Crown molding is the most popular type of molding and can be used in more ways than you can imagine. The most known way to use crown molding is at the top of the wall where the wall and ceiling meet; however what you may not know is crown molding can also be used in a number of decorative ways you can install it atop kitchen cabinets or armoires to create added details, frame a fireplace creating an overmantel, add decorative shelves and so much more.  Crown molding is an amazing way to transform a room and is my personal favorite type of molding.

Chair Rail Molding

Chair rail, also known is a linear molding that is usually installed at 1/3 of the wall’s total height and creates a divide on the wall. Generally chair rail is installed on the wall at a height of 36″. Chair Rail serves a functional purpose as it keeps doorknobs and chairs and most furniture from bumping and scratching the wall.  In addition, people use chair rail for decorative purposes; chair rail can be used alone or in conjunction with wallpaper, wainscoting or paneling.
