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.
Drapery and curtains are two entirely different sets of window treatments in interior design; though the terms are often used interchangeably. Drapery refers to pleated panels that hang from decorative rods or poles. This type of window treatment is moveable and can be opened during the day and closed in the evening.
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.
