Walls and ceilings looking a little barren? Looking for a relatively inexpensive way to spruce up your home? Why not look into crown molding? Crown molding gives the sharp edges running between your walls and ceiling a little more seamlessness, it helps finish up the crevices and subtly pull the room together. Depending on your budget and style, there any many different types of crown molding available in the market!
There is the misconception that homes with lower ceilings can’t have crown molding as it may make the space look smaller than it actually. This is not a situation in which you absolutely can’t get crown molding. There are many options available in the market that you can use to your advantage. Use a thinner trim, and keep the fancy adorned designs at bay. Cove molding is a less angular version of crown molding and the transition between your wall and ceiling a little more seamless.
Skip the traditional plaster and add some warmth into your quarters with deep stained hardwood. This will also give your home a rustic vibe. If you’re living in a hot and humid place like the Philippines, hardwood might not be a viable option as if can warp or rot, remember the wood treated and protected to avoid any future complications. Alternatively, there is always an option to use faux wood- which is cheaper and easier to maintain.
Crown molding is not exclusive to your walls and ceilings, it can also be used on your doors, windows, and even cabinets! Give your home a little pizzazz and have your cabinets match your backdoor. If there is one way to tie an entire room together, this would definitely be it.
Don’t shy away from crown molding even if you have a small house with low ceilings, there is always a way to add a little more elements in your house!
