Moulding is the part that goes on your walls, ceilings, windows and doors to act as a frame. It creates a nice and complete look on the inside of your home when you have moulding. Most pivot door manufacturers supply and install moulding for you.

You can create your own custom designed frames in your home. It’s a good idea to add moulding around your mirrors. When you have your mirror placed directly on your wall then it is good to invest in having a frame around it. This will then prevent the glass of the mirror to fall easily, because it will now have something around it to hold it into place, especially when you house has a lot of movement or strong wind coming in and out.

A lot of people who have fireplaces in their living rooms will normally go for a moulding design around it. If you want to keep to a rustic look then it’s a good idea to keep the brick around the hole of the fireplace and then add a nice white or cream frame around it. A lot of modern and vintage homes have this design, it works for both themes. You can also create it in a way where you can display things above the fireplace; it creates a lovely homely feel and look to your living room.

Having your windows trimmed on the inside of your home is also a good idea. It completes the look of your home on the inside, and it also then creates more stability for your windows. You can have them trimmed on the outside as well; this design is a bit tricky, because it can easily look very busy on the outside of your house. When designing the window trimming on the outside of your home, rather sit down with your architect or interior designer to get the right guidance on how to do this the correct way.

You can create moulding on your ceiling; this will commonly go around your chandelier. A lot of the vintage homes have this in their homes around their chandeliers, it creates more dimension to your ceiling. It also brings out the design of your chandelier more. Some people will paint the design a different colour than the ceiling; this will then let that specific colour shine in the room when the lights are on, because the colour will reflect on the light. If you are going for this look be sure to choose the right colour, if the right colour is not used then it can look very bad in your home.

These frames can also be used to create an elegant archway on your home. An archway looks good for the entrance of your hallway, living room and kitchen. If the right shades are used then the archway can look very beautiful. Try and use two different shades of the colour theme of your home to paint the frame. The colours should give it a 3D effect and should create a welcoming feel in your home.
