Kitchen window valances borders and booty curtains are used kitchen window treatments, partly because they are short and do not hide from view. Since their main function is decorative, they should be paired with curtains or blinds for privacy. Borders, also known as window sills, are used to dress windows without blocking light or sight. Loot curtains also perform a decorative function, since they are short at the top and their tails or sides, fall along the window frame. Both types of window treatments bring color, pattern and texture to the kitchen.
The racks have essentially shortened curtains. Almost any type of curtain is adaptable to valance style, but some types are more popular as window first than others. Eyelash-lid, rod pocket, whit pleat, box-pleated, tied, covered and curtains collected are some of the most common styles of the valance. A wooden cornice is another valance that can also double as a shelf above the window.

Traditionally, garlands are used in rooms with formal decoration. However, cloth selection and finishing techniques can result in an informal window treatment. Less formal garlands are composed of fabric draped artistically through a curtain rod. More elaborate garlands with multiple layers of fabric stitched in place before assembly. Garlands do not all have tails. Those without borders are short booty.
