Base Valances

Base Valance Information

Base valances are made with a straight skirt with kick pleats and provide a decorative cover for a divan base. They fit in-between the divan base and the mattress with the platform (which sits on top of the divan base, underneath the mattress) made from lining fabric with a 15cm fabric border around the edges.

Base Valances are made in the following sizes to fit standard-sized divan bases.

Single (192 cm long x 92 cm wide)
Double (192 cm long x 137 cm wide)
King (199 cm long x 152 cm wide)
Superking (199 cm long x 184 cm wide)

As divan height varies from bed to bed the drop is made to your measurements. Please see below for measuring instructions.

How To Measure

Base valances are made to standard 'platform' sizes but the drop is made to suit your divan base as sizes can vary.

Firstly determine what size of base valance you require to fit your divan base.

Single (192 cm long x 92 cm wide)
Double (192 cm long x 137 cm wide)
King (199 cm long x 152 cm wide)
Superking (199 cm long x 184 cm wide)

Secondly determine the drop required. Measure form the top of the base to the floor and deduct one centimetre for clearance from the floor. Please note you should always measure from the top of the base valance to the floor - not from the top of the mattress.
