4 Custom Millwork Ideas for Your Home

Posted October 27, 2020

Millwork refers to woodwork that is produced in a mill such as doors, trim, crown moulding and wall paneling. These items are all cut and created from raw lumber as opposed to fabricated in a factory. Custom millwork makes a beautiful addition to your home because it gives it instant character, creates a finished look and transforms rooms without having to do a complete renovation.

If you are considering adding millwork to your home renovation, here are four ideas to consider.

1. Moulding and Millwork

Moulding is a strip of material used to cover transitions between surfaces and/or provide decorative accents. Many types of moulding exist, including crown moulding, baseboards, wainscoting and chair rails. You can install trim in any room of the home, though certain types of moulding are reserved for specific areas such as casing for windows and baseboards for floors.

2. Built-in Furniture

Built-in furniture is growing in popularity because it makes use of the available space and avoids the need to invest and care for new furniture. Popular built-in furniture ideas include bookshelves, beds, cabinets, wine storage and desks. These furnishings are custom made so you can pick any design that you wish.

3. Ceiling Medallions

Decorative ceiling medallions are an excellent choice if you want to cover up an imperfection on your ceiling. But they also add value and style to the home without having to spend a lot of money. You can also use a beautiful medallion to highlight a hanging chandelier or light fixture, especially if you opted for a plainer design.

4. Wall Paneling

Wall paneling, or wainscoting, is a common request that we get, and it’s understandable why. Without this paneling, walls are generally flat and boring. Wainscoting dresses up the walls using wood paneling on the lower half. You can choose from various designs and textures to bring your rooms to life.
