“Crown molding” is a term you’ve probably heard being thrown around on HGTV or seen in property listing descriptions. But other than that, most people haven’t given it much thought. In fact, some people may not even really know what it means.
Crown molding is simply the trim around your ceilings. It sounds like a feature that doesn’t make that much of a difference to the overall space, but when it’s not there, you realize how important it truly is. Let’s take a look at the benefits crown molding has to offer your interior!
1) Covers Imperfections
The original purpose of trim in general was actually to hide the gaps in between where different building materials come together. Crown molding hides all of the cracks, irregularities, and blemishes that exist where the walls and ceilings meet. This creates a smoother, more finished look.
2) Adds Visual Interest
When people started using crown molding, they realized it does much more than just hide irregularities. It takes the look of a room to the next level with clean, crisp lines and added dimension. Spaces with crown molding are more elegant and interesting to look at. It’s a subtle way to frame the room and make it pop, especially in rooms with high ceilings and bold wall colors.
3) Boosts Property Value
Homes with crown molding have a more refined, upscale appearance—qualities that translate to more money on the market. The completed look that crown molding accomplishes gives the impression that your home has been well taken care of. When it comes time to sell, that goes a long way with potential buyers.
