How to Transform a Room with Molding

If you’re like most people, you probably have some really nice rooms in your house that just don’t stand out the way they should. All the essential dynamics are there: great paint colors, beautiful flooring, picturesque windows, and lovely furniture. Still, something is missing - but don’t worry, we can help.

You can completely transform a plain square room by installing some molding. It’s a simple and affordable way to turn your living spaces into true showpieces. And you can have this done in literally any room: bathrooms, mud rooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, dining areas, etc. 

Molding comes in a variety of profiles. By profiles we mean pieces that are both concave and convex in their design patterns. That’s the beauty of molding - different profiles will help with your projects depending on if you want the molding to fit perfectly in corners or if you’d rather it pop from wall surfaces. You can even combine different molding profiles to achieve a unique design that will fashionably alter your home.

Molding isn’t just for ceilings and floors. These accent pieces work wonders on staircases, doors, walls and entryways. You may not think about giving these parts of your home a facelift to help them stand out. If you get on the internet and look at “before and after” photos of staircases or fireplaces with molding, you’ll be shocked by the result. The options are endless; you can create built-up baseboards, paneled walls or trimmed windows. By changing the profile of your room, you’ll create instant character other home-owners will drool over.

More and more we’re seeing homeowners who want to accentuate their fireplaces. Molding is a great, budget-friendly way to draw attention to this focal point in your home. If you try using some thicker pieces of molding, you’ll find they can serve as extra shelving or even a mantel. Adding this type of material to your fireplace will create more dimension, more depth, and certainly more beauty for you and your guests to enjoy. 

As you move forward with your projects that include molding, you’ve surely discovered its key purpose: to create a dark and light pattern on an otherwise plain surface. Ask others who have integrated molding into their homes, it fashions a seamless transition between different surfaces and materials, turning your home into a visual delight.
