At the point where the wall meets the ceiling, crown molding is a beautiful decorative addition to any home renovation. How did we get from a flooring installation to a ceiling molding? Well, the addition of such an embellishment adds to the elegance of a room, ensuring a "streamline" effect, which draws the eye from flooring to ceiling. The great thing about crown molding is, this stunning finishing detail serves as a means to hide ceiling and wall discrepancies, and it does the job with a whole lotta flair!
Chair Rail Molding
Laminate floor installers may not suggest a classic chair rail molding, and that's because it's not a typical demand nowadays. Traditionally, this type of molding was a convenient means of protecting a dining room wall from, you guessed it, the backs of chairs. However, interior designers are now incorporating this embellishment into present-day designs, using it as an accent piece to divide sections of walls horizontally, or simply as a purely aesthetic element.
Here's a molding that sits directly atop your flooring, used as a transition piece to shift a room from floors to walls. As it comes in many different styles, you can choose a plain-and-simple look, or go all-out with an eye-catching trim. Not only does it serve as a design element, but it's also a means to cover any spaces between flooring and walls, and protects the walls from any dents or scratches.
