Contemporary Cornice

Fitting cornice to a building (either externally or internally) has long been popular, dating back to the Ancient Greeks and Romans, who are well known for their classical designs many of which have been replicated over the centuries.

There must have been literally tens of thousands of different design profiles fitted to varying styles of homes over the centuries. Today, modern cornice styles tend to be simple, clean and sleek to fit in with contemporary designs.

Contemporary cornice styles with a modern twist

Not that long ago, there was a trend for home owners to decorate in a minimalist style - people simply didn’t want coving or cornice in the traditional sense as it was regarded as being too ornamental or fussy, especially when renovation was undertaken in a modern style. In response to that trend, we have completely re-thought how to decorate a ceiling without it appearing too ‘old school’ in appearance.

The result is our Contemporary range which has probably been the biggest shift in cornice design and also the most acclaimed and approved styling by interior designers and specifiers that we have ever had. The response has been so phenomenal, that this ‘family’ of designs has become our most popular product range since it was introduced.

Our modern cornice profiles

Each profile simply adheres directly to the ceiling with a minimal drop and forms a series of ‘flats’ and simple angles as it projects across the ceiling. Our contemporary cornice has what we term as a ‘shadow gap’ at the meeting point to the wall. Not only does this give a wonderful floating illusion, it also makes decoration or painting much easier and looks more professional. Being fixed flat against the ceiling (therefore with no complicated angles for the installer to think about) it is about as basic as it is possible to be when installing. It also still fulfils the function of covering over any wall/ceiling crack should that be an issue.

Contemporary cornice range

Different projections are available ranging from the relatively small C360 to the hugely impressive C354 that looks as grand as any traditional cornice but is right up-to-date for 21st century build.

Contemporary Cornice Side Profile

Typically these cornice designs look best in modern flats or conversions, but can work equally well in a house that has been given a modern makeover. To really add dramatic effect, uplighting cornice can also be installed on the wall, approximately 20cm below. The light being thrown up will really emphasise the beauty of the shape and angular lines. As there are no other manufacturer cornice styles like this on the market, this is room styling at its most exclusive.

Seeing, really is believing for this product range and it is difficult to appreciate the stunning visual look from a photograph.
