  1. Gather the Materials

Before you can hand our valances, you need to have the right set of tools. We suggest that you gather following materials.

  • Drill
  • Level
  • Screws
  • Wall-Mounting Brackets
  • Curtain Rod
  • Valance Rod
  • Pencil
  • Tape Measure
  1. Select the Correct Hardware

When installing the valance, you need to keep in mind that the wall-mounting brackets for the curtain rod have to be half their length. For instance, if the curtain brackets are only two inches in length, the valance brackets would need to be four inches in length.

  1. Install Curtain Brackets

The placement of the initial bracket should be marked using a pencil and tape measure. For longer curtains, you will need to place the curtain rods a bit higher. The pencil should be used to mark the initial curtain bracket. Then, you will need to do the same for the second bracket. After you have marked both the brackets, you need to use a level to check and see if the marks even properly aligned. Once you are satisfied, you can proceed with drilling the wall to place the brackets using screws.

  1. Install the Valance Brackets

The placement of the valance brackets needs to be measured and marked above the curtain rod. Make sure that the alignment is checked using a level to correctly drill the wall.

  1. Hang the Curtain

Run the curtain rod over the tabs if you are installing tab-top curtains. Then, you can hang the brackets of the rod. When using curtain rings or any other hardware, ensure to attach that hardware to the curtains. After that you can hang the rod onto the brackets.

  1. Hang the Valance

Finally, the valance run should be run through the top or curtain hardware will need to be used for attaching the rod and valance. It all depends on the style of valance you have noticed. Then, the valance rod needs to be attached to the brackets and the valance would be adjusted accordingly for spreading the fabric evenly.



Once you have gone over our post, you will be able to install our Venetian Crown Dash Three with minimal effort.
