What Are Cornices?

Table of Contents

Looking to add a splash or color or texture to your home in a distinctive and stunning way? Consider adding cornices.

Cornices are decorative moldings which can be placed over windows and doors. First used in ancient Rome and Greece, they were originally designed for exterior use – providing ornamental decoration as well as acting in a functional capacity to redirect rainwater. 

Over the years, the purpose and decorative nature of cornices have morphed into the exquisite window accessory they are today. At Window Expressions, cornices are custom crafted to offer versatility and to match any home or room style.
