Add Some Polish with Trim & Panel Moulding
Wainscoting, panel molding, chair rails…homeowners tend to use these words interchangeably, but the overall result is the same, bringing elegance and sophistication to your home. Wainscoting and other wall panels were originally designed and used as wall protection to bring warmth to cold stone walls.
Today, panelling comes in all shapes, sizes and styles. You may be familiar with more traditional home wainscoting, but as you’ll see in the photos below, trim and panel moulding can easily become a unique contemporary fixture that any homeowner could love.
A coat of dark charcoal gray or navy paint can help create a handsome lounge vibe in any room.
The typical white chair rail can be custom built in a variety of panel styles and sizes and helps protect walls from scuffs and marks. It is especially effective in high traffic areas like hallways and stairwells.
Get creative with your panel moulding! This full wall diagonal trim creates a unique wall pattern and adds height to the room by leading your eye upward. Bonus: no sticky wallpaper involved!
Intricate, baroque moulding can still be modern when paired with clean white walls and contemporary furnishings.
