What are Mouldings?

Mouldings are a strip – typically made from wood – that are fitted decoratively to enhance an area, adding a nice finishing touch or creating a specific style for a room. Mouldings are most commonly used to disguise a rough join; this could be where the wall meets either the floor or ceiling, or it could be the opening in a wall, creating a door frame.

Types of mouldings include skirting, architrave, strip wood, quadrant mouldings and decorative mouldings, as well as a variety of small moulding options, that allow you to add a finishing touch to your walls and doors.

Although a small part of your room, mouldings are important because they have the power to completely change the appearance and overall feel of a room. Many of our mouldings can be painted, oiled, stained or varnished to suit your individual needs and tastes.
