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

Whoa! You can't buy your own item.

  • Handmade

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.

Step 3- I will reply to your message with a cost estimate for your project and fabric yardage needed.

If you choose to accept your estimate, I will write up a custom listing for you to purchase.

*Please note that due to the varied installation applications, I do not provide mounting hardware. This valance uses simple L brackets that can be purchased at any home improvement store.

Ahna is truly a professional, both in the quality of her work and in her customer service and communication. From start to finish she has provided step-by-step directions on the ordering process, making it completely flawless. I couldn't be more pleased with the beautiful valance I received. It looks amazing on my window. She will definitely be my choice for similar purchases. J.W.

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.
