The addition of crown molding to a kitchen, living room or bathroom can take an ordinary space and make it look extraordinary. Crown molding can range from very simple to a multi-layer effect that makes a grand statement. This design feature can make your room look finished, add interesting detail and make your ceilings seem higher than they actually are. The type and design of the crown molding you choose depends on the room in which you plan to install it. While the addition of crown molding can change the feel of a space, it isn’t going to increase the value of your home, so be careful with how much you spend on the project. Adding crown molding is a fairly simple DIY project for a homeowner, but if you are already redesigning a space it is probably a good idea to have your contractor take care of this.
