Swansea Coving Installation (SA1): The hard lines which exist between ceilings and walls don't appeal to all householders and using decorative mouldings or coving is a good way to soften those lines. Coving certainly seems to shoot in and out of fashion throughout the years, it is never really in, and it is never really out, but homeowners in Swansea continue to adorn their properties with it. Of course whether or not you ultimately have coving put up in your property is down to personal choice. You have a simple choice to make, should you opt for stark, contemporary lines or smooth, classic transitions?

What is Coving? - Coving is a shaped material, sold in strips, that is used as a decorative element to cover the sharp, ninety degree angles between the surfaces of a room (walls and ceilings specifically). You may be surprised to learn that decorative mouldings and coving can be manufactured from several materials, the most commonplace of which are duropolymer, plaster core, gyproc, plastic, solid wood, high-density polystyrene, hardened polyurethane, MDF and extruded PVC.
To add to the confusion you'll also have to make your mind up about what design you want, with alternatives like Victorian, dentil, art deco, step, cyma reversa (or ogee), cavetto, egg and dart, ovolo, cyma recta and Edwardian.
