Moulding Installation Services
When you’re planning to remodel your home, it’s a lot of fun choosing new paint colors for the walls, new drapes, etc. However, we are willing to bet that you have not given much thought, if any, to the moulding (trim) in the rooms. The moulding gives your home a polished-finished look.
Different Types of Mouldings
Moulding hides any unavoidable joints, gaps and other imperfections. Check out the base, shoe, chair rail, and casing mouldings:
Base moulding is the skirting that runs along the bottom of your wall, hiding the joint between the floor and wall. There is a range of options from very plain to more ornate, and you can vary the size of the baseboard as well.
Shoe moulding is used by moulding-installation services to round off any gap that might appear between the bottom of the baseboards and the floor. It also makes an interesting design feature.
Casing is used to create a perimeter around a door or window. It can help seal off any gaps between the two and create an interesting design feature.
Chair rail is moulding of an interior wall that is attached horizontally around the perimeter of a room. Most people associate chair rail as a type of trim that prevents chairs from rubbing against the walls. It is also quite decorative and acts as a protective barrier from wear and tear in high traffic areas.
