While we specialize in the installation of crown moulding, we install other interior trim work as well.  Read about each type of moulding below and see examples of each in the photos featured next to each heading.  Click each photo to go to an online album dedicated to that type of moulding.  For best viewing we recommend you click "slideshow" and then "full screen slideshow".



Crown Moulding

Crown moulding is an affordable way to upgrade any room in your home by adding a feeling of warmth and elegance. Without crown moulding, even the most beautifully decorated room looks unfinished.

By definition, crown moulding runs along the top of a wall where it meets the ceiling.  The wider the moulding, the more stately the effect.  But because ceilings and walls are rarely perfectly square, crown moulding can be tricky to install.  That's why most "do-it-yourself" home-owners will hire a professional when it comes to installing crown.

 


 

Wainscot and Chair Rail

Wainscots are back, with more variety than ever. These trims reach only part way up a wall to visually lower high ceilings, add interest to walls that have no built-in character, or simply provide some decorating punctuation to your design statements.  Wainscoting is an excellent way to transform a bland space into a stunning, elegant room.

Chair rail, also known as running trim, is usually found at a height where most chair backs would hit the wall. Chair rail can also be used alone as a wall divider between an upper painted section and wallpaper below.





Baseboards

Baseboards cover the lowest part of an interior wall.  Its purpose is to cover the joint between the wall surface and the floor.  It covers the inevitable uneven edge as flooring meets the wall. As a secondary function, it protects the wall from kicks and abrasion and sometimes prevents furniture from being pushed right against the wall. As a tertiary function, it can serve as a decorative moulding.

Many homes are built with small, basic baseboards.  A simple way to enhance the appearance of your home is to remove the basic baseboards that came with your home and install something more substantial.


Window Sills, Aprons and Casings

If your home has the most basic of windows then you are lacking the visually appealing finished trim work of window sills, aprons and casings.  This simple addition will frame your windows and elevate your home to a more custom feel. 

Door casings can also be added or replaced if it is ever desired or necessary.
 




Encasements

Yes, there is something that can be done with the barren look of an arched or squared entry between rooms or openings in the walls between rooms.  Encasements are the solution.  We have designed encasements for many tract homes that were lacking that custom home look. By adding some trim to both sides of the opening as well as jambs and sills (where appropriate) you will instantly be the envy of the neighborhood. 




Coffered Ceilings

Coffered ceilings are ceilings set with square or polygonal panels, usually enhanced with decorative motifs.  Depending on the room and tastes of the homeowner, they can be designed to be simple yet substantial or elaborate and very detailed.  This application is often used in home offices, libraries and dens.  They are also becoming more popular in kitchens and dining rooms.  With coffered ceilings, the wood can be either stained or painted, depending on the desired look.
