Modern cornices in the interior: photo and configuration
Depending on its configurationThe cornices are round, string, stick, profile. A round cornice can be made of a metal, wooden or plastic rod, which rests on the brackets fixed to the ceiling. String cornice, respectively, is a thin string stretched between two fasteners. But these cornices are designed only for decoration with light curtains.
The beam cornices resemble strings very much, but instead of the string itself or the line, a metal long tube. And profile cornices are a whole system. In this system, tracks for runners, and stubs, latches, control mechanism. It can be single-row cornices or multi-row. Single rows are suitable for simple curtains, and multi-row will withstand tulle, and curtains with lambrequin.
In the form of the cornices are angular, straight, rounded and with rounded corners. Convenient are corner cornices, rounded structures are used in rooms where there are rounded niches. And cornices with rounded corners give a close fit of the curtains to the window. Well, a simple straight cornice is an option for all types of curtains with a lift.
Why you need a hidden cornice
A hidden cornice is used quite often - it dictates or a functional need, or some design-reception. Usually, such a closed cornice is used in conjunction with tension ceilings. It is convenient and non-traumatic for the canvas.
Sometimes the room needs to be transformed, that is, to strengthen its design. That is, the fabric that hangs above the window is visible, but how it was possible to hang the fabric is unclear. This trick attracts attention. Usually make the cornice hidden helps drywall. And with this material you can cover not only the level supports.
Drywall can make a concealed curtain rod for:
- U-shaped fastening;
But sometimes you do not need to go the complicated way, a fairly wide hidden cornice - this can be a framed cornice. It is a lining made of wood, plastic or metal, other non-standard materials can be used. Such a cornice can be hung in the kitchen, in the living room, in the bedroom.

You can close any curtain rod, the same string or round, with a baghouse bar. Usually the design is three kinds of strings or grooves in the profile of plastic, wood, metal. This plank is quite wide.
Popular manufacturing materials:
- The tree is a traditional option. It is suitable for both classical style and rustic, but also more restrained modern solutions are also supported. If it is a baguette made of natural wood, then it is usually treated with special impregnations, and varnished. It is worth this option is more expensive than others, but it looks more luxurious.
- Plastic. Plastic framed cornices are very popular, you can choose any sizes. For the price they are affordable, beautiful, design options are also sufficient. The most popular white cornice.
- Metal. Such baguette cornices are less common. Usually they are used in the style of techno, high-tech. These are strong, lightweight structures, and thanks to the treatment with special compounds, they are also not exposed to corrosion.
Important point - the decoration of the baguette straps. The opinion of more than one designer shows that the types of such finishes can play an important role in the interior. Used stucco, inlay, fabric upholstery, metal, ceramic and glass inserts, as well as gilding.
Color solutions for the ceiling molding
Again, much depends on the style of the room. If you are an English-style devotee in the interior, or prefer a country - the best solution will be a wooden cornice. The color of the strip is recommended to make contrast with respect to the decoration of the walls, it should be in the tone of the curtains. Or vice versa, it is contrasted to curtains, but in tone to the decoration of walls.
The color of the bar must normally be consonant with one of the shades of curtain fabric. Or not necessarily curtains, it can be other elements of the interior. Everything should be in one style. If the room is in a provencal aesthetic, the baguette with inlay can be completely out of the question. You can pick up and some kind of soft option, when the baguette is not so decorated.
Cornice and ceiling skirting: is there any relationship
The last years have become very popular ceiling skirtings. Polyurethane, polystyrene constructions, plinths of foam plastic, as well as wooden fillets on the ceiling are made. Any width, choice of color and material, the ability to lengthen one skirting board to another - there are a lot of options.
The question is: should such a plinth be combined with a cornice?Of course. Especially stylistically. Roughly speaking, if the cornices-podgardinniki or brackets are strict metal, and the plinths are foam plastic with ornate pattern, you need to do something with this design turn, the difference can "cut" your eyes.
By the way, ceiling skirting:
- Can be glued to the rounded wall elements;
- Can be coated with water-based or oil paint;
- Withstands and wet cleaning, without changing its color;
- Simulates and stucco, and complex patterns, and ornament.
If, say, the cornice is narrow, and the baseboard is wide - this will also be disharmonious. Look for matches, so that in general, the top of the room was not massive due to the very bright cornice and plinth. Especially in the event that the floor is "bare", and looks on the background of the decorated top somehow uncomfortable.
