Have you ever walked into a room and just immediately loved the way it looks and the way it makes you feel? As you look around the room you may be able to identify specific features that are enticing to you. Frequently people will comment on the flooring, paint color, light fixtures, unique architectural features, and décor as contributing factors for why they like the room so much. Embedded into the room are also features that you may not realize are contributing to the overall feel of the room. Crown molding is an example of this. Many times you do not notice that the crown molding that is installed in a room is what is truly making the room so astonishing.
Crown Molding to Fill Spaces & for Interior Design
Crown molding has been used for decades to help enhance the beauty of different rooms. Originally crown molding was installed for practical reasons. It was used to cover gaps where different building materials came together. As time has gone on crown molding has become a decorative element. If you are looking for a new feel in any of the rooms in your home you should definitely consider crown molding.
Crown Molding Frames the Room
One reason to have crown molding is that it helps frame your room. Many times homeowners think that they have to use a bold paint color or wallpaper to make a room stand out but this simply just is not true. Adding some crown molding will help frame the more neutral paint color that you have selected. It can also help frame your furniture. If you like bold paint colors crown molding also helps to make the color even more striking.
Crown Molding Makes Ceiling Look Higher
In addition to framing your room crown molding can also help your room look larger than it really is. If you have a small room crown molding is an excellent choice because it helps draw your eye up to the ceiling. This gives the illusion that the room is bigger than it really is. Some people are afraid that adding crown molding to a room with lower ceilings will make it look smaller but this is just a misconception.
Does Crown Molding Add Value to Your Home
Having crown molding in your home will also increase the value of your home. When your home has the sophisticated feel that crown molding brings it makes a large impact on potential buyers. When people see crown molding it sends the message that the home is well cared for which makes it more appealing.
Polyrethane, MDF, Wood or Polystyrene Foam Crown Molding

All of these materials all have their own sets of pros and cons to them. Before you make your decision you will want to carefully consider what the best fit for your home would be.
