Beginner’s Guide to Crown Molding and Pot Light Installation Crown molding can be challenging because walls are not always flat and nailing can be difficult. How can you achieve a beautiful crown molding? A large and elegant crown that is easier to install and less expensive than single-piece crown molding can be achieved with combined standard crown molding having two-pieces of base trim. In order to save you the trouble of needing to scarf pieces together, it is helpful measuring the length of each wall before purchasing the things you will need for your crown molding project. If you are planning to use a light-colored stain choose pieces of similar tone. We highly advised using brad nailer and miter saw for faster work. For a more elegant and larger look, crown molding can be combined with other trim, offering dozens of possibilities such as combining more pieces of contrasting woods for a two-tone effect. Using a one-piece crown, it can be messy because you might need ailing blocks or glue, so it is best to have a built-up crown to eliminate the frustrations associated with nailing, dealing with trouble spots easily as you install the rail trim, having a continuous and solid base to nail the crown. Most carpenters put lines and marks right on the ceilings and walls and hide them with paint. Instead of marking your walls and ceilings, an easier method is using an easy-release masking tape with at least 2 inches wide. You need to wait for a couple of weeks if you plan to paint the ceiling or walls before applying the tape. It is a good idea leaving the easy-release tape in place until you are done painting finishing the trim. For the actual job, add the piece right to the first piece and work around the room following the same direction to make the most of the 45-degree cuts with a miter saw. By doing so, your molding job becomes easier, and you can also use construction adhesive on the rail (even those areas where you can nail into ceiling joists and studs) for you to use just enough nails, holding the trim into its place until the adhesive sets, with fewer nail holes to fill. You have to miter the ceiling rails both outside and inside corners. When coping wall rails, it is like coping the crown but you need to stand the trim against the saw’s fence when you’re making the 45-degree miter, and install the outside corners the last to avoid coping both ends. It can be daunting and confusing having a DIY crown molding and pot installation project, so do not hesitate to contact a professional carpenter to help you.
