Custom Fixed/Faux Roman Shade Valance
Love the look of a modern roman shade but don't need it fully functional? Enter our cost-effective, faux roman shade valances.
These valances are intended to be decorative in a stationary position and do not roll up and down. We stitch them with a 2 inch rod pocket, so they can be mounted inside a window frame with a tension spring rod (ideally one inch diameter) or outside window frames on a decorative pole.
All valances come fully lined (except sheers) to protect fabric from harsh sunlight and fading. Hardware NOT included.
To place your order, please start by choosing the valance length and width ‘bands’. Then type in your exact measurements (in inches please).
Next, please choose if the valance is meant to be mounted inside or outside of the window frame so we can make appropriate adjustments to sizes.
Lastly, choose any fabric from our entire collection that you'd like us to use for your faux shade. Type in the name of this fabric in the product form above.
Length of a faux shade/valance is largely determined by your personal preference and size of the window. We recommend 20 inches for most windows, of which 3-6 inches are the bottom short 'folds'.
Number of folds on your valance depends on the overall specified length of the valance.
- 0-12" long valance is stitched with two folds
- 13-24" long valance is stitched with three folds
-25-36" long valance is stitched with four folds
INSIDE MOUNT ► Please make sure your window casing has at minimum a 1-1/2" depth (and more if you want blinds behind). Hang on a spring tension rod up to 1" in diameter.
For inside mounts, measure in between the window frame exactly, then subtract 0.25 inches (1/4") to 0.5 inches (1/2") to find the closest width you need to order. For example, a 40.0-inch inside measurement will require a 39.5-inch wide faux shade. Please note that your window casing should ideally be at least 1-1/2 inches deep for an inside mount to work properly (and more if you have blinds).
OUTSIDE MOUNT ► Hang on any decorative curtain rod up to 1-1/4" in diameter.
For outside mounts, measure the window including the trimwork, then add 1-2 inches total *if space permits*. For example, a 40-inch outside measurement will require a 41- to 42-inch wide faux shade. If your window doesn't have any wood trim around it and you'd like an outside mount, we highly recommend adding a few extra inches to width for a finished look.
