York Coving and Cornice Installation

York Coving Installation (YO1): The introduction of coving and ornate mouldings is the traditional way to soften the sharp lines between ceilings and walls. This interior design option is something that has unquestionably shot in and out of fashion over the years, but is still commonplace in York and throughout the UK.

For most of us, it is a fairly black and white choice between sharp, contemporary lines and rounded, classic transitions between their ceilings and walls.
