Coving

Coving is an essential component of the interior design of a period house, being most commonly the join between walls and ceilings and making the room proportions appear perfect. Whilst plaster coving is most commonly used for this purpose, wooden coving is more usually utilised on the exterior of houses and around the top of kitchen units, cabinets and wardrobes. Our variety of wooden coving styles and profiles are available in softwood (redwood) and a choice of hardwoods. It is fixed in place with panel pins to secure it in place, screws and wood glue. To make the joins around corners, the ends of the coving will need to be mitred at 45 degree angles. Once finished it would be filled and painted, although it can be left unpainted and waxed or varnished to match in with other wood items in the room.
