Molding for Ceiling and Wall Panels
Panel moldings were introduced in the elegant interiors of homes during the Georgian period of the 1700's. In these grand homes, panel moldings
adorned walls, ceilings, and doors. Alluring ceiling and wall panels created with panel molding visually enhanced the room's sense of space adding
exquisite decorative elements.

Installing Panel Molding
Installing wall panels is a great way to breathe life into an ordinary room; wall panels give an extremely refined look to the interior. Delivering a
stronger design statement than paint or wall paper, wall panels divide the wall into attractive, precise sections that look like a series of picture frames.
Wall panels are constructed by using panel moldings, which are specifically designed for wall panel creation. Click on following link to learn about

Typically, wall panels are installed on the upper part of the wall or below the chair rail molding. Once mounted to a single colored wall, panel moldings
create a pattern of trim work. Wall panels may also create more complex patterns, with the trim work enclosing a section of wall that is painted a different
accent color to the main wall color. This creates an illusion; the wall panel seems to be carved directly from the wall.
Over the years, wainscoting has becomes one of the most popular wall treatments. Wainscoting is a wall treatment
that incorporates chair rail moldings, panel moldings, and decorative molding corners to form frames and wall panels. Wainscoting is a beautiful decorative
treatment commonly used for the lower part of the wall.
Designers often refer to the ceiling as "the fourth wall". The ceiling is often an afterthought for many homeowners; it is often considered uncharted territory. However, there is no better place to apply panel molding
than the ceiling, especially when panel molding is applied to the walls.
Creating a Polished Look
You can create a polished look with ceiling panels, complimented by ornate corner moldings where they meet in the corners of the ceiling panels. On the walls,
the same motifs may be used to create the wall panels, but it is recommended that less ornate corner moldings are used as to avoid an overpowering look.
Creating wall panels with panel moldings is an easy way to transform a typically unadorned space into an example of interesting architectural detail. By incorporating
the elegance of wall panels into your home, you create a warm and inviting room. However, just as with any home design project, there are guidelines to be observed.
Wall moldings, decorative corners
chair-rails carry a sense of formality
throughout a room. These architectural details are simple on their own; yet, they bring a dramatic
visual interest once they are assembled as double panels--straight corners combined with inside curved corners.
You can select a straight panel molding for the outside layer, then inset with the same or smaller panel, use curved corners. Voila, you have made it your own arrangement! Here the gilded
Adam style sconces
really stand out when framed on the walls with these architectural details.
Design Tip: If you are installing wall panels both above and below the chair rail molding, you must take care to measure the widths of the wall panels so
that the "set" (the wall panel directly above the chair rail, and directly below) precisely line up to create a professional, uniform look. Click on following link to
