Why Replace Wood Mouldings on Furniture? It Adds Elegance

Why replace wood mouldings? The short answer is that it adds elegance and more detail to furniture. It’s a simple and inexpensive way of adding more character to your wooden chairs, cabinets and tables.

Through the years the wood mouldings might have rotted, deformed or simply damaged. Or perhaps their design feels a bit outdated and needs to be replaced. Whichever is the case, new mouldings can instantly give a fresh look to your furniture.

Proper choice of decorative mouldings

Although mouldings only occupy a small area of each surface, they actually exist in dozens (if not hundreds) of forms. They’re available in a wide variety of colours, patterns and styles.

For instance, there are straight and plain mouldings that provide neatness (they often cover the transition between wood panels and layers). There are also elaborate mouldings that are primarily used for decoration.

The choice depends on the feeling you want to evoke when someone looks at your particular furniture. It could also largely depend on your own lifestyle and personality you want to project. For example, you might want to replace the elaborate mouldings with plain ones if you’re now adopting a minimalist lifestyle.

Mouldings for protection

Aside from decorative purposes, mouldings may also serve as protection from natural elements. The gaps between wood materials will be covered because of the mouldings. There will be fewer entries (or the entries will be harder to access) for wind, water and other elements to pass through.

This is one more motivating reason for homeowners to replace the mouldings in their furniture. It’s about functionality and visual aesthetics. The wooden tables, chairs and cabinets will be given more character because of the new mouldings to be placed.
