For the majority of people, cornice is a term which we are familiar with when we think of buildings or renovations. The join between a wall and a ceiling has the opportunity to really seal the statement of a room and break away from a traditional white ceiling with a white moulded cornice we see in new builds in and around Perth.
Like any component of a building, you want to look to be a cohesive one and fit with the overall style, period, and location, taking care to tie in the interior and exterior.
Familiar ceiling and cornice treatments may range from our stock standard white moulding we find in new builds through to the more intricate ceiling roses and decorative cornices associated with heritage homes.
Shadowline ceilings and cornices bring a different look and feel to a space, as how they are designed and installed is a little different.
What is a shadowline ceiling?
Whilst they provide a minimalist look and feel to a space, they are a little more sophisticated and detailed when it comes to their construction,
A shadow line is achieved by usng a specific metal angle as the junction between a wall and ceiling. The finish needs to hold a high quality so there is no room for rough edges, and the result is a room with “shadow” around the ceiling, creating a distinctive effect to a room.
One popular type of shadowline ceiling is a P50, explained below.

Because of its stylings, p50 shadowline works well in modern contemporary spaces (think MadMen’s mid-century modern apartments for architectural inspiration), and if you are looking for a cleaner color palette, clean lines and danish influence works well.
