Wooden mouldings and terms can significantly enhance and bring together a room from floor to ceiling. Serving both a practical purpose of covering gaps between different surfaces and a decorative purpose, consider using high-quality wood for your next moulding and trim installation project. Here will go over the main types of mouldings and characteristics of different wood trims.
Types of Mouldings
There are many different styles of moulding that are found in the home, but they will all fall into two general categories:
Primary trim is found in pretty much every construction project and serves a functional purpose to cover gaps between two areas. The areas between the floor and the walls, or the ceiling and the walls, are common locations for primary trim. This type of moulding can be simple flat moulding or highly decorative crown mouldings.
Design-enhancing / Decorative Trim
Serving to enhance walls or entryways, these types of moulding have extra details and designs that accentuate a room.
Moulding can be used in multiple locations throughout the home in all rooms. Here are some of the places that mouldings can be used:
- Wall and ceilings – Chair Rail, Crown Moulding, and Panel Moulding
- Floors – Baseboard, Base Shoe, Base Cap
- Doors and Windows – Casings, Architraves
