Any home can be enriched and enhanced with the installation of decorative mouldings.You’ll be amazed how a home can look more luxurious with the simple addition of wider casings, deeper baseboards, crown mouldings, and a chair rail.
- Baseboard Mouldings
This moulding is installed at the bottom of a wall against the flooring to cover the gap between the two surfaces. A typical home uses baseboards from 2″ to 6″ deep from top to bottom.
This moulding is used to fill the gap between a window and wall or door and wall. A typical home has casings between 1″ to 4″ wide.
- Crown Moulding
This moulding is used to fill the gap between a wall and the ceiling. Crown mouldings can measure from 1 1/2″ to 15″ or 20″ depending on the size of the room, the height of the ceiling, and the grandness of the space. A typical home uses crown mouldings of about 4″ to 5″.
- Chair Railing Moulding
This moulding runs horizontal to the floor, approximately 36″ from the floor to protect the wall from chairs bumping. Today, a chair rail is often used for decorative purposes only.
Also, beautiful decorative moulding of different configurations and sizes are used to define a fireplace, providing a mantel and side frame.
