The Finishing Touch: Custom-Made Wood Valances
Looking for a simple way to dress up your windows? Consider adding a custom-made wood valance or cornice box and you will add the finishing touch you’ve been looking for. From paint to stain colors and from simple horizontal lines to curves that emulate your favorite piece of furniture and from southwestern corbels to the more formal look of crown molding, and from cutouts with inserts of twigs to match your Ernest Thompson Sombraje Shutter, or fabrics inserts to match your upholstery, or copper or tin punch inserts – the possibilities are endless.
Basswood is an excellent choice for material as it is a hardwood, but is also light in weight and will take either a painted or stained finish well.
Custom wood valances are perfect by themselves or they will add a finished look to draperies – covering up the rod when the drapes are open. They will also neatly cover horizontal shades or horizontal blinds when they are raised to let the light into your space. To eliminate unsightly cords that dangle on the floor when your window coverings are fully raised, consider using Hunter Douglas PowerRise® with Platinum™ Technology battery-powered system or the Hunter Douglas LiteRise® cordless system.
Your custom-made wood valance or wood cornice box will be made to measure from the width to the height and depth so it will give your windows that finishing touch you’ve been looking for.
