What is Millwork?

In simple terms, millwork refers to any type of woodwork that has been produced in a mill or workshop. This includes everything from doors and windows to baseboards and crown molding.

Why Millwork?

The beauty of millwork is that it can be completely customized to fit your specific design needs. Whether you're looking for ornate details or simple clean lines, there's a style of millwork that will complement your space perfectly.  

From crown molding and baseboards to wainscoting and cabinetry, custom millwork allows you to bring your unique vision for your home interior into reality.

One of the most significant benefits of custom millwork is its ability to elevate the aesthetic appeal of any space. Unlike stock or pre-fabricated options, custom millwork is tailored specifically for your home's architecture, ensuring precise measurements, seamless integration with existing features, and a cohesive look throughout.

What Kind of Millwork is Best for My Home?

With various styles and finishes available, you can choose from intricate designs or simple yet elegant pieces that perfectly complement your décor.

Before choosing a millwork style, it's essential to consider your taste and preferences, as well as your home’s style. Do you prefer classic or contemporary styles? Are you looking for something simple or ornate?  

Some popular styles include:

  • Traditional/Classical: Intricate detailing and ornamentation with a focus on symmetry and balance
  • Contemporary: Sleek lines and minimalistic designs that give a clean look.
  • Rustic: Old-world charm with its rough-hewn textures and natural finishes.  
  • Shaker-Style: Simplicity while still providing elegance with its plain panels and clean lines.
  • Colonial: Simple and symmetrical designs with straight lines and minimal details.
  • Craftsman-Style: Emphasizes natural materials and handcrafted details like exposed joinery and decorative brackets

Further, consider the purpose of the millwork – whether it's meant for decoration or function. For instance, crown molding adds elegance and sophistication to a room while baseboards protect walls from scuff marks.
