Then you shop. Price it all out – trips to Home Depot, Home Goods, At Home…all the homes! You find the right furniture, the right decor, the perfect lamp, and the best color scheme. You’ve got the perfect furniture and the perfect color scheme laid out. Your Pinterest boards are FULL of amazing ideas.

Finally you spend hours painting and putting it all together. You think it will look amazing!

But it Just Lacks…Something.

That something might be the finishing elegant touch of crown molding. WOW. But don’t you need a construction team to do that? And isn’t it expensive? And hauling wood up to the ceiling to attach…yikes, sounds like something I could never do.

But what if we told you it doesn’t have to be that way? In fact, crown molding isn’t always made out of wood. You HAVE to check out foam crown molding.

Foam crown molding is more affordable than wood crown molding

Four Main Differences in Crown Molding vs. Foam Crown Molding


Have you ever tried to build something and been a bit sticker shocked? Lumber can be expensive, and crown molding is no different. Traditional crown molding is wood, and in most instances, foam crown molding is about 28% cheaper.


As long as we’re talking about price, we can’t help but bring up the weight. You’d have a hard time hauling traditional crown molding up a ladder to install in your rooms with high ceilings! (Not to mention a bit of a safety challenge…) but foam crown molding is so light, you could carry it with one hand no problem.


No heavy equipment or expensive tools required. You can cut foam crown molding with a knife, unlike regular crown molding! No cumbersome saws or hiring a construction expert. That’s where the huge savings really is…even professional remodelers love the ease of installation for foam crown molding! NO nails are even needed! We tell you everything you need to know in our step-by-step installation guide.


Crown molding can warp or change when it is exposed to moisture or extreme heat. Wood expands in the heat, and can lead to gaps or shrinkage. And, if you’ve got an older home, you may have issues with shifting in your foundation. Foam crown molding is easy to install even if you’ve got an uneven spot or another problem you want to hide! It lasts — even if installed in a bathroom where moisture and heat are common elements.

Other bonuses when using foam crown molding? We’re a small business and can work to customize any piece of crown molding for you to fit your project.

I bought this company's basic crown molding a couple years ago. I had to prime it, paint it, cut it, and glue it. It wasn't too much of a challenge. I received nice compliments from people who normally aren't generous in praising. It has continued to look great even as my old house more

We have ordered crown moulding from this business for most of our home. First, the product is easy to work with and goes up nicely as long as you watch the instructional video recommend by the company. The corners come pre cut, which is awesome. Derrick was helpful with everything from suggestions for installation to making sure we ordered the proper amount. I loved that it hometown business feel with large company product.
