The French provincial style home with an Aussie touch has proved a popular architectural style in Australia, particularly in Melbourne, and its popularity has continued throughout this year. The Finishing Touch has provided decorative mouldings to builders to enhance this style over the years and their range includes some specific French provincial mouldings. More recently the build on a French provincial style home in Mt. Waverley created eye catching architectural interest with the addition of six arches with a span of 1000 mm wide and one arch with a span of 1800mm, all made up from window architrave, model # W1100.
The Finishing Touch are renowned for their lightweight, easy to install, high quality and long lasting decorative mouldings, but sometimes concrete versions are required in certain settings where the sturdier material is needed A build, situated in Ballan ordered 19 metres of solid concrete column capitals, size 231mm x 96mm, 19 metres solid concrete bases, size 200mm x 80mm together with eight fluted, square concrete columns size 350mm x 350mm (still a lighter version than a solid concrete column, bypassing the need for cranes to lift into place). The concrete versions are more difficult to install and carry a 30% higher price point.
