kitchen window cornice valance box made of mdfTraditional Style

A window valance box — more properly called a pelmet — is perfect for hiding your blinds’ ugly roll up mechanism.

We built this one for our small kitchen window for just that reason.  It’s really easy to make, and considering how inexpensive the materials are, you could have one on every window!
