Benefits of Adding Cornices

If you’re thinking of adding decorative elements to your room while covering up a window treatment’s unsightly control mechanism, a cornice might be the right choice for you. Perhaps you purchased window treatments without thinking the hardware until the treatment was installed.

As you’ve probably noticed, the hardware can disrupt the room’s flow, which is where a cornice can help balance the window with the rest of the room. At Window products in Connecticut, our trained consultants will be happy to help you decide whether a cornice will be right for you.

Cornice Choices

There are two types of cornice. The first is the Soft Cornice, which is essentially a box covered in fabric that goes beyond the sides and bottom or padded box alone. Soft cornice possibilities are endless, with extensive choices in fabrics, trims, colors, and textures. The second type is the Hard Cornice, which is made from wood or faux wood materials, with no fabric. Hard cornices add a customized feel by blending in to your home’s structure. Hunter Douglas offers Parkland™ Wood Cornices that can add the finishing touch to your window treatment. They are available in six profiles that will coordinate with your room’s décor. Available in several colors and stains, your options are limitless—you can blend with your wall color or add an accent color.

One thing to consider if you’re thinking about adding a cornice is whether you want your window to stand out or blend in. Also remember that a cornice will immediately draw the eye upward, making the room seem larger.
