Cornice vs Coving - What's the difference?
Good question. Let's deal with them one at a time.
Cornice is generally considered to be more ornate and decorative than coving. Another difference is that cornice is usually not uniform in dimension - the measurement across the ceiling and down the wall aren't usually the same. Compared to coving, cornices are more likely to have intricate patterns that have links to various architectural periods - for example Victorian style is associated with egg and dart or flour-de-lys patterns, whilst Georgian cornices are more likely to boast geometric square styles. Our range of cornices offer a minimalist aesthetic, concentrating on simplicity and subtle changes in shape.
Coving, on the other hand, is more often related to mouldings that have a uniform profile - with the same dimensions across the ceiling as down the wall. When compared to cornices, coving is usually simpler in design and the profile is normally in a quarter circle shape. Although coving is available in many designs from various regency periods, it naturally lends itself to contemporary minimalism.
