Available in longer lengths (up to 16 feet) without finger joints, these mouldings can perform decorating magic, eliminating unseemly breaks in the midst of a run of trim. They can cover rough edges around flooring and carpet, for example, or hide corners where wallpaper and painted ceiling don't quite meet. Mouldings can be painted to match or contrast with walls. Using the same color on both makes a room appear larger and choosing contrasting colors adds visual interest to a plain room. Most MDF mouldings sold at retail are pre-primed, so little to no preparation is required before painting. MDF mouldings also present a smooth finish with no troublesome bleed-through or grain raise. Of course, mouldings also are available in wrapped veneers when the warmth of wood is desired. As dramatic a change as MDF mouldings can make, they are surprisingly easy to cut, nail and install, requiring the same basic tools needed for wood trim, including miter saw, hammer, square, putty and shims. Carbide tip cutters insure a proper cut and pneumatic fastening systems further ease installation. Fasteners, recommended in a fine gauge, can be coated staples with a crown and chisel point as well as ring-shank or "T" nails. Used sparingly or in profusion, MDF mouldings can create a sense of individual style in a room readily bringing charm and personality to the homefront.

North American Precis Syndicate One of the most effective ways to transform a room from a blank slate to a personal vision is through the strategic use of mouldings, a method long known to architects, builders and interior designers. Mouldings can provide a signature backdrop for any room, setting the tone for the entire decorating scheme. And mouldings made of medium-density fiberboard can make the job simple by offering a wide range of styles, easy installation, paintabi-lity and low cost. Mouldings come in a variety of profiles. Sleek, flat trims are ideal for creating a contemporary mood while more ornate mouldings such as dentil or rosette profiles create a more traditional atmosphere. Mouldings can enhance walls, windows, floors, doorways, fireplaces indeed, any surface in the room. Many moulding styles favored in the past have been too costly in recent years because of the limited availability of wood. But MDF, an environmentally responsible product manufactured from wood residuals, is an abundant and economic alternative to wood. Available through home centers and building supply outlets, MDF mouldings are making a full range of trim profiles accessible once again to style-minded home decorators. Plain or ornate, mouldings offer a host of decorating advantages. Chair rail moulding, for example, divides a wall horizontally, making a small room appear wider. Wainscoting or paneling that covers the lower third of a wall adds instant charm. Crown moulding adds drama and formal elegance to any setting. MDF mouldings come in sizes up to generous 8-by-1 Vi-inch crowns and custom looks can be ( t I ,'-'"'-vv . A'- i Afrncrm i I RcsiJenl Anent Ballenisles Realty, Inc. Resales Div. 6941600 371-8145 pO)
