Simple DIY Tips for Installing Crown Moulding

Step 1. Choosing the Right Crown Moulding

Start by selecting the right style and size of crown moulding that complements the interior of your home. From traditional to contemporary, there are numerous styles to suit every taste.

Step 2. Measure Twice, Cut Once

Accurate measurements are crucial. Measure the length of each wall where you plan to install the moulding. Remember, it's always better to have a little extra than not enough.

Step 3. Cutting Corners

Cutting crown moulding requires precision, especially at the corners. You’ll be making a lot of miter cuts, so a reliable miter saw is essential. For inside corners, cope cuts will provide a cleaner, more professional appearance.

Step 4. Test Fit Everything

Before you apply any adhesive or nails, it’s important to test fit all pieces of your moulding. This ensures any adjustments are made before the final installation.

Once you’re satisfied with the fit, it’s time to secure the moulding in place. Use a nail gun for best results, and putty any holes for a seamless finish.

DIY TIP! Before installing crown moulding, experiment with different moulding profiles by purchasing a few sample pieces. Nail or glue samples together and hold them against the ceiling to decide which combination best complements your room's aesthetic.
