A softly draped skirt adds charm and character to your bedroom – it’s a wonderful way to personalise your divan.
Our bed valances are tailor made to fit your divan base. The lengths and widths correspond with standard bed sizes while the drop is to your measurement enabling the skirt to fully conceal the divan’s base. Pick from the following bed sizes: narrow single 2’6”: W:76cm L:191cm; single: 3' W:91cm L:191cm; small double: 4' W:120cm L:191cm; double: 4'6" W:137cm L:191cm; king 5’: W:153cm L:200cm; super king 6’: W:183cm L:200cm; emperor 7’: W:213cm L:200cm. You’ll just need to supply the drop measurement so we can create your custom-made design.
You’ll need to consider which fabric you prefer for your custom-made valance, which can be selected from our huge collection from the leading fabric design houses, or may be a fabric you supply to us to use. If you go for the latter option, you’ll need to supply the following fabric quantities based on a plain fabric no less than 137cm wide and with a skirt drop of no more than 38cm: narrow single: 3.5m; single: 4m; small double: 4m; double: 4m; king size: 4.5m; super king: 5m; emperor: 5.5m. If you’re planning to use a patterned fabric and/or need a larger skirt drop, please contact us for fabric amounts. Both plains and patterns can be attractive choices for a kick pleated valance, but if you need advice on whether a particular pattern is suitable, we’re happy to advise: please do get in touch. And while subtle neutral shades are often popular for valances, there’s no reason not to go for a block of more eye-catching colour for your bed.
Our kick pleated valance has a smart and neat finish that makes it ideal for all sorts of bedroom schemes including those with clean contemporary style, boutique hotel influenced rooms, classically comfortable designs and those with mid-century appeal. If your taste is more country, though, you could opt for our gathered valance instead, which will suit rooms with more rustic cottage appeal. Either way, you might like to combine a new valance with beautiful extras for your bed that up the comfort and interest. Think a selection of cushions, and an eiderdown and throws. An upholstered headboard is also the perfect partner to a both a kick pleated or gathered valance.
