MEASURING FOR BAY VALANCES
Made to Measure Valances: Will suit either bay or straight windows
These are fitted either onto a board with velcro or onto a duo rail with hooks, above the curtains.
The board would need to be at least 6" deep to allow clearance for the
curtains, and can either be top fixed to the ceiling or face fixed into
the wall. The board is covered in either matching fabric to the
curtains or Lining.
The rail consists of a standard track for the curtains to hang from
then another track that extends out with returns at each end to hold
- Install the board or duo rail first.
- Use a steel tape measure (if it is not steel it may stretch and give in accurate measurements).
Board & Track:
- Measure board or valance track from A-B, B-C, and C-D for width of pelmet & valance.
- The drop of a valance is usually a sixth of the curtain drop.
Other styles of valance tracks are also available.
