Custom Box Pleat Valance with Contrast Fabric inside the Pleats Use Your Fabric



In stock

Whoa! You can't buy your own item.



This custom box pleat valance will add charm and sophistication to any room in your home. It features one box pleat at each corner. A center pleat must be added for windows wider than 52" to hide the seam. Inside each pleat is a contrast fabric to add to the character of this window treatment. This valance is board mounted using velcro for easy installation and removal (see listing pictures). I provide the mounting board custom cut to your dimensions, the fabric lining, and the easy installation instructions with your purchase.

You may choose to have the coordinating fabric remain completely inside the pleat like the flower valance from the gallery or have it extend an inch outside the pleat to create the look of a trim stripe like the coral/orange ikat valance from the gallery. I am open to creative ideas to help you create a custom window treatment for your home.

I do not stock fabrics for you to choose from, but I am more than happy to provide fabric sources if you need help or inspiration. This valance requires a yard or two of a 54" medium weight home decor fabric. Yardage is largely dependent on the size of your valance and the size of the fabric print. I will confirm yardage with you.

Pricing given is for a single valance up to 48" wide x 16" tall. I will advise if the fabric pattern size lends itself to a different length. Extra length can also be added upon request. Please note that wider valances will have a pleat in the center to hide the seam. Mounting board is 3.5" in depth. Board depth can also be adjusted if needed. Message me for pricing over 48" wide.

After ordering a custom box pleat valance from Easier Than I Thought, I decided my nursery also needed a matching crib skirt. Ahna took on the challenge and it turned out absolutely adorable! She was so helpful with measuring instructions and she intuitively knew how the box pleats should work with the fabric and crafted an fantastic custom look that was absolutely worth the investment. Ahna has great creative skill, she's highly intuitive with fabric and pattern and has the attention to detail that leads to exceptional quality. Highly recommend!

Best Etsy purchase ever! The process was easy and I got the valance within the given time frame. I could not be happier with the results. I’m tempted to do this to all my windows now lol

Ahna did an amazing job on our valances. We had her make 4 window valances and 1 for our sliding glass door. She had noticed that the material we had chosen might not be good for pressing to get the necessary creases and pleats in them and asked us to send her a sample so she could be sure it would work for us. We appreciated her thoroughness and knowledge in guiding us through the process. Once she confirmed that all was good with the material, we moved forward. She did a great job keeping us up to date on the status of our order. The valances were well made and packed with care. We've received lots of compliments on our new window treatments. The quality is great and we will be ordering more from her in the future.

Beautiful workmanship! Ahna is wonderful to work with. She knew the fabric I chose would require a blackout lining because she could tell from the photo I sent her that my windows were in a sunny location. My valances were finished sooner than expected. Instructions for hanging were clear and concise. It was very easy. I couldn't be happier and highly recommend EasierThanIThought.
