The Bind Connection is where many Colorado Springs residents get cornices and valances.

Are you confused about cornices and valances? You are not alone. Many people do not know the difference between a cornice and a valance. A cornice is hard, and a valance is soft. Cornices may be made completely of wood (as shown in the gallery above), or it may be covered in fabric. Valances are typically made completely of fabric. Many people use the words interchangibly, so you may call it whichever you want, and we will know what you are talking about.

Some people in Colorado Springs find window treatment hardware unattractive, and either a valance or a cornice can cover up a window treatment's hardware while finishes the look of a window.

Many interior decorators use cornices or vallances to add height to a room, or to create interest in a space that needs it. Cornices look great in rooms that have crown molding. Valances are a great way to soften a room. A wide range of fabric options can give you the look you want.
