If you're thinking of updating the look of your home you might want to take a page out of the past and add some crown moulding to your home. While the look of crown moulding is something that you will find in plenty of older homes it can be added to newer model homes as well.
One of the great things about crown moulding is its versatility in terms of where it can be used and installed in your piece of real estate property. The gracefulness that comes with crown moulding is used to finish the top edges of certain walls in rooms, cabinets and pilasters. It is also quite commonly used when creating exterior or interior cornice assembles, as well as window and door hoods.
Those used to be the most popular crown moulding applications in updated downtown condos but in more recent times new home builders and home owners with renovation project ideas have taken to use crown moulding as decoration when it comes to improving the appearance in the areas of the home where walls and ceilings meet.
Decorated wooden or plaster trim are installed in the above-mentioned area where walls and ceilings meets to give a graceful crown moulding finish. In a crown moulding renovation project like that you're using crown moulding as a way of decorating like you would when hanging a piece of framed artwork on the wall.
If you are intrigued with the idea of installing crown moulding in your home you don't have to worry about it being too difficult as it's actually quite the easy do-it-yourself home renovation project. The first thing you have to do is go to your nearest home improvement store and pick out the type of crown moulding you would like such as foam or plastic and then choose the style, shape, size and colour of crown moulding you think would be perfect for your house.
Once you've picked out your crown moulding you can start placing it along the seams of the wall where they meet the ceiling. The only difficulty you might have is the corners so you should have a miter saw on hand for whenever you have to cut the crown moulding into corner pieces. We recommend sizing the crown moulding and the cut corner pieces before doing the final install so you're not stuck installing the wrong pieces, which would then force you to start over.
