A variety of decorative ribbon bandings are available to further customize your slimline cornice. Our ribbon banding offerings have been carefully selected to match any of our fabrics from our fabric collection. Ribbon banding will be placed at the bottom edge of your cornice; stripped banding will run horizontally when applied.
Self welt is a 1/4" welt that will be placed along the bottom edge and can be ordered in the same fabric or a contrasting fabric. Welt will add up 1/2" on each side of your cornice width.
Enter the dimensions for your custom design in inches. When ordering your cornice we suggest planning to mount your cornice approximately 1 1/2" above the window opening or undertreatment. Take the width measurement of the opening or outside mounted treatment that cornice will be mounted over and add at least 1" to the width to provide operating clearance. When mounting over another window treatment, order clearance depth at least 1" greater than the "flush mount depth" of the undertreatment. Your upholstered cornice will arrive 2" wider than the ordered width due to the thickness of the cornice. Your ordered width will be the inside measurement of the cornice.
Inside mount cornices can be mounted over blinds or shades to cover the headrail of your window treatment. The look is neat, clean and uncluttered. There will be a deduction of 1/4" off ordered width. You also want to consider the thickness of selected fabric which can add from 1/8" to 1/4" to overall width.
Outside mount cornices will add substance to your windows. Cornices have a dustcap and returns that wrap to the wall. The backside and dustcap are covered in a white privacy lining, and cornices are available with 1/2" welt cord along bottom edge.
For Inside Mount, your cornices will have no returns and the clearance of your dust cap is customizable from 2" - 8" deep.
Clearance depth refers to the amount of space between your wall and the back of your valance. This information is important when ordering cornices as Outside Mount over other window treatments, or to clear your molding. The available clearance is listed below.
