One of the quickest and inexpensive ways to add style to a room is by adding crown molding. Crown molding goes between the wall and the ceiling, giving a room character. It has been said that a house without crown molding is like a picture without a frame. Crown molding comes in sizes to fit any room and it can be painted or stained. You can even get molding that will bend around a curved wall. You can use a single piece or build it up to make it bigger and add more detail. I find it easier to paint or stain it before the crown is installed so you do not have to mask the walls and ceiling. It takes an experienced carpenter to cut and install crown molding as it takes a compound angle cut and you are working over your head on a ladder.
