Hartley Coving Installation (DA3): Softening the sharp, even lines that exist where ceilings meet walls is a design choice that might suit you. This can be achieved by the use of ornate mouldings or coving. Whether the use of coving is in or out of fashion right now is hard to tell as it seems to come in and out of favour, however it is still used to adorn many a home in Hartley. Fashion, however, should not determine whether you have coving fitted in your property or not, that should be solely down to personal preference alone. It is a fairly simple choice between stark, contemporary lines and smooth, classic transitions between your walls and ceilings.

What is Coving? - Coving is a shaped, moulded component, which can be used for decorative purposes or to disguise the 90 degree transition between a wall and a ceiling. You can purchase fancy mouldings and coving manufactured out of duropolymer, gyproc, high-density polystyrene, plaster core, plastic, hardened polyurethane, MDF, PVC and softwood.
Deciding on materials is just the beginning, next you'll want to choose a shape from options like ogee (or cyma reversa), Edwardian, Victorian, ovolo, cavetto, step, cyma recta, art deco, dentil and egg and dart.

Any experienced Hartley coving installation specialist will be just as comfortable doing coving repairs and restoration work as they will be creating new interiors. If the installation of decorative cornices and coving is done correctly, they should survive unscathed for years to come, although occasionally repairs may be necessary. This could be required for picture rails, cornices, panel mouldings, dado corners, coving, corbels, fire surrounds, dado rails, ceiling roses or wall plaques.
Though coving work is regularly done by specialist coving fitters in Hartley, it is more often carried out by plasterers or joiners (in the case of wooden mouldings). Make sure they're experienced in this kind of work before you hire anyone. A lot of care and diligence must be taken to get a high quality finish on your coving, and this can be painstaking work.

What's the Difference Between Cornice and Coving?
A question that we are commonly asked by bewildered folks in Hartley, is "What's the difference between coving and cornice?" The response to this query is that they are fundamentally the same thing. If you had to highlight a distinction between the two, it is that covings are comparatively simple in their design, while cornices are much more fancy. The term coving was originally used in relation to a simple "C" shaped moulding that was widespread in Hartley in the post-war period. In contrast, cornices often require the skills of a master craftsman in Hartley, if they are to be put up successfully, because they're usually incredibly ornate mouldings.
Hartley Coving Questions
In the past few months I've been going over the sorts of questions property owners in Hartley ask about coving. A few of our web visitors put forward some obvious questions that might be worth mentioning. The best ones appeared to be, "When was coving invented?" "When should I paint coving?" "Who fits coving in Hartley?" "Coving or cornicing?" "What is the best adhesive for polystyrene coving?" The majority of these queries will have hopefully been answered in this blog post, and if some are still to be answered a coving "Questions and Answers" feature is currently being created. My thanks go to these homeowners for taking the time to present their excellent questions; Jesse Hunt, Hamish Booth, Ciaran Duffy and Mya Pugh. Enquiries were also put forward by Madison Blackburn in Luddesdown, Bentley Carey in Shorne and Mackenzie Underwood in Horton Kirby.
