Crown Molding on an 8′ Ceiling

Another question we get frequently is if crown molding looks good on 8′ ceilings, or if it emphasizes the low ceiling height.  Good news – crown molding will look beautiful on 8′ ceilings, as long as you use smaller trim.  Nothing taller than about 6″, preferably 4″ will add luxury to the room.  Another factor might be room size – if your room is too small, then the molding may make the room feel crowded.  Our recommendation is to stay away from crown molding in a room with an 8′ ceiling that is about the size of a powder room, or smaller.

I agree.

Crown molding will look good on any ceiling as long as the molding you choose is in proportion with the ceiling height. Lower ceilings smaller = crown molding, higher ceilings = larger crown molding.
