For a little more architectural interest, you can step it up and choose a cornice instead. Cornices have a boxy support structure underneath the fabric to create an extra frame around the window. This can add visual appeal to a room by using breadth and depth to balance height. Cornices aren’t right for every window, and they usually need a bit of breathing room with long walls and tall ceilings; you don’t want a boxy window frame to make your room look smaller. However, cornices are a beautiful solution to smooth, square rooms that need a little something extra.
