The high-quality wood work found in estates and upscale traditional homes is often the product of millwork. Historically, millwork referred to any sort of construction element made from wood; however, the term is now used in reference of synthetics. In this post, we will explore some examples of millwork available on the market today and what makes its visual appeal timeless.
Modern Examples of Millwork
Some modern instances of millwork on the market today include cabinetry, wainscoting, bookcases, ceiling & floor trim, and shiplap. Depending on how it’s manufactured, the product of millwork is typically unique and one of a kind.
Timeless Visual Appeal
Distinct species of wood possess different looks when they are cut to be used. Millwork is especially interesting for interior designers because it combines craftsmanship and high-quality materials. Unlike pre-set materials with little to no differentiation, the use of wood in millwork results in looks which are difficult to replicate.
Interior Design Excellence
One clear reason for millwork’s popularity among designers is that it’s often the only natural material used to create features like trim and crown moulding. These details are often left out of new home builds, but are extremely effective at making a space look more luxurious.
