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

Georgian 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 Georgian Style Moulding package for an entire house.  Georgian mouldings are typically big and bold with proud projections. The crown/ cornice is typically highlighted with a dentil moulding in public and formal spaces. You’ll notice these similar elements in the base, casing and crown moulding details.

This home features 10’ ceilings on the first floor and 9’ ceilings on the second floor. The photo gallery below showcases the Georgian Style moulding profiles that we have selected for the first floor. The fact that this is a public space with taller, 10′ 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 less formal, first floor living space. The ceiling height here is still 9′ so we have the ability to maintain the boxed cornice, but we did not want to continue the more formal look of the dentil moulding. The bold shapes and proud projection of the cornice and the 5-1/2″ casing still create a distinctly Georgian look and feel.

And finally, we come to the bedroom moulding selection.

This space is private and therefor does not need to be as elaborate or intricate. 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.

In addition to the package above, Kuiken Brothers offer a number of additional design resources for builders, remodelers, architects, designers and their clients:
