What’s the difference between cornicing and coving?
If you’re confused about these terms, don’t worry. Also known as crown mouldings, they’re often used interchangeably. To put it simply, a cornice is an ornamental moulding fitted around the top of a room at the junction of the walls and ceiling. Coving is one of the most common types of cornicing, often less elaborate in style.
The term ‘coving’ can also apply more broadly to further types of decorative moulding in other areas, while ‘cornice’ refers to wall trim in that specific place. Other types of coving include ceiling roses, dado rails, door mouldings, and exterior mouldings – all of which are also available to order online from the Library Ladder Company.
Cornicing is associated with traditional quarter-circle or C-shaped profiles, with intricate designs influenced by classic architectural styles – from Georgian to Victorian, Baroque to Art Deco, post-war to present day adaptations. Modern cornices can even feature hidden channels for incorporating LED lights – perfect for creating ambient uplighting.
