Getting Creative With Crown Molding

August 12, 2014

Entertainment Center Crown MoldingAlthough crown molding is often used to decorate the walls, cabinets and doorframes, getting creative with this luxurious touch can be a fantastic way to customize your home. Our Saratoga remodeling project, for example, used crown molding on their custom-built entertainment center. Where else can you use this decorative detail?

Crown Molding Creativity

Whether you are remodeling a room in your house or taking on a slightly bigger project, crown molding can really spruce up your home by adding a luxurious touch to your remodel quickly and easily. In addition to adding it to a custom entertainment center like our Saratoga remodeling project did, here are a few creative ways to use this fun design element:

  • Mix it up with fun colors. Pick a shade that’s different from the wall, but make sure it’s complementary so it fits with the overall design of the space.
  • Use it as a custom headboard or as a design element on the living room wall.
  • Double layer your crown molding to add drama and depth to the room.
  • Frame your windows with crown molding around the pane or as part of the sill. You can even add it to an arch around a window seat.
