Decorative Window Cornices Enhance The Look Of Your Room
One way to keep alive the style and decor of a more refined time is to add window cornices to your home. Window Cornices are ornamental framework of wood or composition to which window curtains are attached by rods with rings or hooks. Window cornices say so much about a home’s inhabitants, particularly that they pay careful attention to detail and they enjoy the kind of finishing touches that other sophisticated people notice, enjoy and appreciate. There are window cornices available for every kind of style and taste. Whether a home is more traditional and classic and something tasteful yet ornate is preferred, or a home is more modern and something sleek and minimal is more appropriate, there are many options available.
The most basic design of window cornices is an open rectangular box, made of three sides, leaving one length free. This structure fits on top of the window, with the closed length facing the ceiling. The drapes or curtains are fitted within this, and fall through the open length. Detailing can be added at the edges to add to the design element. The cornice is often covered with fabric to match the upholstery in a room, hence giving it a co-ordinated feel. Many people choose to add them to give their rooms a finished look and feel.
