Wooden Mouldings: An Introduction

When it comes to putting the final touches to a house, it is  the small details that make all the difference. Whether the theme you have chosen for your home is traditional or contemporary, wooden mouldings can enhance the design, change its aesthetics and conceal unsightly gaps, coarse edges or joints.

Wooden Mouldings  are generally used as an option for designers, homeowners and builders to make a statement. Although there are a variety of wooden mouldings, each is intended to perform a particular purpose. Architraves for example can transform the overall appearance of a door, creating anything from a simple, understated entrance to a very grand one.

Illingworth Ingham (M/cr) Ltd are experts in wooden mouldings. Our moulding range includes:

Architraves – These form the wooden surrounds of doorways

Cornice – These are used to cover the join between wall and ceiling and can be used to make a room look very grand and ornate.

Skirting – These cover the join between floor and ceiling and depending on the design can enhance a traditional or contemporary design.

Picture Rails and Dado – These can be used to provide an attractive finishing touch to walls.

Hand and Base Rails – These form part of the components used for staircases. We see a wide variety of different designs being requested as staircases can provide a stunning focal point for any building project.

Feature Cladding – Whether you want internal panelling or stunning on-trend external cladding, feature cladding can really make a statement.

Wooden mouldings can be produced in both softwoods and hardwoods. Softwoods are general used for moulding features that are to be painted whereas hardwoods are chosen when the beauty of the wood is required as part of the feature.
