    How do I choose a cornice?

    Choosing the right plasterboard ceiling edge for your room is often tricky. There are many styles of a cornice, each bringing a distinctive look to a room. When choosing one, you should consider the height of the room, the plastering techniques used, and the building style to help you decide.

    For example, consider the period or era you want to emulate. In other words, there are Tudors, Modern, Art Deco, and Contemporary designs worth considering. Any cornice should complement your existing home décor to retain continuity in your style.

    What's the difference between coving and cornice?

    Coving is a term used to describe a specific type of plaster edger to cover the gap where the ceiling meets the wall. It is uniform with identical measurements from wall to ceiling. It tends to be simple in its design and forms a “C” shape or quarter circle in terms of its profile.

    Cornices tend to be more ornate and have a much grander effect. Moreover, cornices can have different size “ins and outs” and a variety of patterns.

    Is Square Set Cornice more expensive?

    Most modern domestic homes choose cornicing to join the ceiling to the walls. Square set is the alternative where the ceiling and wall meet in a square edge for a more modern, contemporary look.

    For instance, a square set tends to be more difficult for plasterers and therefore tends to be more expensive compared with other cornice options. Square set does not allow even the slightest margin for error. Above all, the walls and ceiling need to be straight with a tight junction that stops nicely.

    Plastering rates can vary immensely depending on the job in hand. As a rough estimate, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has given some cost estimates. For instance, they state that can vary between $4 and $16 a metre for mid-range cornice installation. It can also cost between $5 and $10 a metre for supplying and installing mid-range cornices. There will also be additional charges such as any back blocking that needs doing or fire-retardants added.
