Custom Cornices

Cornices are a type of window treatment that typically consist of a wooden or foam board mounted treatment that is covered in fabric and mounted above the window and frames it. They can be used to add a decorative touch to a room and can also be used to conceal window hardware such as blinds or shades. Used originally to cover the bulky unsightly hardware in the days of old , they are now used to punctuate the design of a window. Cornices are now statement pieces and soften the hard edges of the bare window and adds elegance and sometimes a splash of color.

Cornices are typically used in combination with a drapery and sheers.

When choosing cornices for a room, it is important to consider the overall style and color scheme of the space. For example, a neutral-colored cornice can be a great way to add texture to a room without overwhelming it, while a brightly-colored cornice can be used to add a pop of color and create a focal point. The pattern on the cornice should also complement the existing patterns in the room.

The size and shape of the cornice are also important to consider when decorating a room. A larger cornice can be used to add more visual impact to a room, while a smaller cornice can be used to create a more subtle effect. The cornice shape can also be adjusted to match the window shape and size.

Cornices can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, foam board, and even PVC. They can be covered with fabric, paint, or wallpaper. This way they can match the room style, color scheme and design.

When hanging cornices, it is important to make sure they are properly measured and installed. This includes making sure they are level and that they are hung at the appropriate height.

In conclusion, decorating a room with cornices can be a great way to add a decorative touch to a space while also providing functional benefits such as light control and privacy. By considering the overall style and color scheme of the room, as well as the size, shape, and materials of the cornice, it is possible to create a beautiful and cohesive design that enhances the look and feel of the room.
