Cornice Boxes are a great way to add style to the top of your window for a reasonable cost. They can be made of wood and painted or stained or they can be fabric wrapped, as in this video. This cornice box was sourced from Century Shade and Blind Company. They offer the cornice box in 4″, 6″ and 8″ options. The one in the video is 6″. The return sizes can be ordered at various depths. It can be ordered with a contrasting horizontal banding as well. Depending on the style you need, this can be a useful solution.
If they are made completely custom, then you can certainly make them in any size, depth, width and height that you wish. I’ve done cornice boxes as small as 4″ and as tall as 60″. It all depends on the specific needs of the client.
Are cornice boxes the right choice for your window? They can be good for many people who are looking for a sleek and clean look for their top treatments. We tend to do them in homes that are looking for simple lines and that lean toward a modern, mid-century modern, contemporary, sleek and transitional styles. Your best bet is to consult with a window fashions expert to know which is best look for you.
