One of the biggest challenges with decorative moulding is finding products that can withstand the elements. Heat and humidity are constantly changing in a home. Your customers most likely live in a variety of climates. From hot and humid summers to cold dry winters, they need products that can withstand a variety of environments.
The solution to a variety of elements is clear: Polystyrene. At INTCO, our PS material are both dense and durable. They are a quality product that can withstand a variety of climates.

Another benefit to INTCO products is our art frame mouldings made from the same quality PS materials. Here are some tips on how to make the correct selection of frames and home decor mouldings for a space with high humidity:
Select mouldings made from Polystyrene.
The bathroom’s constantly changing temperatures may cause damage to wood mouldings. Instead, select PS mouldings with characteristics that will withstand fluctuating temperatures.
Maintain room ventilation.
Open the door and window as often as you can when not in use. Run the exhaust fan as soon as possible when you enter the bathroom, and for at least 20 minutes after a bath or shower.
Keep moulding and decor clean and dry.
Wipe down any excess moisture, and remove any dust or debris on a regular basis.
A bathroom is a space often focused on relaxing the body and mind. Be sure to select quality materials in your moulding and artwork that will not cause future stress and anxiety. Select a PS material that will last for many years to come.
