A Best Guide to Buy Window Panel/Valance

Think window treatments are purely decorative? On the contrary, this bedroom item has a functional purpose, providing privacy and blocking the sun so you can sleep in on lazy weekends. So how do you know which option is right for you? If you’re looking to keep out the light while turning your space into a cozy cave, drapes may be the way to go. On the other hand, if you want to up the decor factor while allowing a little light to slip in, traditional curtains are a wise choice. Then again, valances are a great option for those seeking to up their home’s style quotient. At Latest Bedding, we’re pleased to offer a wide selection of bedding decor, including window treatments, luxury comforter sets, throw pillows, blankets, and more. Keep reading to learn more about selecting the best curtains for the bedroom and beyond. 


When it comes to curtain fabric, the options are extensive. Those looking to maximize sun-blocking may prefer heavier fabrics such as velvet or thick silk. Want something you can toss in the washer? A cotton or cotton blend may be the way to go. Finally, linen curtains are great for those who appreciate a natural look in the bedroom. Ultimately, the right fabric for window treatments is whichever one works for you. 


Solid-colored curtains may be a common choice. However, more adventurous decorators love incorporating patterns and prints into the bedroom. In particular, a patterned fabric works well if your comforter or duvet is more neutral. Consider a range of prints, from traditional florals and stripes to more playful options such as paisley or graphic designs. 



Colors are as varied in the curtain world as they are in the world of luxury comforter sets. To create the most cohesive look in the bedroom, we suggest choosing a curtain color that’s in the same family as your wall paint but a few shades darker. For example, ivory walls often look lovely with beige curtains. On the other hand, a pink wall looks great with window treatments in a deep shade of mauve. You can also opt for curtains in a shade featured in your bedding or area rug. The goal is to choose a shade that reflects your taste and helps create the mood you want to sleep. 


Browse the aisles of your local bedding store, and the odds are good you’ll see curtains in a wide range of lengths. While the options available can be confusing, aspiring decorators should note that floor-length window treatments are typically the way to go. The most aesthetically appealing curtains have a hem that just brushes the floor. Depending on the height of your windows, this length may measure anywhere from 63 to 144 inches. Note that it’s not uncommon to opt for shorter curtains (such as cafe length) in the kitchen or bathroom.
