Valance rods and brackets are used to hang fabric window treatments. The proper placement of the hardware depends largely upon the length and width of the valance to be hung, the width of the window, and the placement of an existing curtain rod. Consider using decorative valance rods if your window treatment will allow them to show; otherwise standard hardware will be sufficient. Many valances can hang on almost any rod and can help create a comfortable, inviting atmosphere in a room.
