When you think moulding, you probably think of the more basic applications in the home; crown, baseboard, and trim. However, moulding is an extremely versatile home accessory with a wide variety of applications. Aside from the varying styles and wood types, moulding has more options than you can imagine. Here are some examples of different ways architectural moulding can be used throughout the home that you may not have considered.
Accentuate ceiling features such as ceiling fans or lighting fixtures using a medallion. Although this example is ornate, medallions can range in style from extravagant to minimalistic.
Wainscoting is a beautiful way to break up large empty walls by creating an interesting contrast through the horizontal division of the wall. Wainscoting is more than decorative however; it can protect walls from damage in heavier trafficked areas, and at the right height the cap works as a chair rail in the kitchen.
A fireplace is a cozy and homey addition to any home, but improperly adorned, it can appear out of place or disproportionate to the rest of the room. Decorative wooden mantels, whether simplistic or ornate, can make a fireplace the aesthetic focal point of a room while maintaining visual balance.
Whether you want to create a beautiful entranceway framed by classic columns, or you’re finishing your basement as a living space, moulding can help create the space you’re looking for. Use wood moulding to cover ugly metal support beams in a finished basement to ensure the whole space feels finished.
Moulding isn’t just for inside the home. Use it to add personal and unique flair to landscaping projects like arbors or as an aesthetic and functional component to your patio or deck.
Use crown moulding to create unique shelves that are both functional and stunning.
Nothing can quite give a room grandeur like a ceiling with milled wood moulding ceilings. From old world elegance to modern simplicity, architectural moulding ceilings make a room stand out among the rest as spectacular.
