Very good quality plaster cove. These shorter lengths are easy to handle (3m lengths are definately a 2 man job!). Did the whole room 6.6m x 3.5m on my own in a couple of afternoons. The finished result has made a great improvement to the appearance of the room.

I am NOT a DIYer but with a bit of guidance I managed to install this coving painlessly. Someone with more experience would have done it quicker though. I love the finish it has given and the outside corners I bought with it really do it justice. It's heavy stuff but glad I used this rather than the polystyrene version.

Once the problem of sorting the corners cut (always a problem if you haven't done any coving before), the job was easily done and the product showed itself to be reliable and looks clean.
I would recomand it although I am not a specialist

Very god value for the money,good quality and easy to put up. If you buy these I would recommend downloading a template for cutting the correct angles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CharlieP Good quality and easy to fit
I am no professional decorator, so when faced with the prospect of skimming the ceiling/wall intersection in the back hall, I needed a slightly easier and effective alternative. The walls were not true and no matter how careful I had tried to be with the deep red wall paint, the ripples of poor plastering showed up all the more.
The Artex 100 coving was perfect for covering this unsightly, uneaven line. Firstly, I undercoated them and finished off with a white gloss, I had used for the dado rail and skirting. I did this because the back hall does suffer with condensation and I didn't want the coving to get wet and crumble. Measuring and marking up was very straight-forward. I cut the corner angles with a fine tooth tenon saw and mitre block from Homebase. It is well worth double checking that the mitre block is wide enough to take the coving.
Once cut, it is just a matter of using the Artex multi-purpose adhesive to fix the coving into place. The finish is perfect. Crisp white straight lines between the ceiling and wall and overall a collaboration between the skirting, dado and door frames.
Well worth remembering to measure twice and cut once. Skill level isn't as important as care and attention.

I found the coving to be very good value as a six pack.
