A lightweight cotton material or something solid in appearance or use of patterns and stripes comes handy for this. Swag valance, another type of valance, is mostly used with a lightweight fabric but may also be used with a heavy fabric. The swag valance can be extended short to the floor followed by pooling into a little pile. The fabric is folded as per the style width rays and is later draped across the decorative brackets; the swag is then hoisted in an upward direction on each of its sides by decorative brackets. The center portion needs to be supported with a discreet bracket and pin, in the window is wide and the weight is resulting in a swoop.

The pleated valance is hanged by making the use of a frame made from two-by-four board along with an L-bracket to generate a shelf-alike look at top of the window. You can then staple the fabric to the shaped board and the board may then be hanged onto the brackets. There are different valances for sunrooms, which can meet your needs and likings.
