Installing custom interior elements for your Pleasanton & Bay Area Homes
As a homeowner, you want to do everything you can to ensure that your home
looks its best. One option is to install or reinstall crown molding, which
typically adorns the area where the ceiling and wall meet. There are many
different kinds of crown molding available, and you should carefully examine
your interior before you make a final decision. If you're having trouble
settling on a type of crown molding, let the experts at Pacific Drywall
help you explore your options and install your crown molding for you.
We have over 20 years of experience helping Bay Area and Pleasanton homeowners
improve their home interiors.
All About Crown Molding
Crown molding is designed to adorn the tops of walls. In one form or another,
crown molding has been a part of interior architecture for thousands of
years. Molding is a great way to add an extra element of style to any
given room. Despite the way it may look, crown molding is not installed
flush against the wall—instead, the top part of the molding juts
out a bit, creating a hollow triangle with the wall. Molding must also
come together perfectly at the corners, making installation a very tricky affair.
Factors to Consider When Choosing Molding
If you decide that you want crown molding, you'll need to take several
matters into consideration. A molding professional from Pacific Drywall
can help you make the right choice by considering the following aspects
of your interior.
Ceiling Height: Ceiling height is key for determining the size of your molding. The higher
your ceiling, the thicker your molding should be.
Wall Type: Generally speaking, molding looks best when paired with drywall. Still,
you might ask a molding expert whether molding suits your home's walls.
Interior Trim: You must make sure that the trim in your home complements your molding.
This includes the trim around your windows, doorways, and fireplace.
Architectural Style: Molding tends to go best with homes that have a more traditional aesthetic.
If you're interested in adding crown molding to a more modern space,
consider consulting a molding expert.
Furniture: Again, molding is usually best paired with classic or traditional furniture.
Still, you may find a type of molding that works well with your current
