All You Need To Know About Mouldings

At The Royal Wood Shop, we offer many different types of mouldings, all serving different purposes for your home renovation needs. 

We have outlined some of the key types of mouldings with helpful insights about each so that you can choose the best moudling for your home. 


Put simply, ‘casing’ is a moulding profile that frames (or trims) a door or window. Casing is functional as well as decorative.

The main purpose of casing is to surround all doors and windows, covering any space or gap left between the drywall and frame.

Example Types of Casing

Crown Moulding

Crown mouldings come in a wide range of design options for you to choose from. This ensures that you’ll be able to find one that complements the established style of your home. 

Crown styles are what make a room appear more elegant and inviting to those spending time in that space. Therefore, crown mouldings can also raise the overall value of your home. After all, the more visually interesting your home is, the more likely it is that buyers will want to pursue purchasing it. 

Example Types of Crown Moulding

Chair Rail

‘Chair rail’ mouldings are typically installed much closer to eye level, making it a focal point of any wall. Chair rail also adds a sense of movement to a wall rather than an open, blank surface would have.

Installing a chair rail will divide the wall into two sections, allowing you to use a different colour or pattern on the lower area. By using high contrasting colours (i.e. dark blue on the bottom and white on the top) homeowners can update a room in a way that new furniture cannot.

Coving (Cove Moulding)

A key benefit of cove moulding is that its style works for all eras of design (i.e. traditional, victorian, art deco etc).

Decorative cove moulding and wall panelling are very effective for creating character and enhancing a room’s interior design. 

Cove mouldings are also very easy to install as we offer mouldings that are ready to mount; all that needs to be done is to cut them to the length and glue them into place.
