Crown Molding is a classic and refined choice for your home.  We loved working with Metrie on the latest One Room Challenge we participated in.

Here are some of our tips for incorporating molding in to your own home!

1 // Know Your Aesthetic

Typically when we think of crown molding we think traditional, traditional, traditional. This crown molding is a modern spin on the traditional style we are used to seeing. There are a lot more modern and simple options out there when it comes to trimming out the top of your walls.

2 // Have Fun with Color

This is such a genius way to trim and paint your wall. The traditional molding is so pretty with the window trim and baseboard. You can leave your molding white or amp up your space by painting it a different color than your walls.

3 // Another fun idea for the use of crown molding is to use it in unexpected places like a bathroom.  While you are going for unexpected you might as well paint it a fun color too! We love how the black molding stands out in this space. Crown molding can really elevate an ordinary space

Don’t be afraid to mix in crown molding with shiplap, wallpaper or other types of trim. It really does go with anything!

Whatever your style you can incorporate crown molding and elevate your home to another level!
