With low housing inventory, high interest rates and expensive home prices, more people in New Jersey are choosing to remodel their current homes. This is especially worthwhile if you love your house and your neighborhood!
As you consider some of the ways to renovate your home, be sure to add chair rail moulding to your list. This overlooked upgrade can drastically change the look and feel of your home - and for all the right reasons! It’s classy, elegant and will even protect your walls from damage.
Below are the reasons to add chair rail moulding to your list of home improvement projects.
Looking to add something decorative to your home? Chair rail moulding is a great option because it adds style without accumulating more clutter. No more flat walls in your home!
This type of moulding should catch the eye and add dimension, but it should not make the room look any smaller. You can avoid this by making sure that the moulding is installed at the right height. If it’s too high, it will visually shrink the space. If it’s too low, it will make the walls look unbalanced.
Another reason to add chair rail moulding to your home is to increase its value. While this is your home to enjoy, it’s still ideal to invest in upgrades that will offer you a return on investment. And chair rail moulding is certainly one of them.
Buyers consistently put crown moulding and chair rail moulding on their list of most desirable decorative features they look for in homes. Fortunately, this is a relatively inexpensive way to give your home a visual boost while knowing that you can sell your home faster and for more money down the line.
Chair rails were actually designed to protect walls from chair marks and scuffs - hence their name! This is why you’ll see them around 32 inches from the floor, or the height of most chair backs.
If you have a busy household or tight quarters around the table, a chair rail may be the perfect solution. Walls can be sensitive to nicks, dents and scuff marks, and cleaning them can leave behind faded or discolored areas. Chair rail moulding, on the other hand, is more durable and can be cleaned with warm water and soap.
Chair rails open up new design ideas! For example, you can easily apply different wall treatments to the upper and lower sections of the wall. Some people choose to paint the lower half and apply wallpaper on the upper half, or vice versa, while others opt for two different paint colors.
Either way, you can create plenty of different designs that will make your home stand out. You can even layer the moulding for a stacked look or choose a chair rail with convex and concave profiles.
As you enhance your home during a renovation, be sure to consider chair rail moulding, along with other types of ornamental trim such as wainscotting, baseboards and crown moulding. These details will elevate your home and distinguish your property from others.
Woodhaven carries a variety of stock wood mouldings, architectural mouldings and decorative mouldings. Contact us today for an estimate!

Custom home building is often a misunderstood process. It’s not just about picking your floor plan and finishes. It also involves hiring a contractor, finding the perfect space to build, specifying a budget, designing the home and so forth.

From family dinners and holidays, to homework and late-night talks, your kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s used every day by every member of the family - pets included!
