Valance for the bed

The valance is a unique find for the hostess. It not only refines the appearance of the bedroom, but also adds a certain zest to the atmosphere of the room. About the features of this attribute and will be discussed in our article.

Special features

Let us see for a start what a "valor" is. This term is called decorative material, with which the lower edge of the bed is framed. And this is not just material. It can be made with the help of a fabric sewn with folds or ruffles. When the bed is removed, a valance hangs down and covers the lower part of the bedroom furniture.

It is necessary to highlight some of the positive aspects of using the valance on a sleeping bed:

  • Buying a large bed, people often do not think about the fact that from the old old bed they have only small bedding left. For example, a bedcover that fits under old furniture will now become scarce for a new bed. A valance solves this problem.
  • The view of the bedroom is transformed with the bed.
  • Pocketing with pockets will allow your favorite things to be always nearby, and in the baby’s room will serve to store the necessary children's accessories, such as diapers, bottles with a mixture or other important trifles.

Appearance history

In ancient times, the sleeping bed was made much higher - this is understandable: the closer to the ceiling, the warmer the air. Thus, beneath it appeared unallocated space for different household utensils. Grandmothers, for example, constantly hid chests or unnecessary kitchen utensils there. Naturally, this approach is not aesthetic and they tried to cover it with something, for example, a decorative curtain. So there was a valor or otherwise such a blind is called a “skirt”.

It was also believed that the valor protects the family from evil spirits with the help of the pattern applied to it.

Therefore, this bedroom decoration in ancient times was found in every home. Over time, this approach became a thing of the past, as the height of the beds decreased, and the body began to look more modern and sleeker. However, the vintage past for women has not disappeared, it remained as a tradition, so they did not let him fade away completely.And now this decoration has become again in fashion.

Models and colors

  • Pleated type. Mainly used in the classic style bedroom. The folds of this model of a valance are one-sided or opposite pleated: they look smoothed and laid.

According to the constructive, a bed can be divided into the following variations:

  • Solid cover. It can be laid on the top of the bed or placed under the mattress. Can be found on the bed options, where the crust is relatively low. Otherwise, it would be best to use a skirt skirt design.
  • Skirt with elastic. Instead, it can also be a ribbon, rope, or some kind of sticky material. Installation is as follows: the skirt is worn on the body of the bed (you can on the mattress) only when the bed is tidied.
