    Are Crown Moldings Still A Thing?

    The answer is YES! As a woman knows that having a classic black dress will always be a thing, it is the same with crown molding. It is believed that crown moldings are one of the architectural classics, especially in your kitchen which can really add value to your home. Crown moldings have the power to make your home feel more upscale. They give that wow effect to guests upon entering. But, what is it about it that makes them so versatile?

    The History Behind It

    The interesting history behind this versatile trend is that it originates from ancient Egypt. The Ancient Egyptians had two favorite styles; the “cavetto” and the “torus”. Cavetto molding was more of a grand cornice used on the outside of the building. Torus molding was used to decorate columns. Their molding was carved from stone, which was some really hard work!

    One more interesting thing is that the crown molding designated wealth and prosperity. The larger and more ornate the design, the wealthier the owners most likely were.

    Today’s Truth

    Today, as we said, crown molding adds to a home’s value. Over the past few years, homeowners and designers have been demanding big, beautifully carved crown molding.

    Today, the trend is changing. The more popular trend is for subtle crown molding.

    Crown Your Kitchen

    If your kitchen cabinets don’t have crown molding, don’t give this upgrade a second thought. It will instantly elevate the look of your kitchen. If your kitchen has taller ceilings, consider adding more detailed crown molding. If your kitchen has lower ceilings, choose a sleeker look.

    Be careful so that the room doesn’t feel small or dominated by adding this feature. If you have white or grey shaker cabinets, Nelson’s crown molding for cabinets is available in a width of 96″ and is a breeze to install.
