Great Crown Molding Ideas Available at Volterra Architectural Products
Learn about great crown molding ideas, courtesy of Volterra Architectural Products, that can really make a room stand out.
Small and Simple
Rooms with low ceilings can be made to look larger with simple moldings along the edges of the walls. Small moldings are usually around an inch or less in diameter and have simple patterns, but they help finish off a room and make the ceiling appear bigger.
In small homes, it’s possible to overdo the trim, making it look crowded and gaudy. However, there are still ways to show off great moldings in small homes, even with large pieces of trim. Placing moldings along the tops of windows, cabinets, or bookcases only, instead of throughout the entire room, helps to open up more ceiling space and draws extra attention to the most impressive pieces of millwork.
Big and Bold
Very large rooms or living spaces with high ceilings can really afford to show off extravagant molding. The biggest pieces can reach nine inches or more in length, drawing attention upward. More intricate moldings evoke old-fashioned wealth and elegance, while simpler and more angular profiles lend a modern, dramatic feel.
Moldings can be used well as accent millwork pieces, which can be painted in a unique color that is echoed throughout the room, or left with a wood finish to add a natural touch to the space. These crown molding ideas from Volterra should help anyone considering new moldings to get started updating the look of their home today.
