Crown molding is literally the crowning achievement to making your kitchen, or any other room in your house, look trendy and modern. You can also get molding that makes your modern house look a bit more rustic and warm as well.
Whichever way you want your kitchen to look, you shouldn’t have a hard time in finding the molding to suit your needs and tastes. When it comes to installing molding, you can have a professional come out and get it done in a day, or you can do it yourself if you are the handy type.
There are different types of molding that you can use to spruce up any room, including your kitchen. The first thing you will have to do is determine what kind of molding you require to fit in with the room you’re adding it to. These types can be anything from Ogee to Dentil, and each one has a unique style, look, and overall feel when added to a room. Not only will you want to pick the style that fits your home and décor, but you should keep an eye on the price as some moldings are pretty high dollar.
Next, you get to determine what kind of material you want your molding made from. You can either have a composite mold or molding made from wood. While the price of each kind varies according to the amount of detail you want in your molding, wood is capable of being painted fairly easily, whereas composite molding is much easier to clean. You’ll also find that composite will hold up better in adverse climate conditions while wood has a tendency to swell and shrink in differing temperatures. It all depends on your personal likes and dislikes, though.
When you start to plan out how your molding is going to be installed, you should make a detailed plan of your room. You’ll need to measure each wall individually to make sure you have the right amount of molding. You should also plan on purchasing a couple of extra pieces, just in case. Sometimes things go wrong when cutting and having that extra piece will save you the headache from having to make another trip.
