Dull, flat walls don't tell much of a story or leave much of an impression when you invite people into your home. If you want to draw some attention to your interior design, want to add some rich customization to your home, or need a slight change in the wall where you live; maybe it's time to install some custom crown molding throughout your house!
A high quality, refine crown molding in a home can increase the value of it substantially. Just make sure you don't skimp on the type of molding by getting the cheapest DIY kits you can find. Having your crown molding done by a professional with high-quality materials will ensure that you are putting money into your home that you could eventually get back if you ever decide to sell.
Having crown molding installed can be done at any time you're in your home and any room. It's not recommended to have crown molding done in EVERY room, as it takes away from the special and unique personality of the rooms it should focus on more (i.e., living rooms, main hallway, entryway, and master bedroom). In some cases, the main room such as the living room may not be suited for this molding if the ceilings are cathedral style or vaulted.
Various types of crown molding can be installed to complement your home's unique needs. Hiring a professional to go over the different styles and prices will help you plan out what needs to be installed and where. For example, if you have tall ceilings then a wider, heavy crown molding would be better suited for that room. It's also important to make sure your baseboards don't clash with the crown molding as it could throw off the look of the entire room.
If you're looking for a change in your home that isn't too invasive and adds just the right amount of flair to a drab room, then crown molding might be just what you're looking for. Going over your choices with a professional like Lake Door and Trim, and having it done the right way will give your home a brand new look that everyone loves.
