can carry the theme through the rest of the room in the accent colours you use in your tablecloths, seat cushions and napkins etc.

Kitchen window valances allow plenty of light into your kitchen when used on their own or with sheer curtaining or kitchen blinds, giving the room an open airy feel. You can also buy matched sets where the valance has matching bottom tiers, to create a more consistent effect on your kitchen windows.
