Do you have molding in your home? Do you often see nicks or scratches that take away from the beautiful and intricate detail of the molding? Do you dread having to scrape, sand, and repaint those small corners and edges that seem to go on for miles in your home? If so, it may be time for a professional molding makeover.
New England homes are historically built with all types of moldings, including: crown molding, door casings, chair rails, ceiling trays, and/or baseboard trim. For many of the high traffic areas in your home, the molding could probably use a little TLC from years of dust, chipping and scuffing. If your molding has begun to look a little worse-for-wear, then you may want to consider how these molding makeover ideas can breathe new life into your home.
- Repair and Replace – Homeowners should first inspect the molding (and there is usually a lot more than you originally thought) around the doors, ceilings, and windows of your home. Are there places that need to be replaced or repaired? Jerry Enos Painting can match the style to your existing molding and make it fit in seamlessly if there are sections that need repair and/or replacing.
- Color Choices – While most homeowners tend to select a variation of white color for molding, there are a wide variety of color palettes that can be used to bring out the color in your home. Coordinate with an accent color, a room color, or choose a classic white that can bring out the beauty in just about any room and can work with most colors on wall surfaces.
- Sheen Choices – As with wall colors, sheen can help bring out a shine or add a flat/eggshell look to the molding. Many homeowners opt for the higher sheens such as semi gloss or high gloss, as moldings tend to see high traffic such as fingers and hands around doors, windows, and light switches.
