You definitely don’t think “your grandma’s house” when you take a look at these beautifully designed cornice boards. I have been using these as a part of my window treatments lately. They can add so much to a room. They complete the idea of a window treatment, and often allow for a way to “hide” the mechanics of draperies. On larger window expanses, you often need traversing rods for functional draperies, and without a decorative rod, these are often less than beautiful. Cornices are a way to hide the top of draperies, and provide a beautiful, clean, and artistic look. Another key to modernizing a cornice is to use a tape applied topically, a trim, or even nailhead application. Take a glance at some of these to inspire you in your own space!
