How to Transform a Room with Crown Molding
You don't have to move walls to create a new look for a room. Thankfully, you can dramatically alter a decor by working with much more manageable details: moldings and trim. Along with paint color and window treatments, moldings represent the simplest way to add style and definition to any room.
Home centers offer a variety of premilled molding materials. For the pure traditionalist, or if you plan to stain the trim, the solid wood trim available in many species is the best choice, albeit a more expensive one. If paint will cover your molding, consider finger-jointed wood, wood composite, or urethane trims to lower costs.
