What is decorative moulding?
Moulding adds a finished look to your walls and floors. When we talk about decorative mouldings, we are referring to any moulded feature or any feature designed to look as if it has been moulded – whether fixed to a wall or ceiling for decoration. This includes the parts that cover joints between different surfaces, such as the ceiling and wall.
Coving and Cornice
Coving or cornice refers to the moulding strips used to cover the joins between the ceiling and the wall. In the USA, these are often referred to as Crown Mouldings. Cornice is similar to coving although it tends to be more decorative, often with patterns carved into the moulding and with varying projection/drop dimensions. Architectural cornices add that extra detail and definition to the space such as those on offer HERE from Supreme Mouldings.
Cornices are a great way to add an elegant touch to your walls and ceilings. It draws the eye upwards and enhances your space with a beautiful architectural detail.
Skirting, also known as Skirting Boards cover the joins between the floor and wall. The main function of a skirting board is to protect walls from damage. Walls are particularly vulnerable to knocks and scuffs around their base as people in the home go about their daily lives. Skirting boards act as a barrier that stops plaster from being cracked or broken. Skirtings come in a variety of colours, designs and sizes. This means you have the opportunity to customise your space and choose a finish that suits you.
