What is the Difference Between Cornice and Coving?

A question that we're frequently asked by bewildered people in Boxley, is "Exactly what is the difference between cornice and coving?" The answer that you will probably not be expecting, is that they're effectively the same. The primary detail that separates the two is that a coving typically has a simple shape, while a cornice is frequently far more elaborate and ornate. The term coving was initially used in relation to a plain "C" shaped moulding that was popular in Boxley in the post-war period. In contrast, cornices are usually exceptionally ornate mouldings, that are difficult to install and require the skills of a specialist tradesman in Boxley.
