Since there is no need to glue or staple the fabric to the cornice, you are able to change the color/pattern of the fabric as often as you change the decor in your home - it's like having a whole new cornice!
Light weight, expanded polystyrene (Styrofoam) sections are simply glued together with a full sized low temperature glue gun (200 - 250 degrees Fahrenheit) to create your special cornice for any size window or door. Watch our to see how it's done.
We do not recommend using a mini glue gun because you will not be able to apply enough glue quick enough to achieve a good bond.

What if I have a Bay Window?
Installing a continuous cornice on both of the windows in a corner could be very tricky because of cutting the Styrofoam angles to match the angle in the corner.
Our Corner Window Adapters are unique; this is the only easy solution to that tricky corner window dilemma. Our Corner Window Adapters make it super easy to accommodate those tough to measure angles.
Our Corner Window Adapters are used for a full 90 degree angle in a corner window.
For A Corner Window
Looking at the finished Corner Cornice above, measure (from left to right):
Since the Corner Window Adapter is 16", subtract 16":
120" - 16" = 104"
And finally, we need to take into consideration the brackets. If you order 5" brackets, then we subtract 10"; if you order 3" brackets, subtract 6".
So if you order 5" brackets for this example, then:
104" - 10" = 94"
Therefore, you would order a Cornice Kit for 80"-96" openings PLUS your Corner Window Adapter.
If you wish to substitute 3" brackets for the 5" brackets that come with the kits, check Substitute 3" brackets. Learn more about choosing 3" and 5" brackets .
Some customers save their scrap pieces and unused pieces from previous cornice projects, and just need to order mounting brackets (see above) and End Caps.
