Valances & Swags

A valance is a piece of fabric that hangs across the top of a window to add softness, color, and pattern and is attached to a rod with clip rings or a rod pocket. Pleated Valances are more formal and traditional than simple valances. When used alone, a valance will dress up a plain window and add color to complement the rest of the room’s décor.

Swags are pieces of fabric loosely slung and draped over a decorative rod or wound over a tieback at each corner of a window frame to add some style and romance to your windows and are usually made using one of three standard methods – Pleated, Shirred, and Flat.

When used with curtains, drapery panels, shutters, blinds, or shades, the valance acts as a final touch to the complete window treatment and gives the window a clean, finished, and professional appearance. Read more

Custom Valances and Swags

Valances and Swags add softness, color, and style to any window. They are beautiful alone or can be layered over our custom-made fabric window treatments, Blinds, Shades, or Plantation Shutters. ​​Valances come in different styles – Board Mounted, Rod Pocket, Pole-Mounted, Kingston, Pleated, Balloon – and can be made from various designer fabrics, including sheer, lace, or linen.

Swags have less structure than valances. In fact, a swag is a longer and wider strip of fabric that drapes across the top of the window. In addition, they can be woven loosely around a rod, or they can drape from one tieback to another. Swags can also feature a “tail” that hangs along the side of the window and even to the floor.

If you are looking for a stylish way to dress up your windows, valances and swags are a great choice. At Curtains Boutique, we specialize in designing, fabricating, and installing custom-made valances and swags.
