Before we go any further, let’s first define what a valance is. A valance is a decorative piece of fabric that is hung from an awning, a canopy, patio cover, or other shade structure. The valance adds a creative flare or aesthetic to your awning/shade structure.
Now that we know what a valance is, let’s talk about the options you have. Often times we forget that we can create a valance that is different in color or shape than the awning or shade structure.
