WHAT IS COVING AND CORNICE?
Coves and cornices are both used to bridge the join between the wall and ceiling of a room. They cover any settlement cracks that appear between the ceiling and wall as a result of heat expansion.
The main different between the two techniques is their appearance. Coves follow a straight line along the celling with a C-shape curve. They are fitted using concave panels that are attached to the wall and ceiling. Cornices are a decorative form of plasterwork which often feature complex patterns. Both techniques can dramatically improve the appearance of a room, giving it a more elegant look.
