Enhance Your Home with Mouldings

Any new home can be enriched and enhanced with the right combination of mouldings. To choose your mouldings with confidence you will want to make design choices that are appropriate to your architectural style, décor and personal taste. For instance, a contemporary home may not be conducive to detailed and intricate moulding profiles.

Other points to consider are room sizes and ceiling heights, furniture, fixtures and colors. The size and shape of the moulding should be appropriate and proportional for the room and home. But don’t underestimate the amount of mouldings that rooms can accommodate- many crowns and substantial casings and baseboards often make rooms appear higher and larger.

You may also want to consider using mouldings to add a personal touch to areas such as foyers and hallways. These featured areas often incorporate the basic mouldings in your rooms but may add additional layers, panels, or ceiling detail. Other focus areas may include elements such as columns, arches, fireplaces or window groupings.

A great resource for moulding ideas and design is your builder. The professional custom builder will have the experience and expertise to transform your vision into reality. Another valuable tool is your moulding supplier. They have the know-how and means to help you visualize your ultimate moulding objective. Your trim is an important component of your home, giving it the character you desire and the uniqueness of those who chose it!
