Molding

What Is Molding?

Molding is a type of wood trim used to add decorative elements to ceilings, baseboards, windows, shelving, and more. Like other types of wood, molding comes in a variety of species, grades, colors, and types.

Molding used for decorative trim can be varnished or painted to complement your home’s décor and furnishings. Molding tends to be quite affordable and can transform the look of your home or business with minimal effort.

Types of Molding

Because there are so many different types of molding available for purchase, choosing a style and material can be a complicated endeavor. Let House of Plywood & Paneling help you select the right molding for the job.

Molding Styles

The style of molding you choose will depend on the type of look and feel you’re trying to achieve in a certain room. Styles include Traditional, Victorian, Modern, and Country, for example. When choosing molding for your project, keep in mind that different styles can be combined to create a unique or custom appearance.

Molding Materials

Molding can be made from different types of materials such as medium-density fiberboard molding (MDF), finger joint molding, pine moldings, oak moldings, and cherry molding, for instance. The type of material you choose for your molding will likely depend on where in the room the molding will be featured as well as how much you want to spend on your decorative trim.

How to Buy Molding

Adding molding to your home can be a simple DIY project and adds an element of style and sophistication to your interior. Buying molding, however, can be grueling. Here are some tips to help the process along:

  • Decide whether you want your molding painted or varnished.
  • Measure the room to determine how much molding you need, making note of any corners.
  • Buy a little more molding than you think you’ll need to give yourself room for error.
