A Guide to Popular Molding Styles, Queens, New York

From baseboards to cornices, interior moldings frame home interiors and add architectural flair to the space. There are several different styles of molding that offer a variety of aesthetic and functional benefits. Below, learn more about some of the most popular moldings for your baseboards, casings, and crowns.

4 Popular Molding Styles for Homes

1. Bead & Pearl

Bead and pearl styles are ideal for homeowners looking for moldings that are more ornate. They feature a series of symmetrical spheres that line the trim of your walls and ceilings. Bead and pearl moldings add an air of elegance and sophistication, especially to formal living rooms and dining areas. 

2. Cove

moldingsIf you’re looking for moldings that are a bit understated, the cove style might be a great fit for your home. These moldings feature a concave design where the walls meet the ceilings. They are simple and plain, which makes it easy to match both traditional and modern home interiors.

3. Dentil

Dentil molding has a classic appearance that consists of a repeated pattern of small blocks or squares. These styles are common in historic homes, so if you live in an older property, dentil moldings will likely match the ambiance and overall aesthetic. 

4. Batten

If you value practicality in your moldings above all else, batten styles are simple and perfect for hiding imperfections. They are commonly used along walls to camouflage the joints where two pieces of paneling come together.
