A quick, easy and inexpensive step in remodeling a room is adding custom built in windows and doors. The use of this style can dramatically change the look of a space. Custom built in windows and door is designed to hide such things as blind hardware and curtain hardware. The first attention in adding a cornice is what wood species should it be built from and does the finish need to painted or stained. Generally whether the blinds are white then the cornice is also painted white and if the blinds are stained the cornice is stained to match. Every space has a focal point, so make yours a wood window cornice.
Now let’s talk about sizing. Whether you have blinds that are mounted inside the window frame then adding two inches to the total width of the window casing will give you enough cleaning. Using curtains requires two metering considerations, how long is the curtain rod and how far does the curtain rod extend away from the wall. Adding four inches to the length of the curtain rod and two inches to the depth of the curtain rod will specify the opening width of a custom built cornice.
