UK Coving Installation (UK): The classic way to soften the sharp lines between ceiling and wall surfaces is by the fitting of decorative mouldings and coving. Whether the use of coving is in or out of fashion currently is hard to tell as it seems to go in and out of favour, but it is still used to embellish many a home in UK. You shouldn't however allow fashion to determine your choice of whether to have coving fitted or not, that should be down to personal preference. For most homeowners, it is a fairly black and white choice between rounded, classic transitions and sharp, modern lines between their walls and ceilings.
What is Coving? - Coving is a shaped, moulded component, that's used for decoration and to disguise the 90 degree angle between a ceiling and a wall. You might be surprised to learn that coving and ornamental mouldings can be made from a variety of different materials, the most commonplace of which are duropolymer, gyproc, polystyrene, plaster core, solid wood, MDF, PVC, plastic and hardened polyurethane.
Choosing materials is just the start of it, next you'll want to pick a shape from options like step, ovolo, Edwardian, cyma recta, Victorian, ogee (or cyma reversa), art deco, cavetto, egg and dart and dentil.
All these options can make it a challenge to make up your mind about exactly what it is you want. Asking the advice and guidance of an expert UK coving installer, might be a good idea at this time. The tips and tricks given here should help you to achieve a stunning coved finish for your home in UK.
