When it comes to crown molding, there are all types of different styles and materials available to you. The first one I want to talk about is wood. Now, wood is a beautiful option when it comes to crown molding. It comes in a myriad of different wood varieties, grain patterns, profiles, and obviously designs. There is a little bit less margin for error when it comes to using wood. So unless you’re going to stain it or you have a really good sense of how to install the crown, you may want to consider this option.
Now, this is MDF. It’s a composite material made of sawdust and resins. Now, the good news about MDF is that if it’s a paint-grade option that you’re after, this stuff is great because it’s way less expensive than the real wood option. It comes in a myriad of shapes and sizes and profiles, just like the real wood does, but at a fraction of the cost.
Now, this third option is made out of rubber. If you have a round room, this really is your only option. And it’s a great one at that. It is a little bit pricey, so obviously you would only use that for that particular application.
This fourth choice is actually a green material. It’s a polystyrene and it’s made from 90 percent post-consumer recyclable products such as water bottles or anything that you might throw in a recycle bin. They actually can create some of this beautiful crown molding out of it. It’s great for a wet area, for example, because it is plastic. But it is a little bit on the pricey side. It doesn’t have a whole lot of option in terms of profiles, so it is basically specific to the application that you desire.
As you can see, there’s a tremendous amount of varieties when it comes to crown molding – all shapes, sizes, materials, costs. It’s all up to you. Go out there and pick yourself a winner.
