Pelmets, or cornice boards, have been used in interior design since the 15th century. The use of pelmets has stood the test of time because they bring benefits in both function and form.
Though beautiful, a pelmet is a remarkably practical room design feature. In fact, having pelmets can save you money on your heating bills.
The way we make a pelmet results in a ‘roof’ being placed over the top of the curtains or blinds. This barrier blocks the flow of warm air that would otherwise go over the top of the window treatments and be transferred to the cold window.
The lack of flow also prevents the cold air next to the window being pushed into the room as it is displaced by warm air from above. A pelmet keeps the warm air away from the window behind the blinds or curtain, resulting in less lost heat from your home.
Pelmets also help reduce the light coming into a room. If you have east- or west-facing windows, you know how bright the sun can be. A pelmet helps tone down that glare, resulting in a more pleasant living arrangement. Over time, the pelmet can also help prevent the fading of upholstery and increase the longevity of your furniture.
A pelmet is also a lovely decorative feature, giving a finished appearance to any room. The pelmet frames your curtains or blinds, while beautifully hiding the hardware associated with the rod or tracks. It also makes the window look taller and more elegant. This window dressing can play a critical role in the success of your interior design scheme.
