With today's technology there are a hundred ways to do anything and a handful of them are efficient and even fun to carry out. One of them is foam crown molding installation.

Crown molding is a 3D version of the old border paper many people put up to enhance the feel of the room and borders. Foam crown molding is a very light weight molding that can be made to look like virtually any material but maintain a light weight construction so you can install it high on the walls as a new seam (cosmetic) between the wall and ceiling.

If done right this can bring a dramatic new appeal to the living space and even make a room you were previously not impressed by or thought nothing could be done to it, look like a throne room of a king's den!

Foam crown molding makes a great choice because it's not only light, meaning you don't have to nail it down, but rather can glue it in with quick drying glue. The beauty of this is you're not drilling any holes or hammering any nails into the wall, so if you put it on crooked, you don't have to cause further damage to the walls to fix it - you just remove it with a putty knife and sand down the areas (remove the dry glue), and re-install it.

With the latest in crown molding technologies, you can get crown molding in much the same capacity you can get house siding. There are a large variety of materials it's made from but many of the foam crown molding can be made of foam and have a thin layer of real materials layered over the foam to give the surface impression of a much more heavy, robust crown molding material. You can get metal dipped, even gold leaf dipped crown molding and about a thousand or more other varieties.
