We have thousands of moulding profiles in our library with new ones being custom ground each week. Take a look through our moulding library and sort by the type or dimension of the profile you are looking for.
eg: case moulding, base moulding, crown moulding, T&G, chair rail, etc

Type of Moulding Profiles
Our library database above can be sorted by moulding type. Crown moulding, base moulding, case moulding, chair rail moulding, etc are all types of mouldings that basically state the application of that particular profile. In most cases the shape of the profile can be obvious as to what type it is but here is an introduction to the types of moulding profiles in the millwork universe.
Probably the most well known and understood type of of moulding, the crown sits at the top of interior walls providing a detail between the ceiling the the wall. Also the cornice profile found at the top of kitchen cabinets, builts ins, or even free standing casework like armoires or even chests of drawers. These can be made flat where the spring angle (that angle the moulding makes from the wall) is cut into the edges or as a solid or glued up block. The solid block approach is often used in very large profiles with deep coves that have the potential to be unstable but also requiring much larger width raw material to run. Finally very large and complex crown or cornice mouldings can be stacked with several different profiles adding to an overall appearance.
Base Moulding Profiles
On the converse from the crown, sitting at the floor and wall junction is the base or baseboard moulding. These can be simple flat boards or highly ornate with a varity of coves, beads, and astragal patterns. The width of these profiles will also span a wide range where in a lot of traditional patterns it is common to see 10 and 12″ wide base profiles. These can be a single profile or several stacked. In this instance we can have plinth or astragals or backbands used in conjunction with the base profile to create a compelling statement.
These little profiles sit outside the baseboard moulding and cover the expansion gaps between a hardwood floor and the wall. Because wood moves the flooring needs to have room to expand inside the confines of a room. The shoe moulding cleverly attached to baseboard and floats over top of the floor allowing for that expansion.
Simply put, case moulding wraps around features like doors and windows. Often these can appear similar to base profiles but usually have greater thickness. Think of a picture frame and this is another type of case profile. These can be highly ornate with hand carved details or as simple as a flat board with square edges. Sometimes the case moulding blends into the background and other times it can define a room. Case mouldings can also frame other features like wainscoting. Whether this be a frame and panel or a lap profiled board and batten arrangement, the case frames and sets it off from the rest of the room.
Miscellaneous Decorative Mouldings
Not to lump it all together but there are so many other specific use cases that its is necessary to do so. Chair rail, hand rail, corner mouldings all fit into this miscellaneous category. But then there can also be specific subdivisions of the major categories like beaded base or beaded case. Plinth mouldings will sit on top of a base or cap off a raised feature. Likewise, backband profiles or astragals will act like a cornice or cap moulding over top of another feature like paneled or beaded wainscoting. Digging deeper, lap profiles can make up the parts of the wainscot panels or simply an exterior ship lap siding. T&G or tongue and groove profiles can be used similar to lap siding but also provide a strong interlock to make things like flooring for interiors or exterior covered porches and ceiling. Sill mouldings sit underneath window sills like a decorative case but also can encompass the sill plate entirely into one piece.
Starting to see how many different profile and sub categories of profiles are out there? Its a lot to consider but it is safe to say that we have run it or drawn up a profile that will match your project need. This is not even considering bending these profiles around corners and other fun radius millwork applications like staircase railing or rounded cornices. So many fun things you can do with moulding profiles and we look forward to working with you on your next project.
