A QUICK GUIDE TO MOULDINGS
When redecorating, remodeling, or building a home, mouldings will be used. Many individuals have trouble deciphering on what type of moulding to use and where to use it. Below is a list of common mouldings, what they are, and where they go.
Casing is used around doors, windows, and archways. See our case here
Base is used towards the bottom of walls. It is the median between the a wall and floor.
Base can also be used in conjunction with crown to exaggerate the detail and size of the crown. See our base here

Chair is used in the middle of walls to separate colors, paneling, etc. See our chair moulding here
