Vinyl Drywall Accessories Vinyl Drywall Accessories

Common drywall can be made into fantastic feature walls with vinyl drywall accessories. Called ‘Drywall Art’ the ways to dress up drywall rooms and features are endless, with some artistic builders creating masterpieces from plain rooms and standard squared edges. These modern vinyl trims can be used for trimming and edging corners, ceilings, bookcases, door frames among other decorative ideas. These are a cost effective alternative to traditional features made from wood. Business is booming in the drywall trim market, simply because homeowners can now easily afford and install these moldings, and there is a lot of showcases where people can see what others have done and use similar ideas in their own home. Even professional drywall installers are starting to offer artistic services using these moldings.

Crown Moldings

Crown moldings add grace and elegance to any interior drywall. Vinyl moldings come in a huge number of shapes to fit your decor, from plain to ornate. Unlike wood, they won’t shrink or warp and you can buy larger crowns for a fraction of the price. Eliminating time consuming coping lets you finish your creation sooner, and can be installed by even beginners.

Use these crown moldings to create stepped ceilings and ornate archways as well as curved corners. These moldings are an easier alternative to old style plaster ceiling decorations. 

Corner Beads

Corner beads are long plastic strips with a central nose. This nose can be plain or decorative. There is no limit to the decorative effects you can make with corner beads. They can be used to frame doors, book cases and shelves, adding a softer feel than square edging and a decorative addition to your décor. Where older style corner beads added a subtle softening to walls and rooms, new types can add dramatic and artistic finishes to rooms. 

Ease of Installation

Just cut, glue and mud. Installing drywall accessories is that easy, even a beginner with the right tools can do it. These moldings are easy to cut as well as attach to the wall. Cut your molding to size with a utility knife. Adhere to the wall with special adhesive, or you can use drywall screws. Mud the wall and finish. 

Vinyl accessories come in a wide range of shapes and sizes to fit any need. From small beads to lightly dress up a formal room, decorative pieces that will add a focal point to any ceiling or balcony.

Uses

Make an inbuilt bookshelf to one wall and uses corner beads to outline it. Make decorative niches and columns using drywall and trim together. These columns look great in room corners and at the sides of inbuilt features. Use double drywall with vinyl moldings to create recessed niches and bookshelves. You can even make great bars and wall dividers this way.

Use drywall panels with molding edgings to create wall features which are easy to make, and really dress up any plain room. These can be used on their own as frames on the wall, or decorate them inside with wallpaper or paint. Make curving edges and features over doorways.
