The window Cornice is best known for its ability to hide hardware above a window from the top of a shade or drapery. The once predominate feature is becoming less common in households today, but still holds great value and beauty when applied to a space. Along with hiding hardware, a cornice can dress up a window or door as well as elongate them depending on its placement.
With the many different styles of cornices, you can come up with a variety of different looks for your space. Most of our clients we work with are using the arched fabric wrapped cornice or the sleek wooden cornices.
Another highlight about a cornice is how easy it is to put them on or off as well as cleaning. If it is a fabric you can take your vacuum extension (if you can reach the cornice) and brush over it lightly. As for wood, a long duster works great as well.
A cornice can be created during the design of a shade or treatment or any time after. We do not recommend getting the cornice before your treatments because the cornice may need to have a large depth to cover everything and frame the area.
