Plastic Crown Molding Is More Viable For Semi-Permanent Installation

Living in an apartment or townhouse usually means you can't do much renovation work to your place to give it a more robust or charming appeal. You can usually put up paper (wall paper essentially) borders on the crown of the ceiling to enhance the look and feel, but this can be pretty dialed down from the look you actually want.

Crown molding is a 3D version of the paper border concept and has a dramatically cool effect on a room.

You can only move your furniture around into so many configurations before you run out of ways to set your home up to make it feel fresh. Often people, after several years in a place, want a change and want to feel that feeling they felt when they first moved in.

If you're renting, this can be a hard thing to accomplish without spending a fortune updating your furniture (then you can move it around into more configurations before running out!). But there is a better way: crown molding.

Plastic crown molding is an easy to install and non invasive way to add crown molding to your home without costing you your deposit from damage done when you take it out, or when the owners take it out to rent it to someone else. They generally will take it out even if it works in the room because they like to have uniformity in their units and if someone broke the crown molding while living there, they would be responsible for fixing it.

Since plastic crown molding is actually quite light, it doesn't take all the nails and invasive holes to make it stay up there. In many cases you can actually use glue designed not to harm the walls when removed. Putting these up is as easy and effective as putting up wallpaper. In fact putting up wall paper is a thousand times harder than this!

Crown molding can bring a huge impact to your living space at a low overall cost and with the plastic crown molding available with great ways to install it without nails, it's a no brainer for home improvement no matter where you live.
