Home décor is all about the details. Adding new décor and treatments to your current spaces can help turn your house into the home of your dreams. Renovations and home improvements can update the look and feel of any space in your home. Homeowners looking to add visual interest to their space should consider adding crown molding to one room or throughout their house as a means to create a bridge between the walls and ceiling.

The Types of Crown Molding

Homeowners should research the types of molding on the market before seeking the help of a professional in order to familiarize yourself with the process and identify your style. This will help make the crown molding contractor’s job much easier when they go to install the molding.

  • Crown molding: the most commonly used type of molding by home owners. It can be used on walls, cabinets, shelves or built-in furniture as a way to add a distinct touch to any surface or space. It can also be used to enhance your personal style. For example, ornate molding is typically used to add a traditional or formal look while a simple molding enhances a more contemporary style.
  • Cornice molding: is traditionally used to separate the wall from the ceiling. Homeowners can choose between simple molding or ornate designs depending on your personal style.
  • Flexible molding: gives curved or angled spaces a distinct look. Flexible molding is ideal for rooms with curved walls or an arched doorway. This molding is crafted using durable materials that bend in order to fit unique spaces and angles.
  • Frieze molding: is an ornate addition to a space’s current crown or cornice molding. Frieze molding typically runs under the crown or cornice molding at a distance of nearly half of the way down a wall from the ceiling to create a more elaborate look to a space.
