Often times, it is difficult to know what type of a valance or top treatment will look the best for your windows. One design challenge is when the tops of the windows are quite low on a wall. Visually, this is unsettling. The need is to create more height on the window. Your blinds, shades or shutters are creating the functional solutions to the problem, but it is difficult to choose what goes over the top. You could put a standard valance of many different types on it, but it won’t help in using the amount of space over the window that your dilemma creates. In this video, I show the type of window that I’m talking about here and one solution that I like to use.

The roman shades in this video are a great solution, because they are designed to be tall and skinny, and so when you artificially create height above the window, they seem to be appropriate to the room. These shades, though they have a lot of pleats at the bottom would NOT go to the bottom of the window if they were extended. They are there strictly as decoration.

Keep in mind that these examples are not “one size fits all”. A good designer will be able to assist you in choosing the right product for your windows.
