Valances For Bay Windows
This bay window project had several different parts. We needed to install cellular shades (“honeycomb shades”). And then make a custom curtain valance that would cover the shades when the shades were pulled up. We used cordless lift cellular shades. No cords are especially great if you have kids or pets. Cordless shades also provide a clean look without having to contend with cords and trying to tuck them out of sight.
Window Valance In Bay Window
We made a custom valance out of a light fabric. Another factor that had to be considered was the custom on the window seat of the bay window. Everything had to be coordinated. What was challenging about this project (and most involving bay windows) is the tight angles and corners. The shades have to be wide enough to cover the windows but getting the ends of the shades to fit in place on each side is something that can be difficult to do. Adding a valance and having that fit snuggling just adds to the challenge. When a project finally comes together, it’s a great feeling. Cellular shades with a custom valance are a great combination together in a bay window.
