Coves and cornices bridge the join between the wall and ceiling of a room. They cover up settlement cracks that typically appear between the ceiling and the wall as a result of heat expansion. 

The key difference between coves and cornices is their appearance. Coves follow a straight line along the ceiling with a C-shape arc, while cornices are a decorative form of plasterwork that typically features complex patterns.

Both have the potential to transform the look of a room and add an elegant, stylish look.


There are many ceiling coving materials on the market, and our team of experts will help you make the right choice for your project based on individual preferences and budget. Some materials are naturally more suited to certain types of projects than others. We typically offer the following types of coving materials -

Polystyrene -
This is the cheapest option if you have a limited budget. Lightweight and easy to fit, polystyrene coving looks simple and attractive. However, it does tend to be quite soft so can be prone to damage.

Plaster -
Plaster, in its various forms such as gyproc or hessian backed, is the material that coving was traditionally made of before modern counterparts arrived on the scene. We find it adds a smooth finish and is great for creating an authentic period look to a room. It also lends itself beautifully to decorative patterns. We often recommend this method for those projects involving the restoration of listed and historic buildings. Plaster coving is very heavy so requires careful fitting - that’s why so many customers trust our tradespeople to take care of coving installation for them.

Hardened Polyurethane -
Affordable and lightweight, this material is a great alternative to plaster coving. It offers the same visual benefits and is strong and durable. With its many advantages as well as the same visual appearance as plaster, hardened polyurethane is now replacing plaster coving and becoming the ‘new traditional’ coving material of choice for designers and installers.

We typically use polystyrene, plaster and hardened polyurethane. We’ll take time to get to know your requirements and recommend the best materials according to your needs and budget.

It’s always best to attach coving or cornice after a room has been plastered. This means you won’t be left with an unplastered area even if you change your mind about coving or cornice down the line.
