Crown moulding with a vaulted ceiling?


I think if you run the lower sides of the crown mould first and return them maybe 6-8" horizontally on the gable ends as if it were a regular installation, then you could allow the moulding on the sloped ends to die into the top of your returns. If you imagine an inverted upper case V-shape, you would see how that would work

Crown moulding with a vaulted ceiling?


Great information in these posts...

I have another situation that should be easier...maybe...but its whipping my backside.

I have normal walls on the sides of the room and vaulted on the ends. I am trying to put FLAT trim at the ceiling level..as opposed to crown. Any sites you have seen to help with this. It should be simple in getting the "transition" piece but I cant seem to get it to work out....

lots of sweat and frustration.....

Iíve seen crown molding flanking the arched center section of a three parts ceiling. If itís a barrel vaulted ceiling, I can tell you it looks classic.

Lloyd, do you have a picture of this? How curved was the vaulted part and what material did you use?

mrgins, that was an older post made back last year.

JSM1119, if you lay the trim flat against the wall and draw a line on the wall at the bottom edge of the trim past the line of intersection, then lay the trim flat on the other wall at the ceiling and draw a line under the bottom of the trim past the line of intersection, you will see how to cut the trim.

Lay a scrap piece at the area of transition and make a mark at the bottom where the two lines cross, then make another mark at the top of the mold were the two plains meet, cut from mark to mark and repeat for the other wall.

Man, I just confused myself on that one.

I hope I am explaining this where you can understand because I am just not good at explaining.

While this is an old thread it has some good information in it. I have installed many many vaulted ceiling moldings and they looked great. krazy johnni has it right, there must be a transition piece on ceiling mold installed in a vault. The only thing I see wrong with that picture is the molding in it is upside down from the way I installed it.

Thanks, I didn't see that. Anyone have any ideas on how to do that on a curved vault?
