In the previous blog, various types of window shutter dressing options were discussed. Valance was a popular choice among them. However, you might feel that such accessories are unsuitable for modern plantation shutters. But it actually can be used to accentuate plantation shutters, provided a few factors are considered in advance. These factors will be addressed in this blog.
The most important thing to consider is the functionality of the window shutter. Ensure that it can operate freely without facing any kind of obstruction from the valance. To be sure, consult window shutter experts like California Shutters, who can accurately guide you through the process.
The valence’s size and style are another important factor to consider. It should complement the style of the window shutter. For instance, a simple design might be better suited for modern plantation shutters. Alternatively, you can go for patterned ones to fit a bold shutter or create a contrast with a pastel-hued shutter.
Where should the valance be mounted, inside or outside the shutter? This closely ties in with the first point, as the most important criterion is the functionality of the window shutter.
Using a valence warrants the question of how would you decorate the rest of the room. Apply colours that complement the valance to create a pleasing aesthetic and further enhance its beauty. After all, modern plantation shutters are very functional, so valence is simply a decorative element at this point.
