The most popular use for crown moulding is to install the moulding at the top of the walls where the wall meets the ceiling in order to add character, style, and elegance to a room. This will create a rich and luxurious appearance in the room, and it can draw attention to beautiful high ceilings. Adding crown moulding will also cover up any flaws and imperfections left from dry walling or painting in order to create a neat and finished look.
In addition to this typical application between the ceiling and the walls, crown moulding can also be used for other decorative applications throughout the home as well. For example, crown moulding can be used as an ornamental capping where cabinetry and built in furniture meets the ceiling. It can also be used as a decorative support for horizontal architecture and elements such as ledges and shelves. Finally, crown moulding can be used in combination with other moulding and elements to add decorative detail and complexity to fireplace mantels and shelves.
There are many different styles and designs of crown moulding available ranging from the plain and simple styles, to traditional designs, and even ornate and elaborate styles. When selecting crown moulding, your choice of style should be guided by the overall style of your home and your furnishings. Simple crown moulding with clean lines seems to work well with nearly any style especially contemporary or modern homes. On the other hand, geometric designs or dentil crown moulding can work well in craftsman style homes. To accentuate tall ceilings cove crown moulding will draw the eye up and through the room.
Another important consideration when purchasing crown moulding in addition to style is the wood type or species from which the crown moulding is made. Many people prefer to simply stain the moulding to match other woodwork throughout the home. Therefore, it is important to select a wood that is the same species and a similar style to the other woodwork. Finally, because crown moulding is available in many different sizes, it is important to select moulding that is properly sized for the room. For example, if you have lower ceilings, you will want to make sure that the size moulding you select is not too tall that it overwhelms the room.
