Crown molding makes it to the top of most remodeling lists because it adds charm and value to a home, not because people enjoy spending a Saturday trying to get the corners just right. Luckily, there‘s a simple way to beat miter-saw frustration.
Trimroc molding from Canamould Extrusions is a lightweight polystyrene foam coated in hard plaster. It cuts smoothly with a handsaw and it goes up in a flash with joint compound. No coping, no tricky angles, and ragged joints disappear with a dab of mud. So in just a weekend, you can upgrade a plain room to an elegant space and still leave plenty of time for the rest of your list.
The products include cornice moulding, ceiling trims, light coves, corner wraps as well as ceiling medallions and beams and moulding to create the look of a coffered ceiling. Because they are dimensionally stable, they will not warp, shrink, swell or crack. There are also custom profiles and bows for curved applications.
Canamould also offers seamless drywall vents that are the perfect solution and the final touch to a well-designed space. The covers, which come in a variety of sizes and patterns and are also available in a door-style, provide a discreet yet stylish method of covering necessary ventilation and replaces ugly and boring metal ventilation grilles that have become the standard in many homes.
Another simple dress up, although more complex than a grille cover or crown moulding updates, is a new fireplace surround.
Fireplaces have become commonplace in new homes, but usually include a basic mantel with no surround. Upgrading the mantel and surround are great ways to update this focal point of a room.
The Surround Series by Stone Castings, also a Canamould offering, allows selections from a variety of mantel and leg combinations to achieve the perfect style to match existing decor. Whether looking for modern and bold or more traditional and classic, the myriad of options available will give the room a whole new look.
Made with real limestone, the Surround Series gives your fireplace the look, elegance and durability of hand-carved stone. It’s also a great way to add market value to your home as the fireplace is often a sought after feature buyers look for in a home.
