Getting A Touch Of Class

Decorative Mouldings And Beading

No matter how much time and money you have invested in furnishing your property, just a few small additions can add a real touch of class making your home into something even more attractive and special. Whether it is period or contemporary choosing from a wide selection of decorative mouldings and beads will enable you both to integrate and add contrast to your doors, stairs, walls and ceilings.

Uses And Functions

Oak beadingWith materials to suit every pocket you can select from either hard or softwood, MDF, and for that special note of elegance to your doors, glass beading. The many styles available mean that you can add a picture or dado rail to add definition to your wall, giving your rooms a more intimate and cosy feeling. Adding an architrave to your door or a ceiling cornice gives a sense of completeness to a room and consequently a warmer sensation. But these products can have a functional purpose too. They can be used to cover rough edges for example when oak moulding is used on a laminate hardwood floor to bridge the expansion gap.

Oak Beading And Moulding

Although moulding can be purchased in both hard and soft woods, skirting and beading tend to be more available in oak. Some oak products are baked to produce a darker and more uniform colour. More often than not they are unsealed so that the customer can choose the type of finish they require. Using both oak beading and moulding will give a uniformity to the overall effect you are working towards.
