There are many different types of window treatments you can apply to your home windows, so take some time picking the best option you’re going to love. The type of window treatments available offer different panel styles, and choosing a valance may be the best choice if you want your windows to appear larger. You should begin by measuring where you want to valance to start and stop, and also get the width measurement and add an inch to each side.
If your valance comes out a bit from the window, there is a place to mount the brackets onto the wall instead of the window. You should determine how much space on the window you want your panels to take up, and possibly leave a little space for the crown molding to stand out. You can use a French return rod, which curves around and attaches to the wall, allowing no light to shine in through the panels. Window treatments should be designed so the panel rod doesn’t hang out too much longer than the window molding for the best results.
