Top Treatments & Cornices

Blinds & Designs of Florida provides custom Top Treatments and Cornices for residential and commercial customers in the Sarasota area. All are custom-made to complement your style and available with many options to choose from.

Top Treatments

A simple accent has a big effect, and top treatments add instant, elegant presence to your windows. When paired with draperies and curtains, valances complete a look. However, they are perfectly stunning on their own, letting all the natural light shine through. Only covering the top portion of windows, valances still allow you to thoroughly enjoy the beauty of outside from the comfort of your own home. The cherry on top of your windows, they make them appear taller, add depth and detail, conceal drapery hardware, and hide architectural flaws like uneven window height. Valances also offer the chance to display your unique design personality. Choose a bright, cheerful fabric if you dare to be bold or add softness to your surroundings with more neutral, traditional fabric.


Fashionable solutions that are diverse and versatile

Create your own coordinated look by taking inspiration from the colors in your décor, like rugs, bed coverings, furnishings, etc. Valances also make it easy to introduce different hues and tones into a room. For example, easily add throw pillows in the same color or pattern as your top treatment for a new, cohesive appearance.  They are available in a variety of installations, including board, pole and rod-pocket mounted. The style choices are both beautiful and functional, from swags and cascades to gathered, pleated, and tailored valances. Add special touches like decorative piping, beads, sashes, or fringe details to give your top treatment another layer of interest. Top treatments are as diverse as they are versatile.

A cornice, meaning “ledge” in Italian, is a decorative molding that crowns a window, door, or wall. Unlike many window treatments, cornices are not about addressing sun control or privacy; instead, they “finish” the design of a window. They provide an eye-catching focal point in any room, whether wood, upholstered, soft or metal. Wood cornices can add architectural detail and transport a room into royalty. The wood can be painted or stained, matching the color of existing trim and crown molding. Fabric-covered cornices can seamlessly match any décor, blending with bed coverings, walls, rugs, furniture, etc. due to the endless variety of colors, solids, patterns, and textures. An arched, scalloped, or shaped cornice will beautifully follow the shape of a window without masking it.


Available in a variety of sizes

Each choice will change the look and feel of the interior, adding another dimension of detail. Add stencils, appliques, ruffles, tassels, fringe detail, etc. for a completely personalized look. Not only do cornices add a bold design element; they also conceal head rails, hardware, and architectural flaws such as an uneven window height or an imperfect window frame. These window treatments can be a great solution for those areas that cannot accommodate a full drapery panel, such as a bathroom and kitchen, but still provide the beauty of fabric, nonetheless.
