French Country Cornice Valance - OUTLET

  • The Cornice Valance is styled with a shaped bottom edge, a wide rod-pocket, and no header. To achieve the look simply hang flat on the rod for a tailored effect, or gather on the rod to create fullness.
  • Size Calculations: (Refer to the Diagrams tab for complete instructions on How to Measure a Window.)
    • Tailored (valance hangs flat across the window): For continental or lockseam 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.
    • Gathered (valance is gathered on the rod to create fullness): For continental or lockseam rods, an easy rule-of-thumb for calculating the size of the valance needed is to use 1.5X to 2X fullness. Example: 40” wide (window) x 1.5 (fullness) = 60” + 7” (sides of the rod) = 67”. Two 50” wide valances will create a full and gathered look. If using a decorative pole with finials, measure the width of the rod between the brackets, and multiply by 1.5X to 2X fullness, 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.
