What are Custom Wood Cornices?


A cornice is any flat decorative frame that crowns an element of your homes like a window or a door. They are the perfect solution for a window that needs an attractive touch. A natural wooden cornice offers a cultured look that is sure to complement any window covering. These custom wood cornices are made of high-end quality wood that results in superior durability and long-lasting elegance. These are perfect for banquet halls, living rooms, dining rooms, family rooms, and other social spaces. Pick from either painted or stained wood to merge with your decor.

When you choose to garnish a window, it doesn’t have to end at the window treatment. Fixing wooden cornices supplements another layer to the design element that can complement or contrast with other factors in the room.

Some tips for buying great valances and cornices include measuring accurately, acknowledging the existing qualities of the window and the interiors, and selecting the right style.

Cornices are the ideal choice for many rooms and fashions. Wood cornices can be an immediate focal point in a room. Real wood cornices are the excellent way to add rich, layered design to your window blinds. These cornices will cover unpleasant curtain rods and add a sense of custom-made appearance that makes an ordinary window or patio door looks distinguished.

Select a style that will fit your decor and help accent your existing window treatments. As a layered top treatment, fabric valances can be used to create a contrast with hard window coverings for a flowing, drapery effect. Also consider utilizing a patterned cornice over a neutral covered treatment, or vice versa, for a striking, bold statement. Valances and cornices are also amazingly useful at hiding distracting drapery hardware or unsightly headrails.

Make a Style Statement

The broader the cornice you install, the more striking it will be, so you should only choose a broad one if you are ok for it to stand out and be noticed. Striking patterns will also make a cornice more noticeable.

Maintain the Style of Your Room

Cornices suit most rooms, but they are particularly suited to classical and traditional interiors. Traditional interiors are about poise, elegance, and embellishment, so not only are cornices pretty much a must, but you can get crazy and creative with fabric colors and patterns, from the geometric to the floral.

Keep Things Simple

Small and simple cornices go perfectly well with almost any interior. They offer a fine finish, and they also provide a pleasing shift from the colored wall to plain a white ceiling.

Decorative Wood Cornice

Wooden Cornice Boards

Like many home decorative concepts, many buyers use the words “cornice” and “valance” interchangeably. Though both are window treatment solutions that cover the top section of your window, the decorative wood cornice board is made up of solid material like wood which is further coated or covered with fabrics or trims to coordinate with the window treatments. The fabric is extended and hand-stapled to a box made of wood that is then hung on your wall above the window. Cornices are used to disguise curtain rods and other window treatment hardware that can give an unpleasant appearance to your window.

Unique and Natural Characteristics of Graber Wood Cornices

The wood used to construct Graber wood cornices has natural properties which make them truly unique and special. The artistic wood grains show the direction, size, and the look of wood fibers which differ greatly depending on where the wood is taken from the tree. This creates a pattern that is rare and unique for every product. The growth on the outer edge of the tree known as burl magnifies the beauty of the product as well. Natural designs are also made on the surface of the custom wood cornice board where fibers are twisted to form circular shapes that resemble a birds’ eye. ‘Pin knots’ wood patterns add to the visual interest, as they can differ in size, structure, shape, and color. All these markings and patterns will give a natural difference in color and grain, magnifying the intrinsic beauty of the natural wood. They do not hinder the structural wholeness or endurance of the wood in any way. These wood cornices are quality guaranteed by Graber and covered under manufacturer warranty.
