What is the difference between the crown valance and the cornice style valance?
Crown Valance

Crown valances simply refer to the style or contour of the valance material used. The majority of our wood blinds and faux wood blinds come with a free crown valance. The standard crown valance sits inside the window frame with the blinds.

Cornice Style Valance

A cornice style valance is a crown molding valance but offers an outside mount style valance on inside mount blinds. What this means is the valance is designed wider than the window frame and had sides or returns to create a cornice look at the top of the venetian blinds. Each of our cornice style valances are made from a crown valance. Because the cornice style valance is wider than the window we do not recommend choosing this free upgrade if you have any obstructions around your window such as existing molding, trim, walls, or cabinets.
