Add Character With Molding

From simple crown molding to elaborate wainscoting, molding completely transforms the look of a living room.

Crown Molding

The most popular molding is crown, which adds the finishing touch to any room. Designers Jaymes Richardson and Don Raney paired light walls with dark wood furnishings for this transitional living room.

Molding to Emphasize

Molding isn’t only for the ceiling. Highlight a feature, like this fireplace, with molding along the edge. Thicker pieces can also act as extra shelving or a mantel. Design by HGTV fan wroque.
