Create a very wide look by combining more than one type of moldingThis application uses a wide, flat band of patterned trim below the crown molding to extend the overall width. Even though the architecture is traditional, the look of the room is pretty contemporary, owing to the light fixtures and furnishings.Tip: One way to get the look of wide crown molding without the hefty price tag is to use a narrower crown molding and also buy another narrow trim. Put the crown molding up, and then put the narrow trim up so that the top of it is 2" below the bottom of the crown molding. Paint both moldings and the strip of bare wall between them the same color. It will look like it is all one very wide piece of crown molding.
