Crown Molding Installation Process

A simple way to incorporate depth and character into your walls is to install crown moulding. You can update the look of any room in your home with crown moulding, and it’s also an affordable option. These are all the steps we take to install crown moulding.

Plan the Installation 

Our team begins with careful planning before we start installing the crown moulding. First, we determine which crown moulding is the best to use in the space. There are many decorative styles available on the market that we can install. Begin planning on the wall that’s opposite of the door. This is the main view of your crown moulding and it should look the best. Then, plan your crown moulding around the rest of the room. The juncture where Wall 1 and Wall 2 will meet should be coped or cut to shape. We follow the same process for the third wall, and the fourth wall is coped at both ends.

Measure the Room and Mark Studs

We will measure the wall from one corner to the next, and draw a faint line to indicate where the bottom of the crown moulding will sit. This ensures that the moulding will be straight. 

Then, we use a stud finder to locate the studs and make faint markings on the wall to guide us as we begin inserting the nails.

Measure and Mark Moulding

The moulding is placed against a framing square, and we jot down the distance between the corner and the face of the moulding edge. A piece of lumber is then cut according to the right dimension, and we draw layout lines on the wall and ceiling. 

Then, we place the moulding against the wall which is located opposite to the door. We keep the moulding in place and mark the locations of the studs. The stud marks are then transferred onto the moulding.

Set Up the Miter Saw

The miter saw is programmed to cut at 45 degrees in the direction of the angle that is required. We make sure that the ceiling edge is flat on the bottom of the miter box, and the wall edge is tight against the fence.

Cut Crown Moulding

We cut the crown moulding according to the space, but this generally includes inside corner cuts, outside corner cuts and scarf joint cuts. 

The moulding is cut depending on the joint that will work the best. Mitered joints meet at the corners and create a perfect 90 degree angle. While coped joints are ideal for a corner that isn’t squaringup or is not sitting at a 90 degree angle.

Test and Trim to Fit

We want to ensure that the cuts are snug when placed together. We pay close attention to each piece of moulding as they are cut. Any excess wood is cut with a coping saw. 

The coping saw is set at a 45 degree angle so it creates a razor-thin edge for the two mouldings to meet. If any of the pieces are not fitting perfectly, we make sure to trim the joint until it fits. High spots are also sanded and filed down to make a tight fit.

Installing Crown Moulding

It’s important to measure the wall one more time before you begin installing the crown moulding. Then, we cut the moulding ⅛ inch longer than when it was measured – the purpose of this is to help push the cope joint closed when the moulding is installed. A square cut is made on the uncoped end of the moulding, and then we put the moulding in place. The moulding is then nailed or glued to the wall and ceiling.

Crown Molding Installation Cost

Crown moulding is an excellent choice if you want to add a touch of elegance to a room. You can choose to install it yourself, but there are many benefits to having a professional install it. However, there are several costs to consider if you want a professional to install the crown moulding.  The cost of crown moulding is determined by several factors, including the type of material used, the size of the room, and the complexity of the installation. Crown moulding is typically made from wood, although synthetic materials are also available.

The most common type of crown moulding is made from mitered boards that are attached to the ceiling and wall using finishing nails or adhesive. The cost of crown moulding ranges from $4 to $8 per linear square foot, making it one of the more expensive home improvement projects. However, the average homeowner can expect to spend between $2,000 and $5,000 on crown moulding for their entire home. If you’re interested in installing crown moulding on your kitchen cabinets, you can expect to pay anywhere from $210 to $570 – this all depends on what types of materials are chosen for the kitchen counters.

What is Crown Moulding Made Of?

Crown moulding can be made from many different materials. This includes wood, medium-density fiberboard (MDF), polystyrene moulding, PVC and polyurethane moulding, and plaster crown moulding.

These are the different types of crown moulding: 

Wooden Crown Moulding – this type of moulding has many options to choose from and is the most popular form of crown moulding. Some options include paint-grade pine or hardwood material in ash, walnut or oakwood.

Medium-Density Fiberboard (MDF) – this is a lightweight crown moulding option that is also easy to install. It’s made of sawdust and resin and is the ideal option if you want to paint the moulding. 

Polystyrene Moulding – an affordable crown moulding option that also happens to be the perfect choice for rental rooms. This may require two or more coats of paint to achieve an even finish.

PVC and Polyurethane Moulding – this option is lightweight and easy to install. It has a long-lasting sheen and does well in areas with high humidity like the bathroom, gym, or steam room.

Plaster Crown Moulding – this is a classic type of crown moulding and is the ideal choice for your forever home.

Crown moulding comes in a variety of sizes, colours, and designs, so you can find the perfect moulding to compliment your room’s style and personal taste. When selecting crown moulding, it is important to consider the scale of the room and the existing decor. For a small room, select a simple design in a light colour to avoid overpowering the space. For a larger room, choose a more detailed design in a bolder colour to make a statement. Crown moulding can be used to accentuate existing features or to create new ones. It is an easy way to transform a plain room into a beautiful and inviting space.


How much do you charge for crown molding installation?

Our crown molding installation charge starts from $8 per linear feet.

Will there be a lot of mess during the crown molding installation process?

We do not use glue during the crown molding installation process thereby eliminating the potential for a large mess. Nevertheless, we lay down newspaper and towels to avoid dirtying your floors and walls and utilize tape for precise insertion. We promise to clean up everything once the installation process is complete.

Will the painting be needed after the crown molding installation is completed?

You have the option to paint once the crown molding installation is complete.

Do you nail crown molding into the ceiling while installing?

We use nails to install the crown molding into the ceiling.

Should I paint the crown molding before installing it?

For the best finish, crown molding should be painted after installation, not before. Though it is easier to prime and paint before installing, you still have to caulk the molding to the drywall and patch all of the nail holes. This means touch-ups in the middle of semi-gloss paint and doing so leaves blemishes in the finish.
