If you are planning to sell your home or want to upgrade the look of a room, installing crown mouldings is one of the more cost effective and easier renovation projects you can do to any room in your home. Crown moulding is a decorative finish that is applied to cap the top of cabinets, columns, and the corners where the wall and ceiling meet. The moulding gets its name crown moulding because it caps the top of cabinets, pillars, columns, and walls.
There are many benefits to installing crown moulding in your home including:
- Cost effective
- Easy to install
- Improves the look of your home
- Increases the resale value
- Improves temperature regulation and insulating features
- Easily covers minor damage and unsightly blemishes
- Gives your ceiling and wall corners a finished, updated look
Depending on the size of the room, most crown moulding projects can be easily completed in a day.
What is Crown Moulding Made Of?
Most crown mouldings are made of wood. However, today crown mouldings can also be made of pressed fibreboard, plastic, and foam. Crown moulding comes in a variety of sizes, colours, and designs so you can find the perfect moulding to compliment your room’s style and personal taste.
Choosing the Right Size of Crown Moulding
Narrow crown mouldings should be applied to smaller rooms while bigger rooms can have wider crown mouldings installed. If you are installing crown mouldings in an average room with eight foot ceilings, mouldings with a three to six inch width is more suitable.
Cost of Installing Crown Moulding
On average, it costs between $465 to $1,100 to install crown moulding in an average size living room. Installing crown mouldings on kitchen cabinets will cost between $210 to $570 depending on the types of material used for the counters. Applying crown moulding to your entire home will cost anywhere from $2,000 to $5,000. If you hire a professional to complete the job, most contracted experts charge between $4 to $8 per linear square foot to install crown moulding.
