Get Creative with Your Crown Molding & Other Decorative Elements

Published: 05/25/2018 04:58:30 PM

Is your home in desperate need of some design elements to help it stand out amongst the cookie cutter houses in your neighborhood? What could possibly transform blah to beautiful in very little time and inexpensively? Decorative crown molding is the answer. You can install molding just about anywhere. It is lightweight, durable, comes in different heights and designs, and can even be stacked to create unique design elements that truly stand out. Here are some creative and ingenious ideas that will have you turning any space in and outside your home into a DIY marvel.

Lights, Camouflage

If you are seeking some decorative indirect lighting whether it be up towards the ceiling or focused on the base of your walls, cornice molding can hold a variety of indirect lighting fixtures. This application for up or downlighting can instantly provide an upgrade to the ambience with a balanced flow of light throughout your room.

No need to stop with just lighting. Further enhance your living area with other creative decorating crown molding uses, as the possibilities are limitless. One idea, for example, is if you have ugly speaker or cable wires that could use some camouflage, you can simply lay them behind the crown molding to never be seen again.

Dressing it Up

Although most discussions about decorative crown moldings focus on embellishing walls, when it comes to creative uses, do not forget areas of your room like the windows, staircases and fireplace. There are stair brackets that will make your staircase pop and casings to adorn your windows. Even your fireplace can be transformed using crown molding along with corbels and accent pieces.

First Impressions

The outside of your home can make a statement before anyone enters it. What does yours say? If it is crying out for some serious curb appeal, consider adding some attention-getting decorative elements around your windows and doors. Available entry & window systems are designed to complement your homeâs exterior with window trims, headers, panels and shutters. In addition, installing columns on either side of your entryway can further increase your homeâs curb appeal and have the neighbors envious.
