Esher Coving Installation (KT10): Not everyone likes to see even, hard lines at the point where ceilings meet walls, and if this is a problem for you, the solution might be to have coving and ornate mouldings fitted. Some would argue that coving was a design statement of the 80's and is not appropriate for modern day homes in Esher, others would disagree. To fit or not to fit coving, that is the question, and this of course should be entirely down to personal choice and not down to what is thought to be the current fashion. Would you prefer sharp, modern lines between your ceilings and walls or rounded, classic transitions?
What is Coving? - Coving is an architectural term, signifying a curved, concave material that is used to soften and hide the angles where walls meet ceilings within a building. A wide range of materials are used to manufacture coving and ornamental mouldings and these include duropolymer, paper covered plaster, plastic, wood, high-density polystyrene, gyproc, extruded PVC, hardened polyurethane and MDF.
Together with a choice of materials, you will also need to select a shape such as step, dentil, cavetto, ovolo, cyma reversa (or ogee), art deco, Victorian, egg and dart, cyma recta and Edwardian.
If this all sounds a bit much for you to manage on your own, you can always seek help. You need to ask the advice and guidance of a specialist Esher coving installer, who will suggest the recommended options for your particular house. Achieving an attractive coved finish for your home in Esher is your key objective, and following the tips and advice offered here should help you to realize this goal.

Your decorative mouldings and coving can get a little scruffy over time and may need some tender loving care to get them looking like new. This might be necessary for wall plaques, panel mouldings, dado corners, picture rails, ceiling roses, coving, fire surrounds, cornices, dado rails or corbels.
