Valances and Cornice Boards

Soft Valances and top treatments go with draperies, side panels, or as a stand-alone, depending on your vision for the room. The MYL Advantage offers 55 pre-priced treatments to choose from. Or simply send a picture or sketch for an MYL estimate. We want to keep you in control of your design and will partner with you for the fabrication!

Custom Cornices are one of our specialties! Our Custom Classics Program has 28 standard scallops to choose from. However, we will scallop to your sketch at no extra charge. There are also ten specialty Cornices that are charted for price and yardage. Trims, banding, nail head, and custom designs are also available with an MYL estimate.
