Cornice Mouldings by V.I.P Classic Moulding

Crown Moulding project Hamilton

Cornice mouldings are decorative architectural elements that conceal the joint where the ceiling meets the wall. Moulding is the Canadian and United Kingdom spelling of “molding,” and therefore a person should research both spellings when searching for cornice moulding. The three different types of decorative cornice are roving, which is a paper-covered plaster core; machined wood; and the molded type, which is available in various materials. Mouldings are available in many styles, from classic to modern.

Why Choose Cornice Mouldings

potlight installation

People choose to use cornice mouldings for different reasons. Many older homes have existing cornice or Crown Moulding, and homeowners may use the cheaper and lighter poly product mouldings to mimic the existing moulding in new rooms or to repair damaged existing moulding. One type of cornice moulding is custom-made expanded polystyrene moulding that matches existing moulding, and often renovation and restoration specialists make the moulding themselves.

Homeowners usually can install modern foam or poly product plastic mouldings. using a simple saw and adhesive. Many of the designs are replicas of the traditional plaster or wood mouldings found in older homes, such as Victorian era buildings. Cornice mouldings date back to ancient times and were popular in Greek, Roman, and other regional architecture. Many of the modern styles are plainer, lacking the frilly and flowery details of older mouldings.
