Since opening our doors in 1957, Pugerudes has been designing and fabricating custom cornices and valances for clients throughout the Greater Seattle area, including Auburn, Federal Way, Renton (including Fairwood), Maple Valley, Black Diamond, Normandy Park, Newcastle, Covington and Des Moines.
Cornices and valances are top treatments that can be combined with curtains, draperies, shades and blinds. They can also be used by themselves to dress up a window that doesn’t require light control or privacy. If you find a fabric you love, but it’s too costly to use for full-length window treatments, a cornice or valance is the perfect way to include it in your décor without blowing your budget.
Cornices and valances each offer a different look for your windows. Cornices are generally made of plywood that is covered with batting and fabric for a sturdy, formal look. These top treatments are perfect for traditional dining rooms or living rooms. Cornices can also be made of a higher quality wood, then stained or painted and mounted without any fabric.
Valances are made with fabric that hangs on a rod like a curtain or drape. They can be formal, with pleated tops and crisp edges, or more casual, with soft folds of fabric that hang from a rod on rings or ribbon. Valances can also be made more whimsical by adding finishing touches like buttons, tassels or trims.
When you are ready to combine a top treatment with existing window coverings or create a whole new look for your windows, Pugerudes can help. Over the years, we have designed and worked with thousands of styles and fabrics, so whether you are looking for something new and innovative or something tried and true, we can turn your vision into reality.
