Installing crown molding is a nice upgrade that can be done to just about any room. The problem is that it is more frustrating than you could ever imagine. I’ve installed crown in a handful of rooms now and the process has gotten easier and easier. I’ve picked up a few tips, tricks, and jigs that I think could make life easier for you if you plan to take on this task. I must preface this post by saying that I am not a master trim carpenter by any means and have no interest in taking on a complex trim job. This post will outline how to install crown in a simple room with flat ceilings. That is it.
