Three Rooms That Are Perfect For Crown Moulding

Working with a custom home builder is about more than just deciding what square footage of home you want and how the floor plan will be. You'll also need to think about a long list of smaller details that the builder will then execute to give you the home of your dreams. It's likely that your builder will ask you if you want crown molding along the edges of the ceiling in any room and, if so, which rooms will suit you. Of course, you could choose crown molding for every room if you'd like, but with the goal of making this addition stand out — and saving you a bit of money — it can be worthwhile choosing just a few rooms for crown molding. Here are some options:

Dining Room

The dining room is a perfect spot for crown molding, given that crown molding adds a fancy appearance to the space, and the dining room is often one of the most formal rooms in your home. If you're the type of person who envisions large family gatherings in this space for years or even decades to come, having your custom builder install crown molding during construction will give your dining room the formal look that you desire right away.

Living Room

For some families, the living room is an informal space to gather, watch TV, and even enjoy some meals. For other families, it's an upscale part of the home for entertaining. If you're among the second group and you want to come up with some design ideas that will help to make your living room stand out from the other spaces in your home, crown molding can be a perfect addition. You can work with your builder to choose crown molding that accentuates how you wish to decorate this central room upon moving in.

Master Bedroom

The master bedroom of any home is another space that often has fancy elements, and is thus conducive to adding crown molding. Crown molding can look a little out of place in your children's bedrooms because of how they choose to decorate their walls, but it can be a perfect complement for the stylish and upscale look you're trying to achieve in your master bedroom. If you have a large walk-in closet off the master bedroom, you may even walk to talk to your custom builder about installing crown molding in this space, too.
