If you’re like most people, you don’t walk into a room and immediately notice the crown molding. Crown molding blends the border between wall and ceiling, giving a room a polished, professionally designed look. Without it, rooms can feel somewhat barren and incomplete.
The good news?
Using Crown Molding to “Fool the Eye”
Even the simplest one-piece crown molding can really transform a room from simple to stylish. However, in a room with certain problems, crown molding can really come to the rescue as a simple, inexpensive solution. For example, if new home settling has taken a toll on the joint between wall and ceiling, an attractive crown molding can cover the cracks while adding a subtle, attractive touch to your décor.
In addition, you can fool the eye by choosing the right shape and color for your crown molding. If a room appears too tall, too short or too dark, you can visually fix these issues by installing crown molding. Speak with a designer, or use small samples of various profiles to experiment with different shapes and with contrasting or matching paint colors.
New Materials and Looks for Crown Molding
Natural or painted wood is what many people envision when they think about crown molding. While this is an attractive and classic choice, there are many contemporary options available as well. Look for molded plaster with an array of shapes and designs, or stamped metal for a unique profile.
Some crown molding can even do double duty. Hollow PVC crown molding is lightweight, inexpensive, and is a fabulous way to hide television cables or power cords without cutting into your walls. Another dramatic option is lighted crown molding. This can offer a soft, diffused lighting perfect for hallways and staircases.
