Toronto, ON – July 10th, 2017 – Demand for custom commercial millwork is on the rise. With this, the requirement for custom architectural millwork services is gaining momentum.
As design trends adapt to changing client requirements, new technology and manufacturing materials are integrated to better fit business requirements.
Commercial space owners are seeking creative furniture and cabinetry, pantries, banquettes, shelving, storage, lounge, seating, reception desks and collaboration areas.
There are multiple styles to pick from and several design pieces that transform your space. See some of the popular molding styles:
More often than not, baseboards get lost in the vast sea of other millwork furniture. They deserve more attention. The design of baseboards is simple and they are pivotal in hiding the joining flooring with walls. This adds a visual continuity, which pulls a room together.
2. Crown Molding style in Custom architectural millwork
A crown molding is named as such because it is the crowing architectural feature of an interior. A crown molding joins a ceiling in an attractive fashion.
3. Cove Molding
Simply referred to as coving sometimes, cove molding is used where ceiling and walls meet. It is a low-profile trim which is designed in a concave shape. Because of their shape, they are often used to hide joints or inside corner guards. They are also used in cabinetry for a more aesthetic appeal.
4. Picture Rail Molding
Picture rail moldings serve a two-fold purpose. They let you hang pictures without having to grill numerous ugly holes in the wall and arouse visual interest of the onlooker.
Essentially, these are molding strips which adhere to walls, running horizontally around the whole room, aligning with window top. These are generally installed 7-9” off the floor and can often be seen in conjunction with crown molding style.
5. Chair Rail Molding
Chair rail molding protects walls from damage caused by furniture ramming into it. This type of commercial millwork molding is visually appealing and provides an excellent transition between wallpaper and paint. It offers a nice touch with a sense of refinement and proportion to your rooms.
