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.
You can bring to your home the classic look of wall panels with quality panel moldings and decorative framing corners. Framing molding corners are
made to compliment classic panel molding as finishing details on the corners that bring elegance and ambience to overall decor.

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 easily recreate this look in your own home. 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.
How to transform Traditional into Today’s Contemporary!
If you have ever loved traditional details but wish to embrace today's contemporary style, here is a designer
Girl's Dream bedroom which allows this transition.
At first appearance, we think of wall panel moldings as in traditional design. As depicted in the room, the wall molding panels have insets with insets of sophisticated pale grey Damask pattern wall covering. There is not a more classic combination; yet, under closer eyes, there is an unconventional-newer installation.
Notice, the wood panel moldings above the tufted headboard, it follows its shape. A subtle and unexpected application, as the curvy line introduces a modern twist to this classic detail.
You can replicate this effect in 3 easy steps:
1. Draw a template of your headboard on paper.
2. Submit your template with a photo of your headboard.
3. We will take care of the rest to bring your custom look alive!

Let’s move unto the colors palette. The walls, fabrics, and accessories remains in light grays and whites- This maintains the look of the room very tailored; yet we can't help but feel the sense of casual comfort. The distressed wood finish on the night table, also provides the sense of "lived-in"
decor. The floral fabric on the coverlet is also reminiscent of a family heirloom piece - a warm blanket passed down from generation to generation!
Another thing I love about this room is a masterful color distribution. The effortless look of keeping of Pink all around. Can we agree "Pink is Pop"? All pink touches are tied together: from the glossy pink ceramic lamp, to the mini roses in a pink glass goblet, the pink ribbon bookmark to the throw on the bed. The chevron bolder pattern on the pillow does the very same thing
- brings contemporary touch with a "Pop".
A girl can surely dream submersed in her bedroom!
When so many of us have been conditioned not to consider dark colors on the walls for fear to feel closed-in, here is the defiant choice of
black. This bold, glossy paint color for its walls, invites the occupant to a room that exudes sophisticated elegance.

Architectural details are simple: wall panels and
chair-rail help to achieve the formality of the design. The
wall panel above the toilet mimics the mirror proportion. Upper thinner panels create the polished designer look. Subtle introduction of the wallpaper pattern by the sink area is just enough to create a feeling of comfort. I love the whimsical art pieces; they make us not to take it too serious and relax the formality of the design.
The black color and details make the room feel grand and chic. So let us be brave and recreate if one dares…

It's not a news flash that Gray is the new Beige. For several years now this cool neutral had been favored by a lot of home owners and designers. To create a good flow in any space you can paint all
architectural embellishments on the wall the same color, they still will provide a distinguish details while creating a
more contemporary look.

beautiful interior by Jaime Hayon. Synergy of classic architectural
details with modern furnishings and lighting creates a sophisticated environment
for today's comfortable living. The portion of the paneled wall below the
chair rail painted a darker grey color than the upper part, grounding and adding
more definition to the space.
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
