How to install a rod-pocket valance curtain set?

Measurement and Installation Guide

Instruction-window frame measurement 


When you order online, width refers to the valance width, and height refers to the curtain panel height.

We recommend using two single curtain rods of 1" - 2" in diameter: the top one is for the valance with swags and tails, and the lower one for the two curtain panels. This way, you have more flexibility in adjusting height, width and projection (distance from the wall). The valance rod should be fixed wider, higher, and projected further away from the wall than the panel rod.

Brackets Installation 

The brackets for the panel rod should be installed at least 3'' below and inside those for the valance rod. The same applies to the brackets for the panel rod to the window. This way, we can make sure the valance and the curtain panels can fully cover the window.

For example, if your window is 58'' wide and 80'' to the floor,you might want to order a full set of 84'' in height and 70'' in width. If you have enough wall space, you can go as wide as you like. The above is for your reference as to the minimum setback.

The brackets for valance rod should be at least 3'' longer than those for the panel rod. This way, we can leave some clearance between the valance and the underneath curtain panels.

Hang the valance rod onto the upper rod brackets. Shape the swags from the top side to the lower center in a "U" shape to smooth out the curves and folds. 

You are done! Enjoy your beautiful window treatment.

For valances of 80'' or wider, there will be an opening at the back of the rod pockets in case you need an extra bracket to support the rod.
