Gillingham Coving Installation (ME7): The introduction of coving or ornamental mouldings is the traditional way to soften the harsh lines between walls and ceilings. Trends change through the years and the use of coving in interior design is a good example, one year it's in, the next it's out, yet homes in Gillingham continue to be embellished with this useful addition. 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. Do you want stark, modern lines between your ceilings and walls, or smooth, classic transitions? The choice is of course, yours!

What is Coving? - Coving is a curved, concave moulding that is inserted where walls meet ceilings, to soften the sharp angles that exist between these surfaces. It can be bought in 2 or 3 metre lengths. You will find coving manufactured from extruded PVC, timber, plaster core, high-density polystyrene, MDF, duropolymer, plastic, polyurethane and gyproc.
All these materials and a staggering variety of shapes and designs too, like ovolo, ogee, dentil, Edwardian, cavetto, step, Victorian, egg and dart, art deco and cyma recta.
