Plaster cornice has been used to decorate buildings for centuries and can restore a properties original features or bring a new modern, but classic twist to a building. Contemporary coving and cornice trends can impart a real sense of elegance to your décor and they provide a classic elegance to any contemporary design beautifully.
Traditional plaster cornice (or coving, as it is sometimes wrongly referred to in the modern world), can also be used to add another dimension to a room, for example, in a modern room decorated in neutral colours, coving can be used to break up the neutral tones and give the room an elegant feel, or add drama to an otherwise plain room.
Many people can associate cornice and coving with older period properties and listed buildings, and a major part of building renovation is the restoration and recreation of these original pieces. Old cornice and coving can be replicated by creating a template for a mould from the original plaster mouldings, and making new matching pieces.
You could even have your own designed created to match in perfectly with your plans and ideas for the restoration or refurbishment of a property or room.
Choosing the perfect cornice really depends upon the type of property or room you are restoring or renovating. Older properties with high ceilings and large rooms would benefit from grand and ornate pieces, whilst a simple, plain cornice can really add a touch of luxury to a modern room.
When choosing plaster mouldings for your property, whether you’re looking to buy cornice online, or even looking for someone to design, supply and fit the coving for you, it is best to seek the advice of a professional who can guide you in the right direction.
