Crown Molding is a finishing detail to elevate your room and draws your eye up to make your ceiling to appear taller. Most modern homes do not have crown molding. My new home is a transitional style with soft touch of modern so I decided to have crown molding. Deciding on the size of crown molding depends how tall your room is. The style I chose compliments the size of our rooms and the wide baseboards at the bottom. This southern detail is charming and brings beauty and interest to the space.
