With any home improvement project, making the right decisions has a significant impact on the end results. With window treatments, that means understanding the differences in options and picking the one appropriate for the space you are working in. Choosing the right window treatment is easy when you have the right information.
The first thing you need to do is consider the space you’re planning the treatment for. Different rooms of the home have treatment options that are right for them. If you’re planning a window treatment for your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room, a valance is the best choice. If you’re working on one for your living room, dining room, bedroom, or personal office then a long drapery panel is the better option.
The next step is ensuring you take the proper measurements. Each window treatment option requires you to measure for additional space above the window for the best results. For the valance treatment option, you want it to be higher up to give the sense that the window is bigger than it is. For a long drapery panel, you need to measure with the length of the drapes in mind.
