What Rod Placement with Large Window Moldings?

Good Questions

Q: I live in an old Victorian style home that was built in 1901 and later converted to apartments. The window moldings match the period and are about 6 inches tall. I'm not sure where to hang curtains or valances.

I would like to hang a valance in my kitchen, but am not sure if I should cover the molding completely or hang the valance lower so you see the molding above it. In my living room, I just want to hang one sheer over each window and am again wondering where I should place the rod.
