A beautiful way to add color and softness to your home is by using top treatments. Available in a wide variety of shapes and fabrics, Delux Drapery & Shade Co. offers many options, including cornices, valances and swags.

Top treatments can be used alone or paired with other treatments, such as blinds, draperies shades and sheers. Top treatments are a great solution for concealing window hardware or to hide any imperfections in the window’s trim while adding a decorative touch to your home.


A valance is usually a simple piece of fabric that hangs over the top of a window that adds visual interest, softness and decorative flair. It’s an example of how just a small piece of fabric can have a big effect on a home’s decor. There are many style options when it comes to valances, here are a few examples:

Simple Valances

These are a great option for adding a finished look to casual rooms such as your kitchen, bathroom or breakfast nook. Simple valances are most often mounted on ordinary drapery hardware, using a sewn-in rod pocket along the top of the valance.

Box-Pleated Valances

These valances give a more formal and finished look than simple valances. The tailored look of box-pleated valances is ideal for rooms like the master bedroom, living room or dining room. In more formal homes, they work well in breakfast nooks and bathrooms, as well. Box-pleated valances can be made with straight or scalloped hems, with or without tassels and rope details, and with both solid fabrics and repeating patterns. The simplest designs include a rod pocket which allows the use of standard drapery hardware. More complex designs include board mounting to create the added dimension of a cornice above your windows.

Custom Valances

If creating the perfect look for your room is proving to be difficult, a custom valance could be the solution you’ve been looking for. Designers like Delux Drapery & Shade Co. can design and create the ideal valance for any window and style.


A cornice, in the simplest of terms, is a valance made of wood or other similar material. Cornices work well in rooms that don’t have crown molding or other interesting architectural features. Delux Drapery & Shade Co. offers custom made cornices. Our cornices can be covered in wallpaper or fabric to achieve a softer look. We can also stain or paint them to match or complement existing decor.


A versatile solution that can dress up any room is a window swag. A swag is loosely draped over a decorative curtain rod can have a big impact on the look of a window and a room. A swag can be made from any fabric you like, in any thickness, and with or without a lining. The simple swag is the most popular, swags can be as casual or sophisticated as the rest of your design.
