Beautify Your Home with New Moulding

w-cornertrimMoulding, also known as molding or trim, adds beauty to every single room in your home. Without it, you’d have ugly drywall edges with gaps along the side of the windows and doors. You’d have gaps on the floors alongside the wall. You’d also have rough ceiling to wall sections and rough cut edges of wooden cabinets with no protection. Trim takes the ugly out of construction and adds beauty over top of it. Your house cleaning efforts are only as good as the things around it that you see. Therefore, new looking trim will enhance your cleaning efforts.


Trim is available in many materials, like oak, pine, polymer, polyethylene, composite, and vinyl. Oak will give you strength and durability, but at a higher cost. Pine can serve well at a more affordable price, but is prone to more damage than oak. Polymer, polyethylene, vinyl, and composite clean easier, but are more susceptible to scuffing. Vinyl has more potential to warp if not installed properly or well.


Size will depend on the type. Types available include base moulding, corner moulding, inside corner trim, outside corner trim, crown moulding, chair rail, tile cap moulding, utility trim moulding, cove moulding, and many more types.


Design will vary too, from something that is simply beveled to something with wavy patterns, circular patterns, or many other patterns. Design can be implemented through etching, engraving, routing, or laminating. Once you understand your options, you’ll be ready to find exactly what is best for you. In fact, it will promote your housework efforts by making each room look much better.
