Moulding and Millwork

If you have never heard the terms “moulding” and “millwork”, you may be surprised to learn that both of these things can be used to recreate a living space so it is more beautiful and functional. On the other hand, you may have heard one term or the other without really knowing what they are or how they fit together as a cohesive team. Here are two quick definitions of moulding and millwork:

  • Moulding – Moulding is considered an ornamental edging that rests just below the ceiling and can provide added interest to any room.
  • Millwork – Millwork is building materials that are manufactured at a wood mill facility, and which can be used as a decorative or functional addition to the interior and exterior of any property.

Moulding has been found in homes for centuries and can be a defining feature or a subtle addition. Millwork originated as a hand-crafted product, and over time has become more automated to meet consumer demands. The best part about moulding and millwork is that homeowners can truly create a unique space by customizing their choices and adding entirely distinctive options to suit their personal living style preferences.
