A valance is supplied with your order in one of the following styles, depending on how your blind will be mounted. For a more custom look, the valance and returns may be special ordered to your measurements.
NOTE: Valances with returns are measured and cut from the INSIDE of the miter to ensure the most accurate fit when installed over the headrail or window frame.
Blinds ordered as an OUTSIDE MOUNT will be supplied with returns sized to cover the end of the blind back to the mounting surface. If projection brackets are requested when the blind is ordered, longer returns will be sent automatically. Outside mount blinds are available without returns upon request.
Valance Return Measuring

Inside Return Measurements - 2 3/4” Standard

Blind Ordered as an INSIDE MOUNT with OB Valance will be supplied with 1/2” returns with cord tilt, ¾” returns with Wand tilt or 2.5” slat sizes.
Please state at the time of order if the valance and return measurement are for the EXACT size required so that no additions or deductions are made.
Different return sizes can be ordered for the same valance. Always provide LEFT return INSIDE measurements first when ordering.
