There are many different types of window treatments,
but one of the most practical is the "pinch-pleated
drapery". They are generally hung from some type
of traverse rod or pole; that allows the drapery
to open and close (either by hand or traverse
by pulling a cord) across the opening.
A valance is similar to a cornice in that it covers
the top of a window. Use it to cover the tops
of shutters, blinds, verticals, or venetian blinds-it
hides the headrail well.
A Cornice is a board, usually covered in fabric,
that sits on top of a window. It can be shaped
or plain. You can give it a soft feel or a hard
feel to it by adding more or less padding under
A swag is a piece of fabric draped over a pole
that runs across the top of the window.
Jabots are the "legs" that go down the side of
the window. They are always attached to the swag.
