How To Make Kitchen Valance Curtains (DIY): 

Here’s how to make kitchen valance curtains yourself. If you go through this step by step guidelines, you’ll be able to know how to do the job with ease. Let’s look at a glance. 

  • Measure The Width: Measure the width of the window using a tape measure. 
  • Measure The Length Of The Valance: Now, measure the length of the valance using the same tape measure. Have it in your mind that valance should be a little bit longer than the window. So, measure the tension rod or wood you’re going to use. 
  • Measure The Fabric And Cut It: Lay the fabric in any flat surface. If your intention is to make straight valance on a rod, then cut the fabric based on the tension rod length. On the other hand, if your intention is to make a gathered valance, then measure the fabric 2.½ times the window width. Based on your choice, you can cut the fabric a little bit longer or a litter bit shorter. However, always use chalk in order to cut the fabric at the right size. This is how you can accurately determine the size of the valance. 
  • Measure The Height Of The Valance: Now, measure the height of the  valance how it should be. It totally depends on the width and height of the kitchen window. Mind it while too long valance will destroy the beauty of your kitchen window, too short valance will cause the same problem.  So make a proper balance. 
  • Measure The Hem: Measure a 1-inch hem on both sides of the valance: And then pin the fabric and sew it. Remove the pin once you sew the fabric. 
  • Fold The Valance: Right now, fold the valance in half lengthwise: The fold should be at the bottom of the valance. 
  • Measure a 1-inch Hem: Measure a 1-inch hem from the top of the valance. Now pin and then saw in place. Once you’ve sewon, make sure that you have removed the pin.  
  • Measure 2-inch: Measure 2-inch below you have just sewon and then mark the place with chalk. Now, sew the chalk line in order to make a pocket. 
  • Decor The Kitchen Window: once you have down the step by step process, your kitchen valance curtain is ready to use. Now place the valance and decor of your kitchen window.
