Not all Bed Valances are suited to the accommodation industry. Many (quite possibly more than most people think) are cheap imported retail products, which are made for the lower end of the domestic market and cannot endure the tough conditions of the accommodation industry such as continual launderings or frequent bed movement.
A hotel Bed Valance must always present well with a neat fit. Beds should be allowed to be moved around without the valance being caught in the castors. The lining on top of the bed base should never be exposed. The product must be robust and the fabric should withstand continual commercial laundering with nil shrinkage.
