Everyone would like to set their home’s interior apart from the ordinary.
Question is how can we achieve it ?
Decorative Mill-work is one of the few things in your home which can do the trick.
Mill-work is any type of woodwork that is produced in a mill. This includes doors, molding, trim, flooring, wall paneling and crown molding.
Let’s take a tour of some of the things you can do in your home with decorative mill-work.
Use crown moulding to add elegance and interest to any room, where the walls meet the ceiling.
Top off interior windows with a pediment above a window surround. The window casings or surrounds serve to frame your lovely outdoor views, while adding a look of durability. They can be as simple or detailed as you wish. You’ll appreciate the character they bring to your windows.
Upgrade the look of a boring kitchen island by adding decorative brackets or corbels as accent pieces.
How about adding decorative beams to a ceiling to draw the eye upward? You may even opt for the look of a coffered ceiling, with beams creating a waffle-like pattern. Although coffers are usually square, you may wish to consider other regular geometric shapes. Special coffers are available that improve the acoustics in a room with a high ceiling. For a low ceiling, you can create a modified-coffered look by using flat boards instead of beams.
Door casings give a finished look to any room, but also protect from drafts. You’ll probably want to match the door casings to other accents in the same room, like window casings, baseboards and trim. With many styles available, it’s easy to match the decor of any room. For an extra touch, adding a keystone to the top of any interior door gives an elegant look to the room.
These are just the few possibilities.You can also brainstorm and come up with your unique ideas of how to introduce decorative mill-work in your home.
