5 Crown Molding Ideas Worth Trying

Crown molding doesn’t seem like something that most people would consider a major point of interest when looking at a room, but making the right crown molding choices can have a huge effect on your interior’s overall design. Here are a few neat crown molding ideas that you may want to try for your next home remodeling project.

  1. Make Low Ceilings Cozy

A room with a relatively low ceiling can feel very cramped and uncomfortable at which to look. However, adding crown molding can add volume to the ceiling and visually separate it from the walls, resulting in a cozier and more dynamic feel to the room.

  1. Go Minimal

Thin, simple molding can be used to complete the overall look of an area of your home without ruining its minimalistic appeal. Using low-contrast colors work best because they do not attract too much attention and add a more “unified” look to the room.

  1. Crown Molding for Corners

Crown molding can be used to make odd wall profiles look less awkward. This is especially true when it comes to wall columns that jut out or are located elsewhere other than the corners of a room.

  1. Match the Cabinets

You can also try using crown molding that matches the color and style of other key visual elements in a room. For example, using molding with a similar style and color as your kitchen counters or cabinets are great for completing the overall look of a home.

  1. Go Bold

Bold, high-contrast colors on crown molding create a sense of variety to a room. This is great for areas, such as play rooms, offices or other high-activity areas. This also means you may want to avoid this in areas where you can calm down and rest (such as the bedroom and bathroom).
