Crown Molding

Crown Molding Contractor Tampa, St. Pete, Clearwater

Crown molding was originally established by the Greeks and Romans. The Greeks based their crown molding styles using the ellipse, parabola or hyperbola. The Romans altered the molding of the Greeks, basing their profiles on the circle. These two styles evolved into the styles of the present.

If you prefer this option be sure to use light airy wood stains instead of the darker ones to keep the room from looking too dark or gloomy.

No matter where you decide to place crown molding, it is sure to create a maximum impact and it is an excellent way to add value to your home without breaking the bank.
