Crown Moulding: Things to Consider
Looking for that final design feature to finish off your home reno project? TRIMROC™ Cornice or Crown Moulding is an architectural feature that adds character and value to your home without the high costs associated with this type of upgrade. It gives the space an upscale feeling and adds a visual presence to any room in the home. Before you dive in, it’s always a good idea to plan ahead. Here are a few of the things you should be considering when installing crown moulding.
When it comes to personalizing a space, details become key. They help to define the look you’re trying to achieve, so choosing a crown moulding design that matches the style of a room is important. The overall type of home might also be a factor when considering a design of crown moulding. For example, an older home may be suited to more traditional, ornate profiles, while a newer home might suit something more modern and contemporary. Whatever the design language is being used in the home, there is a profile available that will fit the look you’re trying to achieve. If not, a custom profile can be made to achieve the look you’re aiming for, making the possibilities truly endless.
Another factor that will go into the decision of crown moulding profile will be the ceiling height. Crown moulding comes in a variety of sizes from 4” to 12”. The goal is to pick a size that is the correct proportion to the height of the room. Choosing a small profile in a room with very high ceilings stands the risk of going unnoticed. Conversely, using a large profile in a room with a low ceiling will only make the room feel smaller and cramped. Having a wide selection of styles available and the ability to create custom designs makes finding the perfect size and design for your specific purposes easy.
Traditionally, crown moulding had to be installed by a highly skilled craftsmen who would assemble multiple parts of custom cut wood and it would often take days, sometimes weeks to complete a crown moulding installation. Today, advancements in manufacturing technology have allowed for the production of crown moulding in a variety of materials including plastic, plaster and even foam. TRIMROC™ crown moulding takes the best of these technologies to create a product that is not only lightweight and easy to install, but looks great and is so cost effective that crown moulding becomes accessible for even the tightest of home reno budgets and do-it-yourselfer. Installation is very easy and can often be done over a weekend by the home owner themselves.
