The encounter between decorative mouldings such as wall baseboards and door casings can receive complements to make the finishing on doors and doorways even better. Santa Luzia, manufacturer of mouldings, wall coverings and accessories, has two classically inspired solutions, plinth blocks and rosettes, which can very well be applied in contemporary projects, as long as the balance between styles prevails in the decoration. But what are they for, you may be asking?
“The plinth block is used to give an elegant finish between the wall baseboard and the door casings“, explains architect Josiane Flores, product coordinator at Santa Luzia. “The tip is to choose the plinth block model whose width is equal to or at least 25/64" greater than the door casing and whose height is equal to or at least 25/64" greater than the wall baseboard“.
While the plinth block plays an important role in the lower joints, the rosette is applied to the upper corners of doors and doorways, that is, in the meeting between two door casings. “Different from the plinth block, the length and height of the rosette must follow the measurements of the door casings“, advises Josiane.
The use of the plinth block and the rosette also facilitates installation, as their use allows that the union of the wall baseboard and door casing ends do not need to be cut at 45º angles. “A simple and quick top cut will give you the desired finish“, concludes Josiane.
Both are manufactured by the brand from the recycling of plastic residues such as Styrofoam®, “Polystyrene(EPS)”. It is present in refrigerator carcass, where it helps as a thermal insulator. The company has developed an efficient method, capable of making it possible to collect, transport, store, select and transform Styrofoam® residues into finishes for civil construction. The process depends on the partnership of different players, such as companies that dispose of plastic leftovers and cooperatives/waste collectors who find the material on the streets throughout Brazil and the World.
