Similarly, does crown molding make a room look bigger or smaller? Size. Crown molding does not make a room look smaller -- in most instances. The molding can be wider if the ceiling is a little higher and can be up to 6 inches wide for a very high ceiling -- up to 12 feet. Crown molding any wider than this is only suitable for very large rooms or very tall ceilings, or both.
Thereof, what size crown molding should I use?
Ceiling crown moldings typically measure between 3 and 20 inches wide. Use your room height measurement to help determine the width of the crown molding. Install a crown molding between 3 and 5 3/4 inches wide in a room with ceilings measuring 8 feet.
What do you use for crown molding?
Wood crown molding is the industry standard, and you can choose from paint-grade pine or, if you prefer to stain the trim, a variety of hardwoods, including ash, oak, and walnut.
