Window Measurements
Faux Roman Valances


  • Measure the width of window area you are covering. Choose a width that will cover the rod area plus any side returns on the rod.
  • For inside of your window frame, measure the width of your window frame.
  • For outside of your window frame we recommend having it line up with the outside edges of your molding, or 2-3 inches past the edge of your window frame.

Styling Tip

Faux Roman valances can use a continental spring tension rod or a decorative rod, but keep in mind, each rod type may require a different valance width.

Continental rods include 'returns' that wrap around the sides of the window frame, and can add several inches of overall width. When using a decorative rod, the Faux Roman valance should be the width of your window, from frame edge to frame edge.
