What is the design benefit of using cornices?

Our Parkland® Wood Cornices provide a finishing touch to your window treatment. Besides looking elegant, cornices offer a much-needed measure of structural focus to any living space. More specifically, the placement of a cornice above a window frame tends to attract the eye upward, adding further height and space to your room.


Hunter Douglas cornices are available in six profiles, so coordinating with your room's interior décor is trouble-free. With several colors and stains, your options are virtually endless. Take your pick: You can blend with your wall color or add an accent shade to your window design.
