Edinburgh Coving Installation (EH1): The even, hard lines seen where walls meet ceilings can often seem harsh to some homeowners, and the classic way of dealing with this is to soften them by the introduction of decorative mouldings and coving.

Of course whether or not you ultimately have coving put up in your property is down to personal choice.

What is the Difference Between Coving and Cornice?

A commonplace question that we're asked is "What is the difference between coving and cornice?" and this is extremely mystifying for many householders in Edinburgh. The answer that you'll perhaps not be anticipating, is that they are basically the same. The principal thing that sets the two apart is that a coving typically has a simple design, whilst a cornice is frequently more fancy and ornate. Originally, the expression coving was used for a simple "C" shaped moulding that was widespread in post-world war period in Edinburgh. Cornices, in contrast, are normally extremely elaborate mouldings that will need to be cut and put up by a master craftsman in Edinburgh if they are to be installed properly.
