There are typically three types of mouldings:

Decorative. These are ideal for covering unsightly areas and/or making them look more attractive.  

Ornamental. These are not hiding anything, instead they are all about looking good, and offering fine detailing that is carved or embossed into the wood. 

Architectural. These are the little details that pull a room together. They are a necessity in the room, whilst looking attractive. This typically includes skirting boards and architraves. 

Mouldings have a variety of uses, including:

  • Covering unsightly areas such as gaps where different surfaces meet, and/or making them look more attractive 
  • Making the area look more attractive, offering fine detailing that is carved or embossed into the wood

Which Material? 

At Howarth Timber, we offer mouldings in a variety of materials including Hardwood and MDF moulding, and the one that you choose will depend on what you are looking to achieve from your small mouldings. 

Our Hardwood Mouldings are typically made from American White Oak and are perfect if you are looking to achieve a traditional look with all the character that ensures hardwoods are a popular choice. 

Hardwood Mouldings are supplied unfinished, meaning that they are not treated with any stains, oils or finishes. This allows you to choose your own treatments to achieve the perfect finish to suit your tastes and requirements. 

Veneered MDF mouldings, for example, are an alternative to solid timber mouldings that are a great choice if you are looking for something that looks exactly like solid timber but without the defects that are often associated with it. As such veneered MDF mouldings won’t twist or warp, which will save you a lot of time and energy. 

Our veneered MDF moulding range is available in several veneers: 

  • Oak 
  • Ash 
  • Beech 
  • Walnut
