5 Great Reasons to Use Wood Crown Mouldings11.03.17

If you’re looking for a feature for your upper walls, you really can’t go wrong with crown mouldings. Not only does it add a subtle touch of elegance to the upper portion of your home, it also helps to conceal unsightly cracks and unevenness. There are several types of crown moulding materials available for you to choose from, but the application of wood truly brings warmth and comfort into any room. Let’s take a look at the merits of using this hardy material in your home.

Adding Value to Your Home

Crown molding styles are a great way to add instant value to any home, and the use of wood is definitely a solid move. Using cheaper cuts or frames will seem like a reasonable option in the short run, but might cost you more as time passes. Certain materials are meant for temporary setups and were never meant to convey the same visual splendour as solid wood. If you’re running on a tighter budget, using MDF boards with a good quality wood varnish will also do the trick.

Providing a Visual Feast

Instead of agonising over furnishings and wall decorations, it might be time to turn your attention towards wooden crown mouldings. There’s just so much potential in solid wood fixtures that we can apply to the upper portion of our walls. Let it take centrestage in any room of your choice. Not only does it provide a unifying factor for your walls and ceiling, it is also more than qualified to become a key feature instead of a supporting element. Your choice of wood: from oak, maple, mahogany, pine, and many more, will substantially influence the feel of the space.

Bringing Character and Variety to Your Home

There’s an ongoing misconception that you should only use one type of crown moulding in your entire house. This is definitely as far from the truth as possible. You might love the looks of a particular crown moulding design, but it doesn’t mean that different rooms will not benefit from the application of different types and sizes of crown moulding. A simple cove crown moulding might do the trick in your kitchen, but you might want to apply a Greek Revival crown moulding in your living room instead for an ultra elegant feel.

Creating a Unique Atmosphere

Since crown mouldings has both a practical and decorative function, the choice of wood brings added warmth to an otherwise cold or neutral palette. If your house concept includes several instances of marble or metal, using wood helps to provide a subtle counterbalance. You can decide to either use a plain or more elaborately cut crown moulding, but there’s no denying that this decorative element can hold its own weight in any situation. The installation of polished wood crown moulding definitely creates a unique highlight in any room.

Keeping Old Traditions Alive

 IMG 5


If you’re looking to renovate an older house, you might want to retain a few of its original architectural features. The installation or replacement of solid wood crown mouldings is a popular choice. Because of its long-lasting quality and traditional feel, it is the perfect addition for transitional homes. If there is already existing woodwork in your home, it would be best if you could custom-mill the crown moulding to complement it instead of standing out. Try to avoid cheaper materials as this could look out of place among the rest of the house features.

Just remember to provide a proper veneer coating for your choice of wood crown moulding. Whatever your wood selection, it’s imperative that the crown moulding is protected from humidity and temperature changes. A warped piece of crown moulding will not only cost you in terms of locating a suitable replacement, it could also require a complete change of crown moulding if you’re unable to locate a suitable match. Whether you’re designing a traditional or contemporary style, the addition of wood crown mouldings is definitely something you should consider.
