Molding has been used in people’s homes for many years. Back in the day, practicality was the sole purpose of molding, but nowadays, practicality is paired with beauty and elegance to enhance the look of any room that has molding in it. Enter crown molding, the elegant upgrade to standard molding. It has the power to make your home’s interior feel more refined and captivating. The only question is what material to use for the molding you install. Today, we’ll be looking at different crown molding materials to help you decide which material you should choose.
Wood is one of the more standard materials that’s used to create crown molding. It’s a classic choice that can give your home a more traditional look. A perk you get with this molding material is that performing repairs is much easier on these kinds of trims, as opposed to ones made from different materials.
PVC molding can be another viable option if wood is not your material of interest. While it isn’t the most environmentally-friendly option, it does have the upside of having great longevity. This means you won’t have to replace your crown molding for a long time.
It’s also a great choice if your molding gets a lot of sunlight exposure. PVC can maintain its appearance, even through intense sunlight. This helps it keep its beautiful appearance for much longer.
You could also consider going the route of metal crown molding. It’s one of the more durable molding materials you can select, and it has great longevity, just like PVC molding. What makes metal molding stand out, however, is the unique modern aesthetic it provides. Metal has a sleek look that can promote elegance, making it great for any room you want to make look more regal.
Metal is also a good molding material choice because of its fire resistance. If you think your molding will be in an area with more fire risks, this could be a wise choice of material for your crown molding.
