Rustic interior design is all about bringing the outdoors inside. It’s about nature-inspired decor, exposed wood, warm earthy colors and organic elements. Whether you’re building a new home or doing some remodeling, here are some design tips you can use to create a rustic room.

Wood Paneling 

Wood paneling is arguably one of the most important and most popular design features of a rustic room because it adds an element of nature and warmth to your space.

This gorgeous rustic bedroom out of Denver features a shiplap ceiling with exposed wood beams.

A pallet accent wall turns this coastal-style living room into a rustic retreat.

Rustic Accents by Woodgrain Millwork are fully finished wall panels that can be easily installed—either in a classic shiplap pattern or traditional no-gap pattern—as accent planks to add some rustic charm. We offer two colors, Weathered Gray and Rough Sawn Oak, that are now available at The Home Depot.

Barn Doors

Installing barn doors is another easy way to add rustic design to any room. These unique sliding doors, which resemble a door you would see in a barn, make you feel at one with nature while also doubling as an accent piece.

Barn doors really add warmth and beauty to this modern rustic bathroom.

Here at Woodgrain Doors, we offer several barn door designs in multiple panel styles. You can check out our inventory here.

Rustic Decor

Design features like reclaimed wood furniture, animal-inspired textures, and industrial hardware can quickly transform a space into a rustic room.

A reclaimed wood desk, parquet wood floors, a neutral color palette and an industrial-style light fixture add character to this rustic office. We also love the use of wood wainscoting, as well as dark wood cove and crown moulding.

The most luxurious hotels spare no expense when it comes to design and decor. One widely used design feature is moulding. Moulding adds architectural elegance, sophistication and depth to hotel lobbies, dining rooms, bedrooms and more. Check out some of the most legendary luxury hotels from around the world that are utilizing moulding in incredibly beautiful ways.

The Plaza: New York
Take a trip back to the roaring 20s with the lavish art deco Fitzgerald Suite at the iconic Plaza Hotel in New York City. Named after author F. Scott Fitzgerald, this Gatsby-era inspired suite is the epitome of glamor. Black and white picture rail moulding adds depth to the black and white wallpaper and artwork, while a luxurious chandelier elicits a feeling of charm and romance.

The Sebel Kirkton Park Hunter Valley: Australia
White crown and chair rail moulding perfectly complement the navy blue walls and black and white-checkered tile floor of this chic and sophisticated hotel lobby in New South Wales, Australia.

The Peninsula: Hong Kong
Ornate columns with arched crown moulding coupled with cove moulding along the ceiling really make this luxe rooftop swimming pool at Hong Kong’s oldest hotel pop.

Claridge’s: London
The Royal Suite at the opulent Claridge’s hotel in London is truly fit for a king (or queen). Thick white baseboards and chair rail moulding contrast the dark blue walls adorned with 19th Century French architectural prints. Dentil crown moulding in the piano room adds additional elegance to this Victorian-style two-bedroom suite.

Hotel de Paris: Monaco
Arguably one of the world’s most beautiful dining rooms, Le Louis XV at the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo is ornate beyond words. The walls and ceiling are essentially works of moulding art. Egg-and-dart moulding, crown moulding, cove moulding and more transform this restaurant into a truly eye-catching masterpiece.

June’s here, which means it’s peak season for homebuyers and sellers. If you’re the latter, here are some simple home improvements you can do to stand out amongst the competition without breaking the bank.

First, Clean Up

Did you know that a clean home could actually boost your appraisal value? Check out this article to see what else appraisers consider when calculating the market value of your property.

Clean, bright, and airy playroom

Getting rid of clutter and making your home “showroom ready” allows potential buyers to envision the space as their own.

Touch Up Your Paint

Rustic paint brush painting a white wall

Putting aside personal tastes to make your home appeal to any buyer is easy with a coat of fresh, neutral paint. Take a tour of your home with a realtor to get an unbiased look into where your home needs updating. Some quick dry wall putty and new paint patches up most dings on walls, and looks like new after a few minutes.

Install Moulding

According to The National Association of Homebuilders, homebuyers are looking for unique details, like crown moulding and chair rails. Whether your home is historic, a new build, or anything in between, moulding can add character and accentuate features.

Choose which rooms are the star of your home and work from there. Check out this Houzz Article to see if installing crown moulding is a good option for your space.

Professional installation is a good option if you’re crunched for time and intend to install moulding in several rooms. However, if you’d like to cut labor costs, there are plenty of DIY moulding installation tutorials to guide you.

Beautiful example of Finished Elegance's impact in a family home

Using quality moulding—like our easy-to-install Finished Elegance—will simplify the installation process. Finished Elegance does not need to be painted so it is ready to install when purchased.

Dressing up your home is the perfect way to close your current chapter and move into a new one. Planning to put your home on the market soon? We’d love to hear your thoughts on how you plan to make it open-house ready.

As the cycle of spring peaks, here’s a fresh idea: go green! Pantone’s color of the year, Greenery, is a burst of springtime succulents that invite the beauty of the outdoors in. Check out this video to see Greenery in action.

Greenery’s lush hue makes it an excellent choice for accenting natural wood and crisp whites. We found plenty of inspiration to bring Greenery into any home. Check out some of our favorite designs and color schemes below!

pantonegreenery_11

This design uses a grid scheme that plays well with the classic white judges paneling and trendy green color.

The green here has two purposes: Accenting the crisp ceiling beams and elevating the room. This is a fun play on a classic design that really opens up the space.

This design is a modern twist on a classic detailed chair rail. The chair rail was painted to match the tone of the walls, creating a subtle texture that allows the color to be the focus.

Another green-centric take on a classic design, this room uses moulding to create interesting depth in monochrome walls and ceiling. The wood tones and cozy textures soften the bold color take-over.

The large framed doorways in this room accent the green walls peeking out. This design is a subtle way to include a pop of color without overwhelming or compromising your home’s established character.

In our last blog post, we explored accent colors that complement crisp white moulding. This time, we flip the switch and look at the impact color can have when applied to the moulding itself. Before we go any further, let’s start with some basics.

Experimenting with moulding color creates a bold focal point; so keep your walls neutral. Just like you wouldn’t clash two bold colors or contrasting patterns within the same outfit, the same rule applies to moulding and wall color. It may be even more important in your home considering it is much more difficult, costly, and time consuming to change out.

Now that we’ve set the stage, let’s get down to the fun stuff—moulding color options!

Shades of gray

Warm taupes and cool grays are great if you want to color match moulding to your interior doors. Check out these examples that were featured on Houzz. These grays are anything but dull!

Bold black

These examples, also featured on Houzz, show that black moulding can actually open up a space. Additionally, it can create depth and accent architectural details such as floor patterns and windows.

Natural wood

Regardless of whether you opt for dark or light shades, or matte or glossy finishes, wood colored moulding creates a rustic look that complements modern farmhouse design. There are many creative ways to incorporate wood moulding. Wood can add architectural interest, like in this geometric design by renowned interior designer Steven Gambrel. Or, it can be used to add warmth to a picturesque reading nook, like in the example below.

Cool color

playroom

If subtle is not your design preference, then make a statement with juicy colors such as tangerine, lemon and lime. Check out the transformation of this once-outdated playroom by interior designer Bailey McCarthy. Or, dress up a simple kitchen with a pop of sunny yellow, like in the example below.

We will continue to explore color on our blog, but for now, we’d love to hear from you. Please share your thoughts on color moulding options in the comments below.

Holidays are settling down and the year is coming to an end. How many of you are returning to your 2015 New Year’s resolutions before crafting new ones for 2016? If you’re like me and many others, you had some sort of home improvement project on your list for the year. If that project was installing moulding, I’d like to offer a few tips to help you wrap up that up.

It’s no secret that I highly recommend Finished Elegance® – the most durable, flawless, and easy-to-install moulding on the market. For the person trying to wrap up a moulding project with a limited time frame, there’s just no better option. You can see the steps required to install traditional moulding compared to installing Finished Elegance below:

Finished Elegance Steps 

Because Finished Elegance is already coated with Eastman Cerfis Technology, it does not require painting. The benefit to you: less time to install and less frustration. You can see a video of the installation process here:

Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 3.36.30 PM

Whether you elect traditional moulding or Finished Elegance, here are some tips to help you get started and finish your project:  

    1. Educate yourself first. Pick your moulding type, and dedicate the time needed based on the size of your space. YouTube is a great resource not just for cat videos, but for tutorials on installing moulding, as well.
    2. Measure twice! Take time to make sure your measurements are accurate. Once you’re in the store, purchase the amount of moulding you think you need PLUS 15% more. Measurement mistakes are almost inevitable, and having that extra moulding will save you a trip back to the store.   
    3. It’s all about the tools. I highly recommended using a nail gun and miter saw for the smoothest installation process. If you don’t have these tools at home, you can borrow them from a friend or rent them.

Best of luck completing your resolution home improvement projects, and Happy New Year from all of us here at Woodgrain!

Is it already December? It’s hard to believe, but winter holidays are upon us, and my wife has been happily decorating our home for Christmas. Her enthusiasm inspired me to share some easy DIY holiday ideas using wood you may find around your home or that can be purchased inexpensively at your nearby Home Depot or other hardware store.

This first project idea came from a festive purchase my wife just made: a dowel Christmas tree. If you have some basic tools and 30 minutes to spare, you can follow this excellent tutorial from lifestyle blogger Rubyellen of Cakies. Don’t have dowels around? For a selection of dowels to purchase for the project, click here.

Did you just replace your old moulding with Finished Elegance? Don’t throw it away just yet! Courtney from Diamond in the Stuff recommends using scrap wood and moulding to create a festive Christmas tree. Add different shades of green paint for a quick and fun way to recycle leftover pieces. For a Hanukkah celebration, follow Randi’s advice from Sowdering About in Seattle to create an antiqued Happy Hanukkah sign with scrap wood.

Need a centerpiece for family gatherings? Robin from Happy at Home has a quick tutorial for a custom wooden statement piece using scrap 1X4s and 1X2s. She decorated her centerpiece with stones, but you could use wide candles, greenery, or ornaments. A versatile piece, no matter your occasion.

I hope this list inspires you to be creative this holiday season. Comment below to let us know how your projects turn out!

Finished Elegance

Wondering if Finished Elegance moulding is right for your home? We’ve answered some frequently asked questions below to help you make the decision.

  1. How does Finished Elegance differ from traditional moulding?
    The main difference is that Finished Elegance is coated on all four sides and requires no painting. It comes installation-ready.
  2. How does the Finished Elegance coating compare to traditional painted millwork?
    Finished Elegance is coated (not painted) on all four sides with Eastman Cerfis™ technology. Cerfis technology was developed and patented by Eastman Chemical Company, and Woodgrain Millwork is the only North American manufacturer to use this proprietary technology. The result is precise, consistent, and customizable coating that provides superior durability. If you need moulding that will hold up over time, Finished Elegance is exactly what you’re looking for.
  3. If Finished Elegance costs more than traditional moulding, how am I saving money?
    Since Finished Elegance requires no painting, the upfront cost is offset by the time, materials, and overhead savings.
  4. How do I install Finished Elegance?
    Install Finished Elegance in three easy steps: First, cut the moulding to fit your wall. Then, install the pieces with traditional moulding installation tools. Finally, fill/caulk to create a seamless finish. Click here to see the easy installation process in action.
  5. What profile options do I have with Finished Elegance?
    Finished Elegance has 55 unique profiles to complete any room in your home. Profiles include primary applications and decorative moulding applications such as build-ups, judges paneling and architraves. To see the available profiles and select the right one for your home, please click here.
  6. Can I paint Finished Elegance?
    While Finished Elegance requires no painting, it can be painted should you opt to change the color. If you are going to paint Finished Elegance we encourage you to take the following steps:
    1. Scuff with general purpose scuff pad or equivalent (320 grit or higher)
    2. Wipe clean with damp towel/cloth and allow to dry before painting

If you paint Finished Elegance, the paint can only dry from the outside in due to the coating. Therefore, dry times may be longer than normal.

Does Finished Elegance sound right for you? You can purchase Finished Elegance at The Home Depot stores as well as many ProDealers (lumberyards and door shops). Click here for buying locations near you.

For additional inspiration, take a look at our Finished Elegance Pinterest board here. You can also learn more at finishedelegance.com.

American Craftsman homes originated in the early 1900’s with the works of two prolific architects in Pasadena, CA. Charles and Henry Greene were influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement in England, and similarly worked to promote the fine touch of craftsmen in making a house into a home. From California, this home style spread throughout the country into the 1920’s.

These days, the term Craftsman is commonly used to describe a home that expresses Arts and Crafts aesthetics. This particular building style is best identified through its architecture and interior design. A popular form of the Craftsman style is found in a bungalow.

On the exterior, Craftsman homes typically showcase intricate millwork and great attention to detail. Many homes have low-pitched roofs, single dormer windows, tapered columns, exposed beams, decorative supports, multi-pane windows and large front porches. Interior touches include an open floor plan, natural materials, built-ins, and wide window and door casing.

Whether you currently own a Craftsman home or simply appreciate the delicate architectural detail, you can embrace similar stylistic choices with a simple DIY project. This Craftsman door casing tutorial outlines how to frame an interior door for a sleek, simple finish using 1″ X 4″, 3/4″ X 2″ and 1/2″ X 2″ boards. With only five S-4-S boards, you can frame a door to insert instant character and charm into your home.

Woodgrain Millwork is proud to announce the addition of our newest plant in Lenoir, North Carolina. This facility is Woodgrain Millwork’s sixth domestic mill and seventh mill total. With the support of the local community and the Caldwell County Economic Development Council, we celebrated our opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, November 6, 2014.

Woodgrain has a long history of product innovation and investment in technology. Our investment in technology in this mill will optimize the yield from the lumber and allow us to compete with global manufacturers. We will be manufacturing lineal primed moulding at this mill, with a focus on East Coast distribution within a 500 mile radius.

Throughout the construction and renovations to the mill, Woodgrain has been committed to contracting and purchasing from local companies as much as possible. Over the last year in Lenoir we have:

  • Installed the manufacturing equipment
  • Started production of moulding
  • Grown from 1 to 90 employees
  • Increased production to half of the mill’s capacity

Over the next year, we look forward to doubling our production, while increasing efficiency and reaching our full manufacturing potential. Woodgrain Millwork is proud of this latest investment, not only in a new millwork facility, but also in the Lenoir community. Thanks to all those who have worked diligently to get this facility up and running!

In most home renovations, owners and renters alike focus on areas that will be regularly seen by guests. While it’s important to create welcoming common areas, you shouldn’t neglect your private needs. Scientists estimate we spend about one third of our lives sleeping, so your bedroom should be the retreat of your dreams!

To create a peaceful sanctuary away from the stresses of daily life, your bedroom should reflect your personal style. A room that mirrors your design aesthetic will bring you comfort and relaxation, making it easier to get a good night’s sleep. Using only moulding, boards, screws, and nails, you can build a custom headboard.

Read this step-by-step “Mantel Moulding Headboard” tutorial to see how to create a beautiful headboard with moulding. Don’t forget to build upon the custom feel by staining or painting your new headboard for the desired finished look!

Creating sophisticated Halloween décor can seem almost impossible. While the thought of making orange and black blend into your existing interior design feels daunting, this moulding project provides a touch of sophistication using bunting. “Bunting” is a term for any festive decorations made of fabric, or of plastic, paper or even cardboard in imitation of fabric. Typical forms of bunting are strings of colorful triangular flags and lengths of fabric in the colors of national flags gathered and draped into swags or pleated into fan shapes.

Using spare moulding pieces from past home projects, paint and ribbon, you can create moulding bunting to string across a holiday mantle. For very little expense and labor, you can create a dimensional piece with high impact. This DIY bunting is the perfect way to translate your personal style into your next themed party.

Finished Elegance® is proud to introduce two new videos. Found online at finishedelegance.com as well as on our YouTube channel, these videos show the overall value and ease of installation of this innovative interior moulding line.

In “Benefits of Finished Elegance”, you can listen to the user experiences of a prodealer, builder, installer and homeowner who have just used our products to complete a home in Cleveland, Tennessee. With coating (No Painting Required) on all four sides, Finished Elegance saved our professional customers both time and money during the installation process. Virtually maintenance free, the homeowner could rest assured that the grandeur of her home would be preserved through the product’s rigidity and durability, and the building professionals could leave knowing they left a satisfied customer.

“Installing Finished Elegance” illustrates the ease of installation from the installer, builder and homeowner perspectives. By listening to the user experiences as well as watching the step-by-step installation process, it is clear that Cut-Install-Fill/Caulk is as easy as it sounds. With perfect, clean cuts and no painting required, the coated moulding went up quicker and easier than commodity products, which benefited all involved. Once installed, the pros finished the job with our accompanying color-match caulk and wax fill stick to create a silky-smooth furniture finish.

With a recovering economy, many homeowners are looking to make financially responsible home improvements that have a strong return on investment. Whether you are simply passionate about interior design or are looking to sell in the near future, one of the best ways to add value to your home without breaking the bank is by installing moulding.

The addition of moulding makes a grand statement, even with a conservative budget. Since the Victorian era, moulding has been used in American homes to add another level of visual appeal, reflecting superior craftsmanship and attention to detail. Not only does moulding reflect a sophisticated aesthetic, but it also adds richness and charm to blank walls unlike any other interior medium. Choosing the right moulding for your space adds warmth and energy that can be appreciated by homeowners and prospective residents alike.

When selecting the best type of moulding for your space, it’s important to consider the overall style of your home. Adding moulding that fits with the existing architectural elements will enhance the general aesthetic. It is also important to consider the proportions of your space. For crown moulding, a great rule of thumb is ‘the wider the moulding, the lower the ceiling will appear’. Homes with higher ceilings may benefit from wide moulding, but homeowners with lower ceilings may want to consider a thinner profile. You can also customize moulding with paint or stain to achieve the desired effect. Refer to our previous posts on installation and finishing for detailed tips.

While some home improvement projects require the help of professionals, installing moulding is rather DIY-friendly. With the proper tools, exact measurements and a few hours of time, you can fit an entire room. The money saved on a hired professional and time spent also adds to the overall value of the project.

Once the moulding is installed, it may also be beneficial to complete the room with coordinating accents. Popular moulding choices include crown, chair rail, judges panel, window casings, door casings, and baseboards. All of these options help to create a finished look with an economical price point. Whether you are looking to enjoy your home for years to come or are hoping to make a profit with the sale of your home, adding moulding adds value.
