Installing a crown molding can be quite a challenge for the homeowners. Before even starting thinking of the design, you need to consider the material and there is a variety in that, and in addition, every material has its pros and cons. Plaster crown molding is usually custom made and comes at a high cost as it needs to be installed by professionals. It is a perfect material for unique designs and is most often used with plaster walls. Wood, just like plaster, is a very popular and traditional material for the warmth and beauty it adds to the interior. The profiles are offered in a wide range of wood species, including mahogany, oak, and pine and can be stained, veneered, or painted. Natural wood is, however, sensitive to temperature and humidity, which can cause it to expand, shrink, or crack. MDF is a composite material and moldings are offered in various profiles. It can be painted or have a wood veneer. MDF is a low-cost alternative to solid wood. Polyurethane is very durable and it is not susceptible to temperature or humidity alterations. It is cost effective but is only available painted.
