April 15, 2008

Installing crown moulding on your ceiling is a wonderful way to add a touch of class and texture to your walls.  Even at ceiling height, crown moulding is always noticed and appreciated, and can be the best way to make a room look truly finished.  There are so many types of crown mouldings that there is certainly one that will work with your particular room décor.  If you want something more traditional, you may want to go with a moulding that has a sharp slanted edge and a floral pattern.  If you are more modern in your decorating style, there are geometric styles that will work with your décor.  The best news of all is that you can use crown moulding with suspended ceiling and regular ceiling styles.
 
Crown Moulding with Suspended Ceiling

Crown moulding with suspended ceiling styles can be done with certain types of crown moulding.  Most people use crown moulding with suspended ceiling styles, and it is really a matter of finding a type of crown moulding that doesn't install directly into the ceiling.  Be sure that the type of crown moulding you choose is to be used as crown moulding with suspended ceiling.  If not, it may require direct attachment to the actual ceiling itself. 

To use crown moulding with suspended ceiling you will not need to have as much preparation as you would with other types of crown moulding.  Most of these types of crown moulding are made to be attached to the walls with screws.  They are manufactured so you so not have to cut the edges to create a seamless corner, and generally these types of crown mouldings come in both classic and contemporary styles.  Most manufacturers make their crown moulding in several types of wood if you want a natural look, or you can paint the moulding whatever color you want.  If you want to paint your crown moulding with suspended ceiling, you will want to choose the unfinished type of crown moulding and paint it before you install it.  You can choose to paint it afterwards, but you risk getting paint on the ceiling.
