What is Coving? - Coving is a decorative, curved moulding material bought in strip form, that is used to cover the sharp surface angles between a room's walls and ceilings. Materials such as expanded polystyrene, duropolymer, plastic, hardened polyurethane, extruded PVC, gyproc, paper covered plaster, softwood and MDF are used to make fancy mouldings and coving.
To add to the confusion you'll also have to make your mind up about what shape and design you want, with alternatives like ovolo, step, art deco, Edwardian, ogee (or cyma reversa), cyma recta, dentil, cavetto, Victorian and egg and dart.
