Alva Coving and Cornice Installation

Alva Coving Installation (FK12): The installation of coving and ornamental mouldings is the classic way to soften the hard lines between ceiling and wall surfaces. This interior design option is something that has certainly shot in and out of fashion over the years, but is still commonplace in Alva and throughout the United Kingdom. To fit or not to fit coving, that is the question, and this of course should be entirely down to personal choice and not down to the current fashion. Do you want stark, contemporary lines between your walls and ceilings, or rounded, classic transitions? The choice is of course, yours!

What's the Difference Between Coving & Cornice?

A question that we're often asked by puzzled folks in Alva, is "What's the difference between cornice and coving?" The reply to this query is that they're basically the same thing. The principal detail that separates the two is that a coving normally has a simple style, whilst a cornice is usually much more ornate and interesting. Initially, the term coving referred to a plain "C" shaped moulding that was popular in post-war period in Alva. On the other hand, cornices are often incredibly complex mouldings, that are tricky to install and call for the expertise of a master craftsman in Alva.
