Moldings can be made in a variety of different materials-- from wood to polyurethane, the choices could be overwhelming. When trying to make the decision on the type of material, you must think about how you will be finishing the moldings. If you are choosing to stain the moldings to add the look of wood to your overall design, than the wood molding would be the right choice for you. Wood moldings add warmth to the overall space-- the wood molding choices are: decorative sculptured wood molding, hand carved wood molding, machine carved wood molding, and pierced wood molding. If on the other hand you are looking to paint the moldings, than we would recommend for you to choose the polyurethane or polymer molding.
