Triangular Window


Is it possible to cut crown molding along the long side of the attached window (crown goes to the ceiling), then miter another crown molding piece on the vertical side? Horizontal run would be a ledge. Much appreciated!

Not a great Idea to even attempt it.
If you have to have crown, end it in that bottom right hand 45 deg. corner.

Do you mean: only have the crown on the top, angle piece (hypotenous), and not on the other 2 corners (forming the right angle)? What other trim pieces, other than the casing, do you suggest?

Do not run any crown anywhere near that window.
Just along the wall to the right of the picture, or no crown. at all

One good method of installing crown above a window that is to close to the ceiling --retrim the window--use a flat header board on the top of the window---and casing on the other sides--then strep out the crown molding when it reaches the header board----

That treatment looks good on a standard window--I think it will look good on that triangle,too.

Trim is cheap---do an experiment and see if you like it.

on a window such as that i wouldnt consider it unless you plan on building up the trim.. via running some flat stock all the way along the wall to ceiling junction.. other wise your in for a real nightmare of a time trying to make those compound cuts at the window to return the crown into the wall
