4 Excellent Crown Molding Designs to Try

Sometimes the difference between a great and an outstanding room lies in the small details. One way to improve your interior appeal is by investing in the right crown molding design. Handyman Connection® of Matthews shares four good ideas you can try:

  1. Modern Lines. If you’re going for clean lines and modern simplicity, we recommend using Colonial Revival Crown. This style features a mix of Greek Revival and Federal profiles, resulting in a design that is both bold and light. It also features the double curved cyma and the S shape of an ogee.

  1. Classic Touch. Older homes have less space for crown molding, so you’ll need to use the space that you have correctly. For example, you can install Classical Revival top trim on your kitchen cabinets only. This leaves more room for natural lighting around your windows, resulting in a more open-looking space. The Classical Revival style is also known for its monumentality and dignity, and it can provide a significant contribution to your kitchen’s appearance.

  1. Accent Piece. Crown molding can be used as a visual cue to make the room feel larger. For example, the crown molding’s cyma recta curve can serve as an accent for bold-colored rooms. This curve means the molding is convex at the inner edge and concave at the outer edge.

  1. Volume Booster. With its elegant beading, Federal crown molding can add volume to a low-ceilinged room. Complement it with feminine and neutral accents to make the room feel cozier. Federal style crown molding was popular after the American Revolution because of its simple beads and concave shapes.
