This sunny new home on an East Bay hillside sings with colors that show off the crisp edges of the moulding. COLOR is so important for moulding!

The owners chose a beautiful soft green tea color for the dinning room, a cantaloupe for the kitchen, a taupe for the great room, and wonderful Disney colors for the children's bedrooms! When you talk about moulding, it's all about color - not too bold but not too timid - and the results multiply the return on your investment.

The family really enjoys their new color scheme and moulding and it was difficult to say who was more proud to show off their rooms - mom and dad with the dinning room, kitchen and great room, or the two children with their bedrooms!


The dinning room has a recessed ceiling which the owners accented with two layers of crown moulding, creating the feeling of a coffered ceiling with a contemporary twist. This kind of decision requires expertise - and Moulding Masters is your best resource for choosing the best style and size of moulding for your project.

  • daily and special occasion times - feeling happy and proud of the beauty of your home.
  • selling homes - improving interiors with paint and moulding makes homes both easier to sell and increases the sale price, in both new and older homes.
