Add the Finishing Touch to Your Windows with a Custom Top Treatment
Top treatments, like a valance, cornice, scarves and more can finish a window treatment beautifully. Top treatments can also be used alone or as an additional design element to balance out a room. Available in a variety of shapes and fabrics, top treatments add style to your windows and can also conceal window treatment hardware.
From Traditional to Contemporary Top Treatments
A valance is a top treatment similar to a cornice; the difference is that a valance is only fabric while a cornice has a wooden frame. You can choose from a vast selection of top treatments in different sizes and patterns. Adding top treatments is an easy way to show off your personal style, and it adds an air of sophistication to your home. Bretz Interiors consultants will work with any style requirements to ensure your complete satisfaction. Some of the more common top treatment styles include:
A Balloon or pouf valance add softness and color and is a nice top treatment for small windows either used alone or paired with café curtains or blinds. Usually a balloon valance will be fitted outside the window recess and add a unique look to any room.
A window cornice adds a strong architectural character to any room. It is a box like wooden valance that can be covered in fabric, wallpaper or painted. It is also a great solution to conceals mounting hardware for drapes and blinds. If you already have interesting molding, we can design the cornice to match. Otherwise, let your mind run free. You can pair your cornice with drapes or use along to provide a more formal look.
A simple valance is primarily used to add color, hide window treatment hardware or to add color and softness to a room. A simple valance is the most basic and casual of treatments and can be simply a piece of fabric attached with either rings, clip or pocket rod.
A pleated valance is more traditional and formal than a simple valance. The box-pleated valance lands straight down over the window and is generally attached to the window with an L-shaped rod. Resembles the look of a cornice, but with softer edges.
Cascades & Swags
Cascades and swags work well together to create a classic more formal window treatment. A swag without the cascading fabric is basically a piece of fabric loosely slung and draped over a decorative rod. For a little more style, they can be wound over a tieback at each corner of a window frame. There are many different ways to hang swags, but one of the most common is a simple swag, where the swag drapes in the middle like a valance; the ends, either cut into diagonals or simply hemmed, softly hang down on each side of the window. Both create a fashionable look.
