Do you want to make a cove in your home? Coves are becoming increasingly popular. And that is not surprising, because cove making can be an attractive addition to your interior. It is a job that makes many a handy DIYer's heart beat faster. You can consider making a cove yourself. But beware! Making a cove is a precise job. A cove frame must be designed and made to measure. It is custom-made and the finish must be extremely smooth. Ideally, you want the cove to be as tight as possible around what you don't want to see, because you want to lose as little space as possible. Not an easy job if you don't do it every day. If carpentry is not your trade, or the cove is simply too complex to do yourself, you would be wise to outsource it to a professional. The carpenter can advise you on which materials to use and what dimensions are right. With a carpenter you know that the job will be done professionally. On top of that, Zoofy has a job guarantee, which insures your job up to an amount of 2.5 million euros. A reassuring thought, should something unexpected go wrong.
