How to Optimize Custom Wood Work Like Crown Molding to Improve Your Home Décor

Posted March 01, 2023

If you are looking to improve your home decor, custom millwork is an excellent way to achieve this. Millwork refers to any type of woodwork that is produced in a mill, such as doors, moulding, trim, wall paneling and crown moulding. Woodhaven is proud to offer a wide range of moulding profiles or styles in various materials.

Below are some of our best tips for optimizing custom woodwork in your home.

Get Accurate Measurements

It’s incredibly important to get accurate measurements for your millwork. Precision is key to remodeling and renovating, as this is what gives the project the sophistication, style and elegance it deserves.

It pays to hire a professional woodworking company to ensure the proper measurements are taken. Woodhaven not only provides accurate measurements but also we pay meticulous attention to the cutting, shaping and joining of our millwork. This way, we can guarantee a high-end finished look.

Pick the Right Rooms

While millwork looks great in every room, most homeowners have to pick and choose which rooms to install it in due to time or budget constraints. If this is the case for you, decide which rooms you want to give special attention to. Oftentimes, it’s the first-floor rooms - kitchen, study, dining room, living room - that get the most use.

Keep in mind that some types of millwork offer practical advantages as well. For example, a chair rail protects the walls from wear and tear, as well as scuffs and scratches from chairs. Therefore, you would want to install a chair rail in your kitchen or dining room. Crown moulding, on the other hand, can make the ceiling appear higher, enlarging a family or living room.

Choose the Right Profile

The options are limitless when it comes to choosing the right millwork styles and profiles. Some of your options include:

  • Crowns and coves
  • Casings and back bands
  • Panel mouldings
  • Chair rails
  • Bases and base caps

Often, this millwork is combined with wainscotting, a type of decorative wood paneling installed along the lower wall to protect it from scuffs. You also have the option to choose various decor styles such as traditional, coastal, contemporary and rustic.
