Moulding Adds Detail to Interior Design

Upscale interiors require a custom, personalized look that can only be achieved by considering every last surface of the room. This means that architectural details, like moulding, must be of the highest quality, and must be carefully chosen to further the aesthetic of the space.

At South Shore Millwork, based in Norton, Massachusetts, we work with architects, custom home builders, and interior designers from all over New England to create spaces of distinction. One of our specialties is custom molding, which we can manufacture in a variety of styles.

Interior design site Houzz has a great roundup of interiors that use moulding to great effect. Take a look at some of the inspirational photos, below.

deep custom moulding

An extremely deep moulding is used at the ceiling in this room, creating the illustion of a higher ceiling and giving the room a lighter, airier feel.

architectural moulding emphasized by painted accent

Classic moulding makes even more of an impact when highlighted with a painted strip outlining it on the ceiling. Another strip of moulding outlines the painted strip, unifying the walls and ceiling and creating plenty of architectural interest.

Add an element of luxury by accenting moulding with a metallic sheen. Bordered with platinum, gold or bronze, any moulding is bound to look absolutely grand. This technique could work equally well in a modern, contemporary home or a historical home with period architectural touches.

Millwork in Bedroom Design

When designing distinctive, high-end interiors, the details are key. If you are an interior designer or architect in the Boston area and are looking for a custom woodworking shop to help you take your design to the next level, give South Shore Millwork a call.

Today’s homeowners expect much more when it comes to their bedrooms, and custom millwork can add that special touch that sets normal rooms apart from extraordinary rooms. This collection of bedroom design photos shows some truly stunning boudoirs that use millwork as a design element.

Custom shelving and built-in beds give this room a cozy yet elegant look.

Paneling painted in muted colors and intricately detailed molding combine for a subtle and sophisticated result.

Though paneling like this could be at home in a traditional interior, in this modern room it takes on a great graphic quality.

Crisp white paneling contrasts beautifully with the deep blue walls and keeps the room from being too dark.

The traditionally inspired custom millwork in this room creates a striking and beautiful contrast when paired with modern, casual materials like the rustic wood floor and grasscloth wall covering.

South Shore Millwork’s Cape Cod Project

One of our favorite projects was a private residence that we worked on in Cape Cod. We hand planed the wood work to give it that “old world” hand worked charm. We did the architectural millwork on both the private library and basketball court.
