Crown Molding Installation in 5 Easy Steps

Crowning is the next step in upgrading your room's appearance. It is a decorative design that enhances your architectural details in your home. If they are installed correctly, it will improve the interior of your home and possibly increase the value of your house and give you the finished look. Corner moldings were also made of many different materials. They also come in a large number of sizes ranging from 1 1/2 to 15 inches and come in hundreds of different styles and shapes and are made of everything from PVC or foam to oak wood.

If you are considering hiding poor plaster walls for roof joints that cover this with this type of casting would be a good option.

Installing crown molding is quite easy. Basically put in a nutshell, if you install crown molding in a regular room with four walls, you just have to make four special cuts.

You install straight-cut crown shapes on opposite walls without angles at both ends just a straight plane cut. Place the crown shape flat against the wall and push up close to the ceiling. In the most basic situations, you can nail the crown shape to the wall and ceiling.

Now the other two walls are where it becomes a little more complicated. With a miterbox or a wooden hook, you saw a 45 degree angle on this casting. The molding should be placed in your miterbox in the same way as it sits on the ceiling and wall but up and down and back.

Once you have cut the angle in its perspective of right position that you expect to see them on the wall, the next step would use a saw to relate the excess material from both ends to the contour and shape of the crown shape. You have to cut away enough material to allow you to fit crown molding neatly against the other part that does not show any gaps or exposed wood. Making the joints is the only difficult part. You have to be very careful because of the shape of the contour or contour. Sometimes you can fine-tune the fit with a file.
