Moulding Styles

Samples of crown ceiling moulding in three sizes

Ceiling Moulding

Crown and cornice moulding is used to conceal the joint where the wall joins the ceiling and soften the transition. Crown adds drama and a distinctive look to any room. It can be used alone or as part of a build-up using a linear molding like casing or baseboard. Crown can also be used in fireplace mantels.

Samples of window and door casing moulding in three profiles and sizes

Window and Door

Casing moulding is used to cover the transition gap between the wall (drywall) and the window or door frame. The most visible of decorative trims, casing will define the look of any room and provide that finishing touch. Generally thicker than base moulding, door casings can be wider and show more mass than window casing.

Samples of wall and decorative moulding, including chair rail, panel moulding and picture frame

Wall and Decorative Trim

Chair rail, picture frame or panel moulding is often used as a decorative element to enhance a room, connect a surface or cover a joint.

Samples of floor moulding, including base moulding, baseboard and base shoe

Floor Moulding

Base moulding or baseboard is generally applied around the room where the wall and floor meet. Usually thinner than casing, base moulding should be chosen to work in harmony with your casing to finish the look and tie the room together. A base shoe moulding is a small quarter-round used at the bottom to cover the gap between base and floor.

Samples of tongue and groove wood beadboard used for walls, ceilings and wainscoting

Wainscot / Beadboard

Wainscoting is an old-fashioned look that will add a lot of character to any room. Our tongue and groove beadboard can be used for walls, ceilings and wainscoting, creating your traditional farmhouse kitchen. Some styles available are reversible, with one side plain V-groove and one side V-bead.

You can transform any interior space into the space of your dreams.

Custom Millwork

We carry a wide selection of historically accurate moulding styles typically found in Bay Area architecture and if we do not have it we can order it. If you are doing a renovation or restoration project and need to match an existing pattern or profile and you can’t find what you are looking for, then we can make it to match. We have a long-standing relationship with an off-site woodworking shop whose millworkers are true artisans at their craft. Generally we can match or create a custom moulding style in any species of wood and deliver to our yard within a week or two. Talk to our millwork experts to learn more.
