Decorative Crown Molding Ideas For the New Year

Published: 01/20/2018 04:57:00 PM

If your home is all jazzed up with new furniture, flooring, and paint, but still doesn't look like those model homes you see in magazines, you might want to take a look at your crown molding. Crown molding is a visual pleasure that adds a touch of elegance that can bring an interior room or exterior surface together.

Rather than the thin crown molding found on many ceilings, a thicker version of the outline is currently trending in home and design. Large and extra large crown molding can come with intricate design, giving the room a classical feel.

A royalty-like addition to crown molding that is becoming more popular, is lighted crown moldings. Sometimes seen in public areas like museums or restaurants, lighted crown moldings are a two-piece system that project light upwards to help illuminate the upper piece. If the lighted route is just not the type of royal touch you want to give the room, there are tons of decorative crown molding designs to choose from. Athenian leaves, classic egg & dart, concord dentil, and Corinthian crown are just some of the many very detailed moldings to choose from. The detail ties together the rest of the d├ęcor in the room.

In light of "do-it-yourself" trends that are taking over the Internet and different social media platforms, there is now a do-it-yourself crown molding kit. Found here, the Athenian Leaves Crown DIY Home Kit is easy to install with the proper tools. A base kit can include enough to cover a room as large as 18 ft. x 18ft. The moldings in this kind of kit are made of high-density polyurethane and blocks made of high-quality durable PVC.

Decorative crown molding makes a dull room exciting. It adds height, depth, and intricate detailing. Almost no new construction homes will be found without crown molding in majority of the rooms. Crown molding is one of the most inexpensive ways to make a room come alive. It's used in doorways, to outline lighting fixtures, trace the ceiling, and for other ornamental uses to make a boxy room look great.

At Classic Ceilings, we offer a large selection of intricate crown moldings that add an elegant decorative architectural touch to any room or outside of a building. To learn more call us at 1.800.992.8700 or visit to shop online.
