The Purpose Of Architraves

Architrave is the decorative moulding that frames a door or window. Its primary purpose is to cover the joint between the door or window frame and the wall, and it also adds an elegant finishing touch to any interior design project.

Architrave comes in various styles and sizes, from simple square-edged designs to more intricate, detailed mouldings.


The most popular materials for architrave include MDF, softwood, and hardwood.


Frequently Asked Ovolo Architraves Questions

How Does The Colour of Ovolo Architrave Impact The Overall Look of a Room?

The colour of the ovolo architrave can have a significant impact on the overall look of a room. Lighter colours can make a room feel brighter and more spacious, while darker colours can add warmth and depth to a space.


Additionally, choosing a colour that complements or contrasts with the wall colour can help create a cohesive and visually interesting look.

What Is A Primed Ovolo Architrave?

A primed ovolo architrave refers to an architrave that has been pre-coated with a primer or base coat of paint. Primed products tend to receive two coats of good quality primer/basecoat.


Primed finish ovolo architraves are commonly available in the market and are designed to save time and effort during installation and painting.

What's more, the priming coats on primed architraves act as a protective layer, helping to seal the surface and protect the architrave from moisture, dust, and other environmental factors. This can enhance the durability and longevity of the architrave, making it more resistant to wear and tear over time.

What Does "Double Sanded" Mean?

When applying the initial primer to skirting or architrave, it's common for the material's surface (wood or MDF) to lift slightly - requiring light sanding before a second coat is added. 

This process of double priming and sanding must occur in order to acquire an even surface prior to adding the final coat. 

Many manufacturers neglect this procedure during the manufacturing process, resulting in rough finished products. 


Keep in mind that even with double priming and sanding, a final coat of sanding may still be needed before the board is complete. Skipping or cutting corners on this step could result in an uneven finish that requires more effort to correct.

What Is An Architrave Door Set? 

Architrave door sets are carefully crafted to provide ample excess material, ensuring that you have enough material to complete the job without any shortage. 


They are supplied with enough architrave to frame a single door on one complete side, making your door installation project hassle-free and efficient.
