Crown & Cornice Molding

Planning Your Space

  • When installing a cornice or crown molding it is important to establish a plan for the layout.
  • Start by measuring your room to determine linear footage of molding needed. Add 10% of total length for miter waste.
  • Divide total linear feet by molding lengths to determine total molding pieces. For example: If molding comes in 8-foot lengths, divide total linear feet by 8 to determine how many pieces of molding are needed.
  • Round up the number of pieces needed to determine total number of molding lengths you will need to purchase.
  • Consider adding additional length to your purchase to “match the pattern” of molding, ensuring a consistent appearance. For molding with repeats greater than 6” consider adding an additional 5% to total length. Before Installation

Before Installation

  • You can finish [paint or faux finish] molding before or after installation.
  • After installation touch-up any area as needed.
  • Place molding in room for 48 to 72 hours before installation to allow molding to adjust to temperature and humidity levels of room.
  • ALWAYS store molding in a dry well-ventilated, low-humidity area. NEVER store molding outdoors.

Surface Preparation

  • Clean all surfaces free of dirt and loose particles with a clean cloth or sponge. Make sure area is completely dry before installing.

Chair Rail & Frieze Molding

Planning Your Space

  • When creating chair rails or friezes it is important to establish a plan for the layout.
  • Chair rails are typically installed 1/3 up from the floor [32” to 36”]. Frieze molding is typically installed just below cornice molding or a few inches below ceiling like a border, which can help reduce the scale of high ceiling rooms.
  • Start by measuring your room to determine linear footage of molding needed. Add 10% of total length for miter waste.
  • Divide total linear feet by molding lengths to determine total molding pieces. For example: If molding comes in 8-foot lengths, divide total linear feet by 8 to determine how many pieces of molding are needed.
  • Round up the number of pieces needed to determine total number of molding lengths you will need to purchase.
  • Consider adding additional length to your purchase to “match the pattern” of molding, ensuring a consistent appearance. For molding with repeats greater than 6” consider adding an additional 5% to total length.
