Fabric/colour for my valances in my kitchen

+3
Answered
I would like to change out my valances in my kitchen. Was thinking about a geometric plain fabric that I can put colourful pillows on the chairs and a rug underneath. My local fabric stores don't have much so I wondered if there is any cool patterns on the net that you could suggest. Or, should I go with a colour? I have medium oak cabinets and paint colour is a warm peanut shell colour.

    With so much brown and cabinets, I would use a brown and teal/powder blue/taupe color scheme that is popular now. You could go for a yellow/forest green color scheme, too. Actually you could go with almost any color scheme with the neutral colors you have now.

    Hi from Australia. My choice of fabric would be white with a repeat yellow morrocan tile shape pattern. With a plain white pull down roller blind behind.

    Oh to have so many lovely cabinets! Love to see a photo when you have your new curtains, too.

    Your windows would appear much larger without the valances. I would add ceiling to floor curtains on either sides of each window instead.

    I would suggest fabric covered cornices. My daughter just made some for her kitchen/den area. It was her first time. Her husband bought her a table saw and she took it from there! They are beautiful! And she said it was super easy. What a difference they've made....very elegant, too. She's always doing a project and I urge her to put it on Hometalk but she doesn't.
