Crown molding encapsulates a large family of moldings which are designed to gracefully flare out to a finished top edge. Crown molding is generally used for capping walls, pilasters, and cabinets, and is used extensively in the creation of interior and exterior cornice assemblies and door and window hoods.
One of the easiest ways to truly spruce up the house cabinets is to add crown molding (or trim) to them. Crown molding is a high density PU that can be applied to ceilings, cabinets, and more. It will create a more luxurious look in any room. Doing this in the house decoration can make a HUGE difference and can be done for under $100 dollars.

What Can Crown Molding Do
The crown molding carries a great tradition of grandeur and beauty. Aside from the scroll-like story telling abilities that the crown molding possesses, there is a great deal of decorative aspects that the molding possesses.
The crown molding is a great choice for you if you are looking to add a different dimension to the architecture of your space as well as adding some playful shadows that are instantly created when molding appears. The Streamline Modern crown molding that is used so widely today has been present since before the common era – crown molding was simply perfected by the time that was spent reflecting on the particular style; it should calm the nerves of many people who are afraid to choose something that is far too “new”.
How to add crown molding
Cut the molding structure (holder) pieces at the same exact angle as the crown molding (aka: molding). Usually the angle will be around 35 degrees. You can also notch them so the bottom of the angle will sit completely flush with the front of the kitchen cabinets.
Then apply the glue to the cabinets, molding structure pieces, and to the crown molding.
Next, nail the molding structure pieces into place on the cabinets. Then, measure and cut the crown molding to exact size. (At this point you can paint the crown molding or just wait until it is installed to paint it.)
Then nail the crown molding into place. Clean up any glue residue that may be present. Paint the molding if needed then you can caulk the edges and joints to fill in any gaps. FINISHED!
Moldings have been around for many centuries as a means of decorating. Many of the classical patterns could be found in the old mansions such as Versailles. Back than all of the molding s were hand made and freshly put onto the ceiling and walls– now you have the luxury of having the wide array of the same classical patterns, but with a lot less of a circus in getting it on your walls– and instead of hiring anyone else to do that for you– you can easily do it yourself.
