Different Moulding Styles 

When it comes to finishing touches around your home, attention to detail makes all the difference. Whether your style is big and bold or minimal and understated, the use of mouldings will enhance the transitions of your walls to ceiling and floor seamlessly – no matter what your design style preference is.

Different types of moulding include crown, baseboard, chair rail, picture rail, board and batten, and wainscotting. Mouldings can be found around ceilings, doors, windows, and floors – adding character and aesthetic value to each and every room in your home.

Here is a breakdown of four different and loved moulding styles you can add to your home!


Craftsman moulding will achieve a modern and contemporary look with a classical edge by blending the simplicity of profiles found in early 20th Century Craftsman style homes. This moulding would look best in craftsman, colonial, cape cod, and victorian home styles. 


Unlike traditional crown moulding, modern moulding is typically less ornate, leaving a clean and simple finish. Commonly the more modern a design is, the simpler the trim and mouldings will be. Modern moulding is perfect for mid-century modern and contemporary home styles. 


Farmhouse design is all about incorporating rustic and comforting details around your space. It’s small details like moulding that give the timeless charm that is found in farmhouse designs. This moulding would tie together the design in any farmhouse or ranch-style home. 


Classic mouldings are designed to work with light around your home, creating unique shadows and contrast that add definition and interest. This moulding design adds a refined traditional look. Classic moulding works best in craftsman, colonial, cape cod, and victorian home styles.
