Crown Molding Design Elements
Crown molding combines several design elements to create a unique look and feel that complements your décor and creates your desired overall look. Popular design elements include acanthus leaves, angular profiles, beads, concave curves, ovolo curves, S curves, dentile, egg-and-dart, garlands featuring flowers, leaves or vines, geometric patterns, Greek key design, lamb’s tongue, ripples, rope, and stair steps.
Additional plaster elements may further enhance your decor. A ceiling medallion is a perfect complement for a light fixture or hanging element, and add ceiling medallions for visual interest on an otherwise bare ceiling. Transform your fireplace or range hood with Venetian plaster. Embellish doorways, nooks, and walls with simple or ornate ornamental plaster.
