Moulding is a great way to enhance the aesthetics of any room. The most common moulding found in many rooms is casing and base. These two types of moulding are aesthetically pleasing but also protect the walls. Additional moulding can provide additional protection such as a chair rail but can also draw attention to the room through enhancing the visual appeal through crown, coffered ceilings, judges paneling, and many other applications.
Consider both the functional and aesthetic applications of moulding when making a selection. The size of the room should also be considered as some wider moulding profiles are best for larger rooms with high ceilings and smaller mouldings work best for smaller rooms. If you have a moulding you are trying to match, it will help to draw a sketch of the profile and bring it to your nearest retailer.
Installation and finishing of moulding can be a do-it-yourself project. This allows the ability to be creative and make changes as desired. With the option to paint or stain the moulding depending on the specie purchased, the finish of the moulding can be used to enhance style of the room.
