How to Cut Crown Molding for Inside Corners, Blasdell, New York

Crown molding can be the perfect addition to any home: its sleek design can add to your property's aesthetic, as well as increase your home's resale value. If installing crown molding is part of your spring home improvement plans, there's no better place to buy it than Bargain Outlet, in East Hartford, CT. A common problem many run into while installing crown molding, whether wood or polyurethane, is navigating tricky corners.

Here are a few tips on how to cut crown molding for inside corners:

  • Measure Proper Angle: This is the most important part of the installation process; if you measure incorrectly, you can waste a perfectly good piece of crown molding. When measuring the corner for your crown molding, use an adjustable protractor, and measure the inside corner from each side, of where you want the piece to go. Both pieces will need to fit together in the corner, so make sure you're measuring accurately.
  • crown moldingCutting: Since you want both pieces of crown molding to fit snugly in the corner, cutting them at the proper angle is essential. The most accurate way to do this is by using a miter saw, or miter box, where you can firmly set the measurement of the angles you need. Then, cut the proper angle from the crown molding to each side of the corner you measured.
  • Sanding: To make sure your measurements were correct and the pieces of crown molding you cut for the corner fit properly in place, Bargain Outlet recommends putting them into the corner side by side. If they match up, sand them down, so each side is smooth before nailing them into place. If they don't match up, all isn’t lost; you may simply need to shave down the sides with a coping saw.

If you're thinking about installing crown molding in your home, contact Bargain Outlet today by visiting their helpful store locator online. You can also learn more about their extensive inventory of flooring products, high-quality doors and windows, and more.
