Embellish Your Space with These Popular Additions Nothing helps a space be on trend like custom carpentry work, but knowing the types that should be incorporated into each different room isn’t an easy task. Here are the top carpentry embellishments for mudrooms and bedrooms this year:

  • Chair rails
  • Coat hooks
  • Crown moldings
  • Custom bookcases
  • Custom built-in wall units
  • Decorative backer boards
  • Mudroom cubbies and bedroom cubbies
  • Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) moldings
  • Shelving units
  • Wainscoting

Scanning through interior design magazines, websites and social media feeds can help you choose the carpentry features you may want to incorporate into these rooms. From here, it’s best to consult with an expert carpenter who can help you choose the best features for you and your home. At Nolan Painting, your lead carpenter will provide you with custom measurements, and will also help you through the design process, so you can rest easy knowing that these carpentry additions will fit your aesthetic AND functionality needs.

These Materials Are Making the Mark This Year
When it comes to your custom bedroom or mudroom built in cabinets, birch veneer plywood should be your go-to choice. Because this material is heavy duty, it can take all of the wear and tear that bedroom built ins and mudroom cubbies tend to experience over the years. Plus, it’s finish is absolutely beautiful — not only is it smooth to the touch, but it also primes and paints to perfection, making the finished project a functional (and fashionable!) addition to any home.

Colors You Can Count on This Year
One year neutral paint colors are in, the next year is all about a dark palette — this year it’s all about the white paint! In fact, white is the top choice this year for homeowners when it comes to painting their bedroom or mudroom carpentry customizations. From mudroom built in cabinets to other custom carpentry work, any shade of white is the way to go to ensure these rooms are on trend this year. Just be sure to opt for a high-quality paint product, such as Benjamin Moore’s Main Line Enamel, to help your white look pristine for years to come.
