Great top treatments are the crowing glory of any window treatment. Sheers, over-draperies or side panels are shown at their best, when a top treatment has been added. Top treatments are truly unique and make a definite statement that shows your special style and personality. What better way to set off your dining room, than with a custom designed window treatment complete with a dramatic top treatment.
Top treatments can actually save you energy, transform the height and width of your windows, coordinate with other fabrics in the room, and best of all, they can cover up utilitarian drapery hardware and rods. The most attractive drapery can be spoiled by opening it and exposing plain white rods.
The simplest and most well known top treatment is probably a pleated or shirred valance. Made like its traversing drapery counterpart, it helps to finish off the treatment and carry the fabric and color across the window area. These valances can be dressed up with scallops, trims, braiding, or even a contrasting fabric to set it off from your main drapery fabric.
No matter what style you choose, a distinctive top treatment will surely be a beautiful focal point in your dining room design.
