Did you know that just a little millwork can help change the overall look and finish of your home? Simple door frames, chair rails, base trims or even crown mouldings can help increase the aesthetic value of your home, while adding depth and richness to the design of your home. Here are 3 quick tips to help you add character and flair to your interiors with millwork:

1. Protect your walls and add an element of beauty by using the baseboards

Installed where the wall and floor meet, baseboards are used to conceal any gaps between the floor and the final wall finish, while providing protection to the wall. A room with correctly fitted baseboards will give your visitors a good impression of your home as soon as they walk in.

2. Accentuate your windows and doors and make them stand out

Another form of millwork you can use to improve the aesthetics of your interior space are the window and door casings. The trimmings dress up your windows, while giving them a more complete and unique look. Doors and windows are often overlooked by many. Casing mouldings are one of the best way to accentuate the windows and doors to make them stand out.

3. Trim your walls and ceilings with beautiful crown moulding

This is the most common form of millwork used in homes today but people don’t make the most of it. When choosing the best mouldings for your sitting room, be careful about the choice of profile and the size you choose.  You want to balance the style of moulding with the color and feel of the room. Crown mouldings add a smooth transition between walls and ceilings, while adding an elegant touch to the finish. Millwork can be used throughout the home to add more flavor. A little bit of millwork goes a long way in dressing up the overall aesthetic. It also adds resale value when compared to other homes in your area.  This is thanks to the use of premium materials and finishes.
