- The Bravo Valance is styled with a shaped bottom edge, a narrow rod-pocket, and a header. To achieve the look simply gather the short points together on the rod, leaving the long points flat, as shown.
- Size Calculations: (Refer to the Diagrams tab for complete instructions on How to Measure a Window.) For continental or lock seam rods, add a total of 7” to the width of the window to allow for the sides of the curtain rod (3-1/2” each side). Example: 40” wide (window) + 7” (sides of the rod) = 47”. A 50” wide valance is the perfect choice. For a decorative pole with finials, measure the width of the rod between the brackets, and do not include 7” for the sides.

How to Measure a Window
Measure windows with a steel measuring tape. Measure all windows in the room, even if they appear to be the same size.
Determine rod placement (options):
- Distance out past window -- 4” each side is a good rule of thumb
- Distance out past window -- abut against outside edges of window frame
- Top of window frame -- corner to corner
- Wall to wall
Determine drapery hardware to be used:
- Determine how far above window to place hardware -- 4” above frame is a good rule of thumb
- Determine return size needed (the distance that the rod projects from the wall/window frame
Measure for drapery length:
- Apron length
- Floor length
- Ceiling to floor
- Allow for floor clearance -- floor length draperies should end 1/2” above floor or just short of the carpet
- Hint: Place a thin piece of cardboard on top of the carpet to help measure evenly.
