Crown molding is an excellent way to add a bit of finesse or that extra finishing touch to an otherwise plain and boring room. Adding crown molding to a room can create the illusion of higher ceilings.
In terms of when you should paint your crown molding, we always find it best to do when you are already painting the rest of the room at the same time to make sure both your walls and crown molding are kept up to date.
Working with Vertigo Painters means we’ll do it in the right sequence, which is important. Starting from the top, we’ll work our way down. We’ll start with putting the first coat of paint on the molding, followed by the ceiling, followed by another coat on the molding/trim, and then finally the walls. If there are any touchups to do later, it’s easier to do small touchups on the molding and trim compared to the walls.
