If you’re thinking about selling your home in Aspen or the surrounding areas, you’re probably already thinking about ways to increase its appeal to potential buyers. After all, increased appeal translates to a faster sale (and a higher selling price).
If you’re like most home sellers, you already know the importance of a clean, uncluttered and properly staged home. You may also be looking for ways to update the look of your home and give it polished, cohesive lines. One of the simplest investments you could make to produce dramatic results: crown molding in all the right places.
Why Invest in Crown Molding?
Crown molding is one of those details you might not consciously notice. But make no mistake; it can transform a boring room into something that looks professionally designed. It’s an easy project for do-it-yourself enthusiasts or a simple matter for any home improvement contractor. Talk to your painter—he or she may be willing to include crown molding in your bid.
Crown Molding Can Cover Flaws or Change Dimensions
Depending on what you choose, you can make a room appear shorter, taller, fancier or more streamlined. For the most dramatic transformation, speak with a designer. Interior designers are expert at choosing the right optical effect to transform a room. Choosing a natural wood stain or painting your crown molding in a matching or contrasting color will result in vastly different looks.
Not All Crown Molding Is the Same
While classic wood in various profiles is what most people picture when they imagine crown molding, the variety of materials and looks available may surprise you. You might choose:
- Stamped metal
- Molded plaster
- Hollow PVC (great for hiding cables or power cords)
- Lighted crown molding
While old-fashioned wood molding may be the right choice to set off your home, one of the more contemporary options could be a better way to wow potential homebuyers.
