4 Reasons To Add Crown Molding To Your Home
It can do more than add visual character to the room!
Anyone who knows anything about real estate will tell you that crown molding instantly increases the appeal and value of a property. When done right, it gives the impression that a house is well-designed and properly constructed. It can also add visual interest to your decor and has the power to make even the simplest pieces of furniture look upscale.
If you still need a little convincing on why you should add crown molding to your home, here are a few reasons why you should take the plunge.
1. It can give dimension to paint.
If you're considering color blocking, but aren't too keen on painting panels two different shades—you can always turn to crown molding to add dimension to the room. Not only does it give extra character to the space, you can easily cover it up with the same hue you used for the walls if you want to change the look back to a more neutral aesthetic.
2. It can define a space.
For those who are working with spaces so small you've got no room left for dividers, crown molding can get the job done of separating areas. These jazzed-up plaster moldings (as seen in photo) give this combined study and living area a contemporary touch while keeping it classy.
3. It can add depth to a flat room.
Is your boudouir looking a little dull? Consider framing each panel of your wall with a dark-colored molding to give it a sophisticated spin. You can also hang a statement piece to draw more attention to the center of your bedroom.
