Valance Returns on Wood Blinds, Venetian Blinds
Q:What is a valance return on wood blinds?
All of our horizontal blinds come with a free valance. With most of our wood blinds and our faux wood blinds this is a crown valance made from the same material as the blinds themselves. We offer returns on outside mount blinds as well as a "cornice style valance" on many of our inside mount blinds which has returns as well.
Cornice style valance with returns vs standard valance
But what is a valance return? A valance return is the side pieces added to a standard valance. With a standard inside mount blind the valance is cut to fit within the window frame and is one piece of molding. With outside mount valances or "Cornice Style" valances the valance is cut at 45 degrees and side pieces are added to each side of the valance bringing the valance back to the wall. On outside mount blinds this covers the sides of the headrail and the brackets. With "Cornice style" valances this creates a more elegant look to the blinds.
