|There isn't a window that can't benefit from a custom top treatment for a finished look.
Valances and cornices are a great way to make a design statement,
whether they coordinate with
the rest of your room's fabrics, or stand out on their own.
Think of your blinds or shades as a Little Black Dress -
and top treatments as the 'wow' jacket you put over it to

|You've probably already heard some designer terms for top treatments -
but basically, top treatments fall into two categories - cornices or valances.
Cornices are made of either stained or painted wood (generally, crown molding),
or are a wood frame essentially 'upholstered' with padding and fabric.
Valances are a fabric treatment, either shirred on or hung from a drapery rod,
or top-mounted to a board frame, with the bottom hanging freely.
