Choose from many different styles of window treatments. Drapery panels can be flannel interlined for a fuller, richer look and also be energy efficient as they protect you from draft that may come thru your window. Dupioni silk, faux silk or taffeta is normally interlined because of its thin appearance. Extra long draperies can be made when stage drapes are needed. Sheer drapery panels, extra wide or seamless sheer panels can be placed behind your decorative panels to finish the project. Use the ripplefold panel treatment for a smooth contemporary look and eliminate the decorative rod. Call for yardage quotes if you are not sure how much fabric to buy then look thru my drapery ideas.

These valances are the same as
pleated except the pleats are
made flat instead of folded to the
front. They can be standard or
inverted and can have accent
fabrics inserted inside the opening
of the fold or use the same fabric. They can be board mounted for a more structured or formal look, or rod mounted for a more relaxed look. They also can be shaped at the bottom to give it more of a swag appeal. Embellish it with decorative trim and it becomes more elegant. A shaped bottom with a textured fabric may lend itself to a more relaxed look. All board mounted valances include the wood and mounting hardware is included if installed by a professional installer.
There are many different styles of valances and are handmade with or without trim. They are made the same as a panel with the exception of the length. Choose from the many different styles available or design your own. They can be contemporary such as the throw swag or grommet style valance, or they can be traditional like the tab top rod pocket style or formal like the Kingston or empire. The empire valance is the same as the Kingston except the pleating is on the top of the board where the Kingston is along the sides of the horns. Therefore the Empire
has a more contemporary appeal to it but still
remains formal. Reduce the number of pleats on
an Empire and you have the contemporary version
of the valance. Valances add color to the functional
or non-functional panels under the valance and add
to the completion of a window treatment.
All cornice boxes are made out of wood and
wrapped in dacron. Fabric and any trim or
cording is extra. Wood, dacron and back

Panels can be functional or non-functional and are fabricated to fit your window requirements. All panels have a standard fee and embellishments such as trims, attached valances or different headings such as grommet panels, tab tops or pleated tops are extra. More than one fabric can be used to accent other colors that are subtle in your room. Use color blocking with solid bold colors for a more contemporary look. Color banding can be used along the inside edges of panels and add tassel trim or cording to accentuate the leading edge.
The top of a panel that is pleated or flat is
called a “heading”. A pleated top can be
made in different styles with several options.
A slight change in the way a pleat is tacked
will change the appearance of the top of the
panel or valance. You may prefer a more
traditional style pleat and choose the
standard French pinch pleat or want a more
contemporary style and have the euro-pleat. Pleats can be top, center or bottom tacked and will significantly change the look of the heading while
Swags and cascades have always been a choice when curved shapes are needed. They can be board mounted or as an open treatment on a decorative wood or wrought iron rod. You can have swags valances made with Velcro to fold over the rod or attach the top of the horns with decorative rings to match the rod. Cascades can be made at any length and are capable as serving as a contemporary or formal treatment. You choices are endless and you can use a design in a picture or design your own. Anything you find can be fabricated from a picture.
