Mounting Brackets and L-BracketsMounting Brackets
All Cornice Kits and 2-Piece Extension Kits come with standard 5" mounting brackets. The 5" bracket is normally adequate for mini-blinds, verticals, and a standard drapery rod.
If you would prefer your cornice to be closer to the wall, we offer a 3" bracket. The 3" bracket looks nice over windows with recessed or no blinds. To accomodate the 3" bracket, we simply remove 2 inches from the end of the end caps (returns).
If you have shutters, we recommend placing the cornice just above the point where your shutter will open. Many people prefer a 3" bracket with shutters to shorten the cornice distance from the wall.
Our brackets are made specifically for our cornices. The brackets have a lip that fits in the tuck grove in the back of the cornice - the same groove that the fabric is tucked into. Once the brackets have been mounted to the wall, simply push the cornice onto them. The cornice will fit snuggly to ensure stability.
