What is the Difference Between Cornice & Coving?

A commonplace question that we're asked is "What's the difference between cornice and coving?" and this can be quite bewildering for many property owners in St Ives. Essentially the response is that they're one and the same. The main factor that sets the two apart is that a coving usually has a simple design, whilst a cornice is usually far more fancy and ornate. Originally, the expression coving referred to a basic "C" shaped concave moulding that was widely used in post-world war period in St Ives. In comparison, cornices sometimes require the expertise of a master tradesman in St Ives, if they are to be successfully installed, as they are usually, though not always, extremely ornate mouldings.
