Step 1. Know the size of your bed.
Knowing the size of your bed is crucial when buying any bedding product, whether it be quilt covers or sheets. You can either look at the tag of your mattress or you can measure the bed yourself. It is always recommended even if your mattresses tag mentions the size of your bed that you measure your bed to ensure you get the right size bedding. Here are the average sizes for the different sizes of beds:
Single beds are around 90cm x 190cm
King Single beds are around 110cm x 200cm
Double beds are around 140cm x 190cm
Queen beds are around 150cm x 200cm
King beds are around 180cm x 200cm
By knowing the size of your bed, you can easily choose the right size valance for you.
Step 2. Decide on what type of valance you would need.
There are a few different types of valances you can get, and the best one for you depends on your needs. Let's take a look at some of the options.
