Do you have a view taken further back in the room so we can see what the window is like in the room ? Also what style are you trying to achieve?

Doesn't matter the style, I just bought all leather furniture the room opens up to the kitchen so will need to change those too

Would it be easier if I took the currant curtains down? We have a great view of hills from the windows, we however need to keep the sunshades or something that can be pulled down as the windows face south and when the sun is out we get very hot in the room,I'm told my style is traditional

The valance that you currently have accentuates horizontal lines. I would definitely take it down. You need to have floor length drapery panels each side of your windows to introduce some vertical lines and add to the illusion of height. You could do woven shades or solar shades underneath to control light.
Valances on their own do very little for a window or the rooms architecture.

I would just remove the valance and use the shades you have and nothing else. Or try wide wood slat blinds in white which are very traditional.

Thank you for your comments, for the sunshades underneath, when I take the valance down especially for the window over the fireplace you will see the roller of the sunshade any thought how to hide it

You could make a tailored valance that is an inside mount with a tension cafe rod just enough to cover the roller -- not more than 2 inches past the roller. Make it out of white linen or other light fabric so that the light is not blocked at all.
