The choice of tab top valances can be overwhelming – fabrics, lengths, layers and functions have an infinite number of options. One way to sort through the confusion is to define how valances hanging. That determines its form, the way you work with windows and room decor, and even the possible options for the fabric.
Tab top valances have fabric tabs on the top edge of the valances that slide through a valances rod. Tabs can be matching or contrasting fabric, leather, plastic or ribbons attached. They are very simple and casual valances and can be whipped together in no time. A soft tissue pull open and closed easily; a stiff organza could sit as a panel of the window.
Eyelets or grommets are metal rings embedded at the top of the valances sliding on the rod. The eyelets are another simple treatment that can be very contemporary in a sleek modern geometric print or canvas. Cafe tab top valances cover the lower half of the window and hang from rings that slide over the valances rod. They are usually closed for privacy and can have a border collection that opens and closes in the upper half of the window to control the light.
