Boom of mouldings in decoration

Mouldings are a decorative solution that allows to bring personality to the room, while providing a completely renewed decoration. There is a great variety of materials for the manufacture of mouldings: metal, wood, etc. As an example, polyurethane mouldings are versatile, allowing to obtain an imitation of wood and giving an elegant, classic and vintage style.

In architecture, mouldings are used to make finishes or adornments on walls and ceilings. This decorative trend is also reflected in the rise of wooden beams:  exposed wooden beams have become a trend in interior architecture.

But their use does not only fulfill a decorative function, but it also allows to hide elements such as cables, small cracks or imperfections which, although they do not generally imply a risk, they usually break the aesthetics of the room.

How to get faux wood mouldings?

One of the options to obtain this aesthetic result is the use of beams and mouldings made with polyurethane systems of moderate moulded density to imitate wood.

Faux wood mouldings made from polyurethane systems bring a great deal of lightness to the moulding itself, thanks to the fact that polyurethane is a low density material. This factor also allows you to work easily with them, obtaining a wide variety of final touches.

Regarding installation, they are easy to join as only an adhesive or simple mechanical element are needed to fix them correctly.
