Door Swings

Most folks find door swings confusing. It all depends on where you’re standing and how the door swings into the area where you want to go.

Our Helpful Remodeling Guides: Moulding Profiles

Moulding… woodwork… trim. It’s about incorporating a decorative element throughout your home. (For example, think about doors, windows, fireplaces, chair rails and much more!) Our helpful remodeling guides show some basic moulding profiles. Not sure where to start? Keep it simple with one profile or combine two or more profiles to create an original look that’s all your own.

Moulding Build-ups

A build-up is just a combination of two or more moulding profiles which create a new design. And with a little imagination, you’ll be able to make it a custom look all your own. Then use that same build-up throughout your home to keep a consistent appearance from room to room. Max T. Value says the decorative design possibility to create your style is endless!
