Designing with Base Mouldings and Panel Mouldings

Using the helpful chart below, choose the largest crown for both the ceiling and cabinetry — your client will like what they see and how their properly proportioned room feels. Start with the ceiling crown

  • Using multiple pieces in a build-up serves as focal point for hoods and hearths
  • Always do a mock-up corner piece — assembled and finished — to help your client envision how a larger crown enhances the room

  • Crown detail serves the designer well — it can help correct an uneven soffit, and enhance doors, windows, and recessed ceilings
  • Start with ceiling crown first — follow with other crown applications which will always be smaller than ceiling crown
  • Push that envelope — "Don't be afraid to use larger, bolder crowns!"
