Create A Stylish Home With Columns, Arches And Decorative Windows

The use of decorative architectural mouldings on a building help create a specific look, whether it be French Provincial, Edwardian, Georgian, Mediterranean, Tuscan, Art Deco or Modern.

Arches are a popular choice and create a stunning effect on a building. They are hand made and designed to follow the existing arch lines on the building, they can be made in almost any profile desired.  The look is usually topped off by a keystone on the arch.

Decorative Architectural Mouldings Eliminating Stains To Walls

gallerya06thumb

Stained walls are an eyesore on a beautiful building.  But now there’s a solution, the innovative Drip-Lip mouldings developed by Advanced Moulds for the Finishing Touch.  Conventional mouldings allow water to drip off the edge and run down the wall of the building, carrying dirt and pollution with it, creating unsightly stains on the walls. Now drips dripping off the edge of mouldings are a thing of the past. The new Drip Lip mouldings are designed so the water drips directly to the ground, not onto the wall. As a result dirt and pollution fall straight to the ground and walls do not get stained or discoloured.

With the trade-marked  Drip -Lip system ensuring walls don’t get stained, the look of the home is preserved and there are savings on painting costs.  Walls are kept dry, clean and moisture free.  The system was designed and produced by Advanced Moulds and is incorporated into the range of moulds offered by the Finishing Touch.

The Finishing Touch range of architectural decorative mouldings with the Drip-Lip system not only add beauty and style to a home but help preserve the life of the paintwork and health of the building. The marriage of beauty and practicality doesn’t end there. The moulds are light weight and guaranteed not to warp, shrink or bend. As rigorous standards in the production, installation and fitting of all mouldings are applied, customers can be assured of a quality finish to their building.

Adding an authentic finish to the design of the home or building, the decorative mouldings can create the following styles:

  • Edwardian
  • Georgian
  • French Provincial
  • Mediterranean
  • Tuscan
  • Art Deco
  • Modern

The Finishing Touch Commissioned For Award Winning Design ‘The Eyrie’

The Finishing Touch were commissioned by Vibe Design Group to supply mouldings for the award winning design for The Eyrie.  The challenge to transform a large, ungainly and unfinished building into a stylish home and quasi gallery was met with aplomb by the designers.

Excessively large, non-functional spaces, an incomplete indoor pool and an ugly stair were particularly challenging.  The brief required the house to have the appearance of the grand home of the local squire from a bygone era. Taking on the brief to create an historical look the designer chose to alter the building in a contemporary way.  The result is an exterior French neo classical façade with contemporary outbuildings that blend with and complement the classical look. The Finishing Touch moulds are an integral design element of the classic façade.

The interior is contemporary with the addition of period features only where they make a positive contribution, with heavily moulded entry doors set into an expansive shopfront-like wall of glass. The overall design is of contrasting styles that work magically together. Exacting standards throughout the project produced high quality finishes by builder Icon Synergy Pty Ltd.

The renovation won a Building Design Award 2013 from Building Design Association Victoria for Residential Design – Alterations & Additions over $500K and an Excellence in Housing Award from The Masters Builders Association for Best Renovation/Addition over $1M. The Finishing Touch are proud to be associated with such an outstanding example of innovative design and thinking outside of the box.
