Pelmets and Valances

Pelmets are not just functional; they can create a design statement, for example, when made in a contrasting colour to a curtain or blind. Padded pelmets are usually straight and simple for a streamlined look, and the fabrics used can add more colour to a space. In terms of insulating a window, the combination of curtain and pelmet can stop winter heat loss by up to 40%, which is greater than the amount saved by double glazed windows.
