The Charm of Adding Custom Cornices for Your Windows

After spending days, maybe even weeks, trying to find the perfect cellular shades, faux blinds, or curtains, the last thing you want is to install them just to find the overhead hardware is ruining the aesthetics. Rather than allow a metal mounting system, curtain rings, or other unsightly parts to capture attention, consider window cornices.

Cornices are top window treatments that hover above your blinds, shades, or shutters, acting as a short drapery panel. They hide treatment hardware well while creating a seamless flow that hides the gap between the window and the wall. Plus, they have many other benefits.

Take your window treatments from drab to dreamy with this additional final step. We’ll help you learn more about cornices when you reach out!

How To Utilize Cornices for Windows

Wooden window cornices are the most popular, providing a polished appearance that complements any house style, from rustic to contemporary. They suit the color and texture of traditional and faux wood alongside polyvinyl window treatments, acting as an extension of the material. You can also order custom cornice treatments ranging from dark to light wood and glossy to flat finishes.

You can also choose a non-traditional wood color to match your current setup or cornice board designs to liven up a drab area.

However, if you want to soften harsh window lines but don’t want to change your window treatments to curtains or drapes, consider changing the topper to fabric cornice boxes instead. These upholstered cornices come in numerous styles, from a cascade, Bordeaux, and Charleston design with inner arches to soft dip or buttons and bells designs that are uniform in length throughout the product.


Cornices provide an incredibly finished look for any window. You can hide the pulls, cords, rods and lighting. Custom cornices from Window Expressions provide a smooth, elegant finish for your window treatments. Cornices can be done in Fabric or Wood and they work with draperies, blinds or shades.
