Full Window Valences

Has anyone cut off the bottom part of their window valences? My wife hates the way the bottoms collect dust, and aside from keeping the dogs toys from falling behind the couch, they seem to serve no useful purpose. She'd like to have the bottom and half the sides cut off. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Yes, they are dust collectors. However, they block the dust from just settling behind the couch. Most upgrades to coaches include going from partial valances and lambrequins to full ones, like ours. It is considered higher end. It also reduces the cheaper look of exposed window frames. If you've seen lower end coaches, they often have the short-legged variety and just don't look as "finished". BTAIM, your wife's opinion will trump if you want peace in the coach.
