All woodwork can be very beautiful and a wonderful addition to the decor of your home. However, there is one thing that seems to take it a notch higher when it comes to carpentry and that is wood molding.
So what do we mean by wood molding? Simple answer? Wood molding is strips or pieces of wood used to create or emphasize architectural aspects of your home’s interior design. There are different types of wood molding that HQ Carpenter Chicago can install to give your home that classic “finished” appearance. The most popular are:
Crown Wood Molding
One of the most regal wood molding types is crown molding. Crown molding is beautiful woodwork that connects your walls to your ceiling. Like its name says, it is the crown above the wall. There are many types of crown molding HQ Carpenter Chicago can apply to your home. The two most popular seem to be dental and egg & dart. But there are more to choose from.
Baseboards – Wood Molding
Again, the name speaks for itself. Baseboards connect your wall to your floor. Carpentry contractors in Chicago always recommend baseboards for the finish carpentry touches for your home interior. Classic thick, detailed baseboards bring a certain panache to your home.
Casing – Wood Molding
These are the traditional surrounding of doors and windows, also known as architraves. You can use the basic teardrop designs but many choose to go with a more intricate thicker design which allows for personal tastes that fit the rest of the home’s decor.
