Crown molding can be a fantastic addition to any room in your home. It promotes aesthetic appeal, and can raise the overall value that your home offers. With that said, there are myths that have popped up regarding this feature, and these myths can deter some people from investing in it. We want to clear up any confusion revolving around these myths so that you can make a more informed decision when choosing whether or not to install molding in your home. Today, we’ll be taking a look at a few different crown molding myths.
“Crown Molding Can’t Be Used When You Have Low Ceilings”
Some people may believe that molding can’t work if you have a low ceiling, but this isn’t the case. Not only is this statement not true, but low ceilings can actually provide the perfect setup for molding because you can create optical illusions that help your ceiling seem taller than it really is. This makes rooms with lower ceilings appear to be larger than they truly are, and you can even raise the room’s elegance in the process.
“You Shouldn’t Use Molding in Rooms Where Children Hang Out”
Some people believe that you shouldn’t use crown molding in any room where children will be, such as playrooms or their bedrooms. The reasoning behind this statement is that molding isn’t durable enough for the rowdy types of play that kids could perform around the house.
We’re here to let you know that molding is actually quite durable, meaning it’s perfectly fine for any room where children will hang out. Consider consulting a molding installation company for advice regarding what material would be best for constructing your molding.
“Your Molding Should Always Be White-Colored”
While many molding options are white in color, that doesn’t mean white is the only option you have. Perhaps the color schemes around your house would make white crown molding look unappealing. It’s important for the color of molding you choose to be suitable for the aesthetic your home offers.
