Moldings come in many shapes, sizes and finishes. They can consist of one simple layer or several stacked layers to add embellishment. Traditionally moldings have been made of wood but today they’re often constructed from materials that are more durable and budget friendly.
Molding usually works best when it complements the design of your home. A Victorian home, for example, may have heavily ornamented moldings, while a modern home has squared, simple moldings or no moldings at all.
We tend to think of moldings in white or off-white colors, with walls painted a different shade. However, light colored walls with dark molding can be a dramatic choice too!
