A Question of Proportion - Valance Length
My window height is 84" off the ground and the window itself is 72". I made the valance with a 18" drop, per the recommendation at Calico Corners. If I mount it two inches above the window molding, the valance will be 1/5 of the distance from its top to the floor. Do you think this is correct (and current)? My neighbor suggested I mount it higher.
The valance is box-pleated, over 36" wide windows. The room is 12 x 17 with cathedral ceilings. There is also an 8' wide window that will have a valance.
