Cove is a cheaper alternative to timber scocia and is available in 55mm, 75mm and 90mm projection sizes. Different sizes are used according to ceiling height and house style. The higher the ceiling the larger the cove. Cove gives a very classy and classical look to both new homes and existing homes rather than timber scocia, which is generally square and not as soft looking.
Cornice is a centuries old plaster of Paris mould making technique, which creates a grand and classical look for ceilings. There is a huge range of patterns, styles and sizes of cornice ranging from the small and simple to the large and castle like. Cornices can also be matched to any existing pieces and recast. With the resurgence of fibrous plaster ceilings cornice is also becoming more popular as the two are used traditionally in conjunction.
