If you're considering a home renovation or building project, don't overlook the importance of coving. It can significantly enhance the aesthetics of a room by adding a finishing touch to your walls and covering unsightly features like curtain tracks, uneven walls, and wiring. This blog post covers everything you need to know about coving, including different types, uses, and styles.
Coving to Hide Curtain Track
Curtain tracks can be unsightly and take away from the overall appearance of your room. Fortunately, coving can be a great solution for hiding them, creating a sleek and polished look. We offer lightweight coving options that allow you to conceal curtain fixtures and create a neat and stylish window treatment. You can also use it to hide ugly curtain poles, rings, and pleats behind a simple curtain pelmet to suit your interior.
Is There an Alternative to Coving?
While coving is a popular choice for adding a decorative touch to walls and ceilings, some homeowners opt for using skirting boards, picture rails, or dado rails to add texture and depth to a room. Coving isn't necessary, but it can certainly elevate the look and feel of your home, particularly in Edwardian or Victorian style properties.
Coving for LED Lights
Coving is also an excellent choice for incorporating LED recessed lighting into a room. It provides a stunning visual effect and practical lighting, making it a popular choice for modern homes. You can introduce sophisticated mood lighting to your scheme by using indirect lighting across our product ranges for a seamless aesthetic.
