History of Hardwood Mouldings
The original hardwood mouldings made up for the lack of tight tolerances in original home designs. The mouldings hid corners that were not quite square and blocked drafts from flowing through the room. Modern hardwood mouldings are much more of a statement piece that helps bring the home together figuratively, not literally as modern build tolerances cover the rest.
Types of Hardwood Mouldings
Hardwood mouldings add a touch of elegance to rooms, doorways and other key areas throughout the house. The most popular moulding styles include:
- Panel Moulding
- Chair Rails
- Radius Moulding
- Rope and Dentil
You can identify the style of home and the mouldings that will look best in that space. In traditional home designs, for example, crown mouldings will likely play a major role in each room of the house. The type of hardwood mouldings used also influences the overall appearance of the installed mouldings. Poplar and White Oak attract the most attention with both a subtle and an extravagant hardwood mouldings design.
