Ultimately, you will have to be the final judge of what might work best in your
home, but that doesn't mean you can't take plenty of time to browse the
different moulding types. There are a lot of custom mouldings that can
be made in order to match the architectural style of your home, so if
you do have a Victorian home or a Mission-style home, there are always
mouldings ready to be installed to enhance your house's current design.
The different moulding types include base and case, crown, chair rail,
applied, T-astragals, corner and plinth blocks, and tongue and groove
mouldings. Of course, you don't have to pick out a pre-made design and
can always opt for specialty custom mouldings in order to best suit your
home. Each and every one of these mouldings will be placed in a
different location in the room, or around the door of your choice. Don't
be afraid to ask about specialty custom options as many manufacturers
are happy to provide you with mouldings of your particular choice.
You may have a house style, and you can also shop by that style as well in
order to see all the different moulding possibilities based upon the
design. From Rustic to Tuscan, Contemporary to Craftsman, each design
will be different from one another in order to best reflect that
architectural style. Again, you are not required to choose from just one
type, but instead can have mouldings custom designed in order to get
the best match.
Once you choose your moulding, you also get to choose the wood species, how distressed you want the wood to be (if at
all), and any pre-finishing options. Once the manufacturer knows what
you want, they can craft the moulding and then send it to you for
installation. You can install the moulding yourself or contact
professionals to do it for you. Once you have your new moulding
installed in your home, you can take a step back and admire a job well
done. Who knew moulding could make such a difference?
