Incorporate Millwork Into Your Home With These 4 Tips, Norwood, Ohio

Custom millwork has a rustic charm that looks beautiful in modern interior designs. There are so many ways to incorporate it into your design scheme that will add function and practicality to your home. Here are a handful of ideas on how to use custom millwork throughout your space. 

4 Tips to Use Millwork in Your Home

1. Crown Molding

Though not exactly functional, crown molding plays a significant aesthetic role in your home interior. It frames the space and highlights your furniture, artwork, and decor. Use classic colonial or ornate cornice molding milled from reclaimed lumber to add warmth to your space. 

2. Stairs & Banisters

millworkStairs and banisters take on an elevated look when custom milled. Hand-carved banisters, for instance, will lend a touch of elegance to your staircase. Wooden stairs that are open on one side and have a wrap-around lower step look excellent leading a deck to an entryway. 

3. Cabinets

Custom cabinets provide you with storage solutions that meet the specific needs of your home. Millwork cabinets in your kitchen, for example, will make the space feel more welcoming while giving you more room to store dishes and cookware. Install swivel cabinets specially designed for herbs and spices or slide-out cabinets for garbage bins. 

4. Shelving

Though less common in modern interior design, built-in shelving is practical and elegant. Have a professional millworker tailor-make shelves for your living room that fit your books, family photos, and decorations. Consider lining an entire office space with shelves, or have shelving built into your closets for folded clothes, shoes, and accessories.
