Crown Molding


Crown Molding Installation Carpentry NYC

It’s almost too cliché to say, but crown molding really does add a crowning touch to any room. From ornate columns in ancient days to European palaces, McMansions, castles, manor houses, brownstones, luxury condos and humble American craftsman dwellings, crown molding serves more purposes than just exhibiting wealth and opulence.

Brief Overview of Crown Molding

The ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks treasured these high up, fancy adornments, having them carved meticulously in stone. Chisels and a variety of small tools were used on different kinds of rock in a painstakingly long process at the building site. The creativity coming out of the Industrial Revolution (1760-1840) included large planing machines. Coupled with a robust source of wood and sawmill operations, molding could now be made in volume much faster and shipped elsewhere.

From a simple wood strip with one long horizontal wave in it to more elaborate pieces or multiple pieces installed snugly next to one another for a grand design statement, there is a crown molding at least for every living room, dining room, den and family room. It hides the seam where a ceiling meets the wall and can cover cracks and imperfections as well. It can also add decorative accents to doors and cabinets. Crown molding can be stained light, medium or dark, painted to match or painted to add an elegant contrast.

Choosing new crown molding is like shopping for hiking boots – that’s the fun part. Installing it (or breaking in those new boots on the Timp-Torne Trail in Bear Mountain State Park or a 5-mile stroll through Central Park) can be fraught with challenges. And blisters.
