Explore the various styles

While millwork may be overlooked – or eliminated completely — in what’s considered today’s trendier designs, it’s always a classic. There are various styles of moulding you can add to your home to best meet the aesthetic you’re looking for. Examples of the types of millwork you might add to your home include crown moulding or wainscotting.

Crown moulding is a common and decorative finish for traditional homes. It finishes the room by forming an eye-catching transition between the walls and the ceiling. A single strip of crown moulding will work in smaller spaces, however, homeowners with high ceilings might want to consider a more dramatic or layered moulding.

If you’re tired of staring at plain walls, wainscotting might be the answer for you. Wainscotting adds dimension to plain walls by combining stock lumber and moulding to achieve this classic, yet timeless look.
