Although decorative mouldings were most popular during the Victorian era and defined the Victorian building, they have been used through many eras and for numerous styles of building. These days they are used to create a style from yesteryear or add interest to a modern building.
With the latest development in decorative moulding manufacture, the once heavy mouldings now come in a lightweight design that is easy to transport, fix and finish. The Finishing Touch distribute this innovative moulding design, developed and manufactured by Advanced Mouldings. Mouldings were originally made from stone then stucco followed by terracotta, with plaster used for intricately designed interior ceilings. Now the Finishing Touch offer mouldings made from computer cut high grade EPS polystyrene, triple coated with a multi-part compound and reinforced with a triple coating of sand.
The range of different moulding shapes can be used to create many different styles, such as a French Provincial style home, as illustrated in the award winning Eyrie with its French neo classical façade. The Finishing Touch moulds are an integral design element of this classic façade.
Mouldings can also create a classic Georgian style façade, as illustrated in this house. Builders and House Designers can choose the appropriate moulding shape, placing them in the right position to create the desired effect.
Art Deco is a popular, elegant and more modern style which can be ably re-created with the clever use of mouldings, as shown in this home.
Other styles that can be achieved through the use of mouldings are Edwardian, Mediterranean and Tuscan. The Finishing Touch have a range of mouldings available, but they can also create custom made mouldings to customer specifications.
