What is and are some examples of millwork? Millwork refers to any woodwork that is produced inside of a mill. While it sounds simple enough, the woodwork is designed to accommodate the many different requirements of their clients.
Millwork is generally defined as commercially produced woodwork, and most examples of it include finished pieces that don’t need further modifications. Hence, architectural millwork is a vast industry that expands to meet the needs of different clientele.
Different types of millwork provide different aesthetics, and homeowners choose what matches their requirements. Often, homeowners choose woodwork based on how it affects their homes aesthetically.
Here are some creative examples of millwork that people add to their homes for a personalized effect:
Fireplace mantels date back to medieval times when they were used to prevent smoke from invading the room and direct it toward the chimney, effectively removing it from the room. Now, however, they serve a decorative purpose that enhances the fireplace and gives your lounge a homely ambiance. In case you’re trying to maintain a more modern look, there are mantels with flat surfaces. These have fewer lines for a sleek appearance.
Cabinets serve both a functional and aesthetic purpose. They increase the space of your kitchen, helping you keep items organized, and the variety of designs means that you can opt for a style that matches the theme. They are perfect for organizing, categorizing, and personalizing your kitchen and bathroom. Hiring a professional contractor will help you choose the best selection and install it precisely.
Vanities are an excellent addition to your bathroom or your bedroom. In both cases, they offer excellent storage capacity and can become a statement feature because of their looks. Consult your contractor and design it to suit your storage needs, and remember to match it with the rest of the furniture in your room.
Shelves are a great way to showcase décor and items that hold sentimental value. You can also use them to store books, family albums, and other heirlooms. In the kitchen, they’re perfect for holding spice jars or stocking food items in the pantry.
Doors are the standard form of access around a house. Since they determine the accessibility of your home, they need to be sturdy and steady. That means no loose screws or hinges. Moreover, you can choose doors based on the type of wood, stain, and design.
Regardless of the size and width of your doors, you have to choose a framework for them. Their sole purpose is to seal a door in its place. Doorframes are made of solid materials because they deal with outside elements. A poor quality doorframe won’t last very long if you expose it to harsh elements.
You can personalize and develop staircases to meet your requirements. Stair architecture can provide different kinds of visual appeal and vary in size. Some stairs are common in homes, while others are more common in industrial areas. Ideally, you should select a staircase that best fits your needs.
Handrails, also called banisters, are often located beside a staircase to provide extra stability and support. There are two types of handrails; integrated and wall mounted.
These are mostly installed for decoration purposes. However, they also act as a pillar for counters, shelves, etc. They protrude from the wall at a right degree angle. The horizontal part is attached to the supported shelf, while the vertical part is attached wall.
