Wall Treatments – Decorative Moulding & Trim

Wall treatments come in many different forms and fashions. There are many ways to bring a room to life; painting a room is by far the easiest. But taking this one step further, the outcome can totally transform a space.

Most wall treatments can be easily achieved with common 2″ x 4 ” boards and decorative trim pieces that can be purchased at your local hardware store. A skilled carpenter can easily apply these boards in any arrangement or design that best suits the wall. The walls are then painted with a semi-gloss or high gloss paint to complete the look.
