Blue Kitchen Valance Idea
A kitchen valance is exposed to all kinds of abuse from the sun, kitchen grease and dust that comes in the window. A good valance should be of a fabric that will wash easily without looking worn, that won’t fade easily and that doesn’t demand a lot of maintenance. The list of bad functional choices for kitchen curtains and valances is long. Brocades are often dry-clean-only fabrics, linens are washable but take a lot of ironing and silks are easily rotted by sunlight. Luckily, fabrics like cotton, chintz and cotton blends do wear well and wash up easily. They still fade with time, but they’re inexpensive enough to be replaced easily.
