Wall Art: Turn your walls into an architectural masterpiece with moulding

Your walls are the canvases that reflect your soul, and mouldings are the frames that showcase your style.

Your walls are the canvases that reflect your soul, and mouldings are the frames that showcase your style. And the more substantial the moulding, the more impressive the frame.

Adding architectural charisma can be taxing on your design budget, but with a bit of ingenuity, you can achieve a great look with less cost!

Wall Art

From Blah to Awe!

Take basic baseboards that are functional but lack architectural interest and transform them into a gorgeous high-end accent. Simply stack inexpensive mouldings leaving some wall space in between, and paint everything one colour. Neighbours will think you won the lottery!

For a higher baseboard, leave a smaller wall space above the door stop, and nail another door stop in place. Play with different moulding combinations.
