Interior Design

When decorating a room, one of the easiest ways to express your personality is by the window treatments you choose. Whether simple or elaborate, opaque or solid, the fabrics and textures you select help make the room your own.

Creating a window treatmentcan be a lot of fun, and is not the difficult task many people think. In fact, one does not have to be a master interior designer to come up with a window treatment that is original, tasteful, and pleasing to the eye. The process can actually be very simple.

Cornice boards,despised in the seventies and eighties, are back in vogue for the new millennium. The great news about cornice boards is they do not have to be the heavy wooden boxes with all the intricate carving of yesteryear. In fact, they don't have to be made of wood at all.

Today, cornice board kits are available which include basic components made of Styrofoam. These pre cut pieces are ideal to use when the object is to create a padded cornice board. After assembling your Styrofoam frame according to the kit's instructions, cover the frame with batting. Rolls of batting can be purchased at any craft shop and many discount stores. To secure to the frame, try some fabric glue and perhaps a staple or two. The use of hot glue is discouraged, as it can melt the Styrofoam, leaving your frame distorted and less sturdy.
