Never goes out of style? Trying to decide if I should install crown before painting the living room.

It depends on the style of your house. If your house is crazy modern, I would say no. If it's not, I would say yes. I would also suggest installing it after you paint the walls (couldn't tell if that was what you were planning). You can paint the molding first too then just touch up where you nail it in and sink the nails/putty.

Really, afterwards? I was thinking I could be sloppy painting the crown, tape it off afterwards when painting the wall. Plus, I would caulk the seams and want to paint over that, right?

My house isn't super modern, it was built around 2000.

Good lord that’s a lot of trim. That base must be a foot high.

I work in high end home construction and renovation and haven't installed crown in years.

You are right. You need to caulk and paint after installation unless you just want it to just look okay.

Paint trim separately on saw horses. Paint walls, you don't have to go 'll the way to ceiling. Install crown molding. Fill holes touch up with trim paint. Use white calling to fill the gap. Don't paint over caulking.

Looks like money

Yes. It’s in. Just did the rest of my house in white.
It really finishes a room.

You can’t miter crown. And shouldn’t miter any trim.

I can’t imagine cabinets without crown.

Interesting. List of the projects I work on you're either very modern with very sparse trim or more mountain rustic or whatever they call that stuff.

Do you finish painting your crown before you install it?

I would have I see it in place. To me it looks unbalanced on that low a ceiling. Also with that 1 inch cased opening it just looks weird.

Not a fan at all. I like the cove molding that almost disappears or maybe a more Art Deco style crown that’s really clean, but that scrolled molding with the dentils and all, hellzno.

Agreed, it looks better with (at least) 9-foot ceilings...

The house my wife and I just built is a design combination of mountain rustic and modern. Probably leans more modern in the interior because of the whites and grays, but my wife pulled off the mix well.

No crown molding. Minimal, clean trim lines.

We have high floor molding and crown molding at the top, but it's a 120 year-old house with 10 ft ceilings.

to be fair, mountain home and modern do not scream for crown molding. crown molding wouldn’t fit in those kinds of home designs.

but it’s essential for a variety of different styles of homes

Nice! I'd love high ceilings like that...I bet it looks great!

Of course it depends on the style of home, I live in a old historic type area so a lot of the new construction is modern classical. Lots of multi stage crown, big door heads, etc.
Never paint it beforehand, install, fill nail holes, caulk, paint cut wall color back in.

Agreed. I don't want a slightly different tint of caulk than the off-white crown showing, and the wavy line of caulk showing against the color of the wall.
