Cornices are a box-like wooden valance mounted to the wall above your windows, providing a more formal look than soft window treatments alone and providing architectural interest to rooms that may lack it. Calico in-store or in-home consultants will be happy to show you how to make the most of your windows – explaining how best to use valances and swags, cornices, and helping you select trim and hardware. And as always, their advice is free.
Calico offers cornices these options:
Cornice fabrics may be railroaded (turned sideways) to avoid seams, but should not be combined with a drapery (from the same fabric) that is not railroaded.
Add at least 4″ to face width and 2″ to returns of any under-treatment for proper clearance.
