(pronounced krown MOL-ding)
Spelled crown “moulding” for those who speak with a British accent, crown molding is a classic interior element. Used for centuries to add ornamentation to elaborate millwork and grand rooms, hundreds of less expensive options now exist for the everyday consumer. Placed in the corner where a wall meets a ceiling, as well as the top of cabinets and pilasters, crown molding can be created out of wood (most common), as well as plaster (old school), plastic or foam (new school). Whether simple or extravagant, it’s a dependable way to tailor an interior.
