I am nonetheless engaged on the trim at our house health club whereas I await the walnut wooden to reach for the lavatory self-importance and storage cabinet (which ought to be right here tomorrow afternoon), and I hold going forwards and backwards about whether or not I need to set up a molding crown on this room.
I appear to be having a “sure” solely as a result of I’ve crown molding in virtually each different room/space of the home, together with the hallway. The exceptions are the kitchen (as a result of the very broad casing opening between the kitchen and the breakfast room is simply too excessive with trim and would not depart sufficient room for the crown molding above) the pantry (which has a slanted ceiling and no house above the window trim) and my studio (which has a vaulted ceiling).
Aside from these three rooms, the opposite rooms have crown molding. Of the rooms in our home which have customary, flat, 8-foot ceilings, the kitchen is the one one with out crown molding in the whole room, however I put in crown molding on the prime of the kitchen cupboards on the ceiling.
So in fact, I plan to put in crown molding within the house health club as nicely. The truth is, I purchased it some time in the past, once I purchased all of the trim scraps for the house health club and loo, and it was piled on the ground with all the opposite trim ready to be put in.
However I hesitate to put in crown molding on this room for one motive — WALLS! I am going to nice lengths to choose the right paint coloration (for me), think about the right order and association, after which truly paint all these strains.
After which, since I am me and I am unable to depart home windows with out fabric, I purchased some actually fairly linings for the home windows. Clearly, I’ll wait till all of the trim is finished earlier than I dangle them up, however I disassembled them they usually’re a considerable sheer type of cloth. So they’re skinny, however not too skinny.
So mix that with the truth that I at all times dangle my curtains excessive and broad, with the curtain rod bracket slightly below the crown molding, and what I get is a complete strip of coloration lined. I did a fast mock as much as present you what I am speaking about…
So I truthfully cannot determine if protecting the total coloration line will probably be a giant deal for me or not. If I forgo the crown molding on this room, and hold the curtain rods in the identical place (solely about 4 inches from the ceiling), then there’s at the very least some coloration above the curtain rods. So no coloration is absolutely skipped or lined up.
Once I painted this wall, I wasn’t too cautious to color the stripes completely the place they meet the ceiling. So anyway, it’s going to take a while to get the completed look. I’ve to return and contact the paint alongside the ceiling, or I’ve to place within the crown molding and do all that ending work. So leaving the crown molding won’t save time. Timing is not even an element right here.
The one issue is whether or not I would like the whole coloration stripe to be lined or not, which might be the case with crown molding, or if I need to let a couple of inches of coloration peek over the curtain rod, which suggests leaving the crown molding.
I do know this looks as if a small element, however it’s this small element that I attempt for. All these little particulars add up! So what do you assume? Add a crown and be okay with an entire strip of coloration lined across the three home windows? Or depart the crown off so all the colours can peek over the curtain rod? (Edit: I’ve thought-about all of the window protecting choices, and I opted for sheer curtains. These aren’t non-compulsory at this level. I am very proud of them.)
