The Moulding Company has come up with a list of five of the best moulding ideas and types that promise to bring trendy elegance and style to your living space.
Trendy Trims and Magnificent Moulds
From crown mouldings to pearl mouldings, here’s a list of moulding types that won’t go out of style and will add some life to your living space:
- Casings: Casing covers the gap between your door and wall or window frame and wall, but it also serves as a subtle way to bring some depth to your room. Different styles and designs of casings are available so you can pick one that fits your décor and style, but all of them are sure to draw the eye to doorways or fabulous windows. Casing isn’t just a design element; it’s a practical one.
- Paneling: We all know that walls take a beating, from children to furniture to everyday accidents. Walls are often subjected to dents, permanent markers, scratches, and more, which can require expensive repairs. Paneling is similar to casing in that it serves a practical function: protecting your walls from these types of damages. It covers the wall—usually from the ground to about halfway up the wall—with sturdy material, so if accidents do occur, it is much easier and cheaper to replace than having to fix the actual wall itself. It is also incredibly stylish, with a myriad of designs and patterns to choose from to accentuate any room’s décor and theme. Paneling can be a crucial design element in any home, from a modest townhouse to an elegant palace.
- Crown moulding: Crown moulding is perhaps the most well-known moulding around, aside from baseboards. One of the beautiful things about crown moulding is that it draws your eyes up the wall to the ceiling, accentuating features such as vaulted ceilings or adding a deeper sense of height to the room. You can find crown moulding in a multitude of shapes, designs, silhouettes, and types, such as cove moulding, so there is truly an option for everyone to love. If done well, crown moulding can add a refined style to your space and make it feel more open.
- Bead and pearl moulding: Two examples of truly beautiful moulding are the bead and pearl moulds. While they are two different styles of moulding, they both add distinctive texture and personality to a space and tend to accentuate crown moulding or chair railing. They are distinguished by rows of round designs and can be found in more complex patterns involving leaves, swirls, and flowers, allowing you a range of choices to find the one that looks right at home in your house.
- Picture rail moulding: An innovative idea for moulding, picture rail moulding adds a quaint charm to a space while providing functionality. This type of moulding is typically a banner or strip of wood that can sometimes be patterned, but it is designed to hang pictures and décor from. Picture rail moulding prevents you from having to drive nails into your walls, and it can be a homey feature in an entranceway or even a kitchen, giving space to hang pots and pans from.
