Understand the Different Types of Millwork

Millwork is a form of decorative interior finish that is crafted from wood. Made to give corners, edges, and walls more character and vibrancy, millwork can be installed in practically any area, including residential homes, municipal buildings, and commercial locations.

There are many type of millwork that a person can choose for their home or building, and making the right choice can seem daunting. To get started, let’s take a look at a few of the basic types of millwork…

Complete Millwork Services

Custom Designed & Built Entertainment Center
One of the most common forms of millwork service in the US and right here in south Florida is complete millwork services, which essentially encompasses the entire home or building. This type of service generally covers a large-scale operation like a new commercial building. Complete millwork services are also available for custom residential projects.

Custom-Profile Millwork

There are many homes all over the country that have “high-quality” products, but it’s the customized millwork that truly gets noticed. By choosing a custom profile, homeowners get the exact profile they want. This adds a feeling of personalization and uniqueness to the home, and can also be very effective for enhancing the interest in a home when it comes time to sell. After all, there are hundreds of homes with manufactured millwork, but custom millwork makes the interior stand out in the minds of buyers.

Custom Radius Millwork

Round or Curved Moulding
Any part of a home that has rounded edges and curves can be enhanced by radius millwork. Common areas that receive radius millwork include handrails, circular windows, arches, curved walls, bending stairways, corners on kitchen counters, and more. Once again, customizing the radius millwork is an excellent way to enhance the home.

In-House Knife Grinding

In-house knife grinding is the practice of matching new millwork with the existing patterns and shapes. This type of service is often used in areas that have been partially damaged by fire or water. For example, you might have had a lower part of a handrail damaged by flooding, while the rest of the rail is perfectly fine. With in-house knife grinding, a custom profile can be perfectly matched to the existing rail so there is no noticeable difference between the new and old wood.

No matter which type of millwork you need for your home, it’s important to remember that true quality and uniqueness matter more than price. Just because something is expensive and labeled as a “high-quality” product does not necessarily mean that it is the right fit for a home. Choosing general products and designs, and paying a high price for them, may give you the millwork you want right away, but in the long run, customized millwork is a wiser choice. Investing in custom millwork, including designs and finishes, is a more effective way to enhance the appeal of your home.

With custom millwork, you not only enjoy your home more when you live in it, when it comes time to sell, you will increase your chances of quickly finding a buyer who will meet your asking price.
