The cornice is a padded box that is covered in fabric and if desired, a type of trim. The edges can be shaped, such as scalloped, rounded or straight. These are often favored because they can help to conceal any existing hardware that is used to hang other window treatments, thus providing a more seamless overall look in a room.
Good window treatments should be designed to suit not only the windows but they should blend with the rest of the décor of the room and create a sense of interweaved design. A badly chosen and placed window treatment could stand out like an eye sore in an otherwise attractive room.
Traditional treatments can range from long, draping curtains to vertical slats. It's mostly a matter of personal taste. They are often tied to the sides but can operate on horizontal sliders or be pulled straight up. Traditional styles may also encompass prints, usually floral and understated. Sheers and heavy fabrics may be combined or used separately, but often traditional styles blend usability with decoration in a very versatile way.
