When skillfully designed and installed, crown moulding is an extension of the style in the home. It can brighten colours, lengthen walls, and add ornate detail. Choosing crown moulding that fits your style is the first step, and the second step is deciding which rooms you will have installed in by a carpenter in Regina. Learn about four different rooms where crown moulding installation is hotly debated to help make the final decision for your home.
The bathroom is not a traditional place to install crown moulding, but that certainly doesn’t mean it’s not welcome. Homeowners sometimes have concerns about humidity and water seeping behind trim and causing damage without their knowledge. Trim and moulding can be sealed just as well as drywall. Fear of leaks and damage is unfounded; it is no more likely with crown moulding than with regular walls to call for repair services in Regina.
Crown moulding adds additional style and flair to bathrooms. One of the primary struggles with designing small rooms, like bathrooms, is that both wall and floor space are limited. Bathrooms can up their interest level with paint, fixtures, and unique cabinetry. Other than those accoutrements, however, there is not a lot of space for additional accents. Crown moulding makes bathrooms feel bigger with taller ceilings by shifting the focal points.
The living room is a traditional home for crown moulding. Often the living room will stretch into the hallway or an area of the dining room. The living room is generally one of the largest rooms in the home. Because of its size, it doesn’t need the help of moulding to reach great heights or look more prominent. However, it does require the assistance of the trim to frame the space.
Crown moulding is helpful in living room areas to delineate spatial breaks, and it is beneficial in open floor plans where it can be challenging to define each different location. Crown moulding not only helps wall colours pop and stand out but will also help you create vignettes that separate one area from blurring into the next.
In many kitchens, cabinetry reaches up the ceiling or very near to it. There is no space to observe whether or not crown moulding has or has not been installed back behind the cabinetry. The cabinets stick out much further than the moulding ever would, getting lost in the double installation.
Other people choose to continue the moulding into the kitchen and install cabinets with a large enough gap that the crown moulding installation is visible. The opening is filled with knick-knacks, kitchen gear, collectibles, cake stands, cookies jars, etc. The crown moulding offsets a playful kitchen by providing nuances of traditional sophistication.
The dining room is another area that where crown moulding is traditionally found. Some people install crown moulding at the ceiling and install a chair rail mid-wall and then decorative trim at the bottom of the wall.
Many dining rooms also install a tray ceiling. In a tray ceiling set-up, the walls meet the ceiling just as they would with no moulding. Then the ceiling has an area cut out of it that is raised a little higher than the first ceiling, and it looks like an inverted tray from underneath. Where the cutout meets the second level of the ceiling, the crown moulding is installed. Tray ceilings with crown moulding add areas of interest and often frame in a chandelier.
