Colonial Revival Style Moulding Package - Whole House Interior Elevation Ideas featuring Kuiken Brothers Classical Moulding

Kuiken Brothers Colonial Revival Full House Moulding Package

Kuiken Brothers Classical Moulding is one of the largest, in-stock moulding collections available in the U.S., shipping to residential and commercial projects nationwide. All profiles are milled from poplar and are derived from Classical origins, discovered through meticulous research of the Historic American Building Survey and pattern books of the 18th & 19th centuries.


One element that makes Kuiken Brothers’ Classical Moulding Collection unique are the consistent details found in various size profiles which allow designers and installers to maintain a consistent look and feel throughout a home even with varying ceiling heights on different floors. This follows English Architect Robert Adam’s logical theory of reduction in trim details in his book, Classical Architecture. For example, every Kuiken Brothers Classical Moulding casing/ architrave option is available in a 5-1/2”, 4-1/2” and 3-1/2” proportionately scaled replica. Each Kuiken Brothers’ Classical Moulding base moulding has an identically matching base cap. Having the design flexibility which would have previously only been available with a custom moulding at the price and availability of a stock moulding allows you to offer your clients a distinctly unique house at a greater value. Plus, there are no lead times waiting on a custom run as these are in-stock at Kuiken Brothers locations.

Following this theory, we are pleased to offer you a Colonial Revival Style Moulding package for an entire house.  Colonial Revival mouldings represent a mix of Georgian and Federal style mouldings as the installations occurred between the two architectural periods in the United States between the 1770′ and 1780’s.

This home features 9’ ceilings on the first floor and 8’ ceilings on the second floor. The photo gallery below showcases the Colonial Revival Style moulding profiles that we have selected for the first floor. The fact that this is a public space with taller, 9′ ceilings allows us to be a little more intricate in our profile selection. This floor features a boxed cornice and 5-1/2″ casings.






Focusing on the public spaces with more intricate moulding details leaves a lasting impression with your guests as they enter the home.





The images above showcase the moulding selection that we have chosen for the first floor primary living space. It is adjacent to the front entry, but not as elaborate or intricate, with the thought/ philosophy that the four part cornice at the entry will create an impressive millwork visual as a guest enters the home, establishing the style of the home, and then allowing the design to scale down throughout the rest of the home. The ceiling height here is 8′ so the cornice detail is not as elaborate, but since this is still a public space we went with a large crown, KB318.

And finally, we come to the bedroom moulding selection.





This space is private and therefore does not need to be as elaborate or intricate. The crown size was reduced and the chair rail was omitted from this design. This affords the client a little extra in their budget to focus on the first floor details, impressing guests, heightening first impression experience, and ultimately increasing resale value.

Moulding selection is often left to the final stages of remodel and new construction projects, but with careful thought and consideration in the beginning, properly selected mouldings can completely transform the look and feel of a home. Kuiken Brothers Classical Moulding offers a whole new way to look at mouldings and a presentation that can easily be discussed with your clients at the beginning of the project.
