The inside of your home is even more important than the outside, obviously. It’s where you work, live, raise your children, relax and create precious memories. It should be beautiful as well as comfortable. You would be surprised what a startling difference you can make with new moulding and millwork on your ceilings and staircase.
We don’t often go about looking at our ceilings, do we? But they are in our periphery vision and we always spot imperfections such as cobwebs or a stray bit of dirt. Ceilings are always on the edge of our sight and the more attractive they are, the more inviting and comfortable our homes are. Take a look at the moulding on between your walls and your ceilings; is it old, unattractive or missing altogether? Modern houses often dispense with this extra touch of beauty but you can correct that omission with beautiful moulding choices from your local Southern Maryland building supply.
Floor moulding is another important part of the way a room feels. In past times, a house wasn’t considered finished until floor moulding, often called baseboards, was installed. Floor moulding and be sleek and simple or decorative, depending on your tastes.
Moulding can be as simple or elaborate as you like. Of course, it all depends on your home’s décor and architecture. A modern home with clean lines will look great with simple Fillet moulding, which is nothing more than a small flat band but really sets off a room with elegance. An older home where the moulding has been torn out would regain its former stateliness with a Godroon style, a band that looks as if it is beaded and is often seen on silverwork. Or you may prefer Guilloche, which is interlocking half circles decorated with rosettes. You can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish!
Many homes take a cue from earlier generations by installing Chair Rail moulding, which was originally meant to protect the wall from the back of a chair. This effect is beautiful when it is used to separate sections of wall that are painted from the half that has been wallpapered. Kitchens with a scheme like this are inviting, warm looking and cozy.
