Product Details

This fully lined and interlined, mock pleated balloon shade can be adapted to fit various window widths. We like to use a contrasting fabric for the pleat insert and piping. We recommend using decorative knobs with post adapters for installation. The ties can be omitted and the valance can be hung on a decorative curtain rod with rings, as well.

Questions and Answers
Q: To hang this curtain on a rod, do you omit the return?
Asked by:  - 5/18/2014
A: No, we wouldn't omit the return even if we install it on a rod. High end window treatments have a return or sides which "returns" the treatment to the wall. This gives the treatment depth rather than being flat against the wall or hanging out away from the wall on the rod or knobs allowing you to see behind the treatment on the sides.
