Cornice and Valances

adds texture, color, and pattern to the top of a window

A Cornice or Valance Adds the Finishing Touch to Any Room

Alone or combined with your current window coverings, valances and cornices add a punch of color or interest to your window. With the right style, fabric and decorative hardware you can really bring the room together.

What’s the Difference Between a Cornice and Valance?

It is pretty straight forward. Valances have a wood top board with fabric front and sides whereas cornices are constructed of wood on all sides. Valances are more unconstructed and can add softness. Cornices, on the other hand, are sleek and offer a clean look. So whether your valances are mounted on a board or hung from beautiful hardware, or your valance’s main purpose is to conceal unwanted hardware, we can make it a one-of-a-kind treatment that will make your friends and family jealous!

Cornices are a great way to finish  your curtains without a lot of fuss – they are clean and simple and can hide unsightly hardware or wall imperfections. Depending on your choice of fabrics your cornices can be modern, contemporary, southwestern, or casual. Our design consultants can help you make the right choice for your cornices to achieve the look you want. We can custom make the bottom shape to complement your personal style. The most popular styles are:

Styles of Cornices

  • Straight
  • Scallop
  • Diamond
  • Arched

Note: If you have windows and doors at different heights in the same room, cornices can be a great way to disguise it. By mounting them all at the same height, it will not be evident that the tops underneath are different.


Let your mind run wild when it comes to creating a unique and interesting valance. Here are a few of the most popular styles:
