Interior Moulding

Interior moulding hasn’t always been used just to add a decorative element to the home. It was originally used to camouflage the change from one surface to another. However, homeowners today appreciate the trim for both its decorative and its functional purposes.

Understand Decorative Interior Moulding

The number of moulding options available can be overwhelming, but a carefully thought out use of trim can provide homeowners with a refined outcome. To achieve this look, it is helpful to understand the types of moulding available and how each was originally designed to be used:

  • Base Moulding

    This is the board at the lowest point of the wall, where it meets with the floor. It is as decorative as it is protective.
  • Casing

    This trim provides the frame around a door or a window. It is often used to cover the gap between the jamb and the sheetrock.
  • Crown Moulding

    This embellishment provides depth to the walls and was traditionally used at where the wall meets the ceiling.
  • Ogee

    Ogee moulding is an S-shaped trim. The S may be very subtle, and can be found in many architectural uses.
  • Rails

    Rails hold a vital function in homes, but they also offer a great deal of choice when it comes to adding ornamental details.
  • Panel Moulding

    This trim is used to add accent to walls. It is often used to highlight or frame specific areas on the wall or to frame wainscot details.

Whether the homeowner wants to add elegance to a large room or to introduce a focal interest to plain décor, interior moulding provides many options. There are very few limitations to the decorative and functional use of trim.
