Kingstons & Empires

What is the difference? These valance styles are very similar. The primary difference is in the pleat allowance. An Empire valance is pleated horizontally across the board. A Kingston valance is pleated vertically, with the pleats hidden behind the bells. Both styles are usually board mounted. However, both can be converted to a pole mount.
