There are many ways to achieve the best-looking crown moulding. You can have elaborate cornices for a built-up style using a good combination of multiple moulding pieces. However, you can easily mess up your room using the wrong mouldings. So to help you get the most out of our mouldings in Toronto without sacrificing on the final result, here are the two tried and proven rules when designing crown mouldings.


Rule #1: Golden Ratio Rule

The golden ratio has existed for centuries and has been applied to various architectural structures ever since. Applying this to crown mouldings in Toronto means a moulding on a wall should correspond to the cornice of a column. To get the ideal height of the moulding, the diameter of a wall should be back-calculated.


Rule #2: Find The Mouldings That Suit The Style

You might think mouldings are just profiles that you can add anywhere you want. However, there’s a lot that should go into choosing the right mouldings for your Toronto home building project. It’s important to discuss the specific style you’re trying to emulate within the home or building you’re working on.
