Base Moulding

Applied where floor and walls meet, forming a visual foundation. Base moulding helps to protect walls from kicks and bumps, furniture, and cleaning tools. The base shoe and base cap are used to conceal uneven floor and wall junctions. It is best to select the baseboard that is proportional to the dimensions of the house. Base moulding profiles should be chosen to complement your interior doors, other moulding, and overall architectural style of the home.

Casing

Interior casing is a shaped, decorative moulding that covers the edges of the interior door jambs and the rough opening between the window unit and the wall. Often the most visible moulding in a millwork package, casing can help define the overall character of a room and home. Casing can be used to trim completely around each side of a doorway or window, or it can be used in conjunction with other architectural elements such as headers, rosettes, and plinth blocks.

Crown Moulding

Most often used where walls and ceiling meet. Crown moulding helps to soften the transition from wall to ceiling while adding a distinctive look and charm to most rooms. Crowns are always “sprung” meaning it has the interior corner beveled off to better fit a right angle joint.

Cove Moulding

Similar to crown moulding, cove is most often used at wall to ceiling or wall to wall junctions and is concave in profile. Cove moulding, like crown, is always “sprung” meaning it has the interior corner beveled off to better fit a right angle joint.
