Stepped Coving

Contemporary Linear Profiles

Stepped coving is a captivating architectural and interior design feature that adds a distinctive touch to homes and buildings. This unique coving style is characterised by its stepped or tiered design, which consists of multiple levels or layers that step outward or inward, creating a visually engaging and dynamic effect.

One of the primary purposes of stepped coving is to introduce depth and dimension to interior spaces. The stepped profile of this coving style draws the eye upward or downward, depending on its orientation, adding an intriguing sense of height or depth to a room. This design element can be particularly effective in spaces with tall ceilings, as it can make them appear even grander.

Stepped coving also serves as an architectural accent that can be used to highlight specific areas of a room. By installing stepped coving around doors, windows, or architectural features, you can draw attention to these elements and create a more visually appealing and cohesive interior design.
