Architectural Details – 2021
Architectural details, how much works for you and where to add it will be the focus of this post. Adding architectural details is not out of reach as an option for your design. Architectural Details can be added selectively to create a “classic” backdrop. It can call attention to the elements that are a room’s special features or its focal point. It can be added to walls as panels in place of posters, framed pictures or other collections. Architectural Details and Ornamentation designed with restraint and consideration of the architecture of the space becomes a part of the home and not just a ‘personal decoration’ which is not permanent. Architectural details add value, artistry, and a timeless beauty.
Moulding is a defining, transitional, element to outline the edges and surfaces of doors, windows, walls, ceilings, and the specific surfaces of those elements. There are many profiles to choose from with various recesses, reliefs and patterns.
Flat moulding depending on where it is used offers a flat surface parallel to the surface that it ornaments. It can be used to separate curved moulding or to finish them at the top or bottom. It also creates an opportunity to add additional ornamentation to the flat moulding.

The basic profiles of moldings have traditionally been enhanced by carvings on them inspired by natural forms. These carvings might consist of stylized flower or leaf forms, geometric motifs, spirals, or combinations of rounded and angular forms such as the familiar egg and dart pattern. The combination of basic profiles and decorative carvings create a rich vocabulary for moldings that has been utilized by Western architects from the time of the ancient Greeks onward.
