I have tried to install crown molding in our living room to no avail. The ceiling in the living room is a vaulted or cathedral ceiling rising from an 8 ft ceiling on one side to 13 ft on the opposite side. I have spent hours trying to figure out how to install crown molding, but I can’t figure out how to make the transition from the normal 8 ft wall to the ceiling incline. The inside corner has really confused me. I want to install some kind of molding to hide the seam from the ceiling to the wall. A previous owner has removed the popcorn ceilings and left the ceiling/wall seam a real mess and I can’t get a nice crisp paint line between the ceiling and the wall. Crown molding seams to be the way to go, but I have doubts that the installation of crown will look very good. I want to put some flat molding up instead. Has anyone installed flat (as opposed to crown) molding in a vaulted ceiling room? How is it done? Any suggestions and comments are welcome. What kind of molding would look good? Would floor base molding be an option or would that look really weird.
Thanks
Bob

Crown is always a good choice but it does pose its’ own set of challenges. If you decide to abandon the crown, you can hand trowel the ceiling to clean up the mess left behind by the previous finish. Apply a clean caulk bead to the joint between wall and ceiling (after the mud has dried). Then use a paint guide (and a steady hand) to cut in the new ceiling and walls. Do not use base or casing in place of crown. Very bad idea.

Bob: Easiest way to install crown molding is to not do it. NO seriously, at the corners install transition blocks. These are usually premade and available to purchase at local lumber stores or on-line. In your case, without seeing the transition angle I am not sure if these would work for you or not. But you can look at them at store or online and get an idea of what they do, then if need be create you own style corner blocks. The nice thing about using the corner blocks is that there should be no miters involved with the crown molding, just straight cuts. Hope this helps.

Bill, thanks for your suggestion. That is exactly what I have done. I made some 4” blocks to be secured in the corner and butt joined the adjoining molding. I haven’t completed the project yet but should sometime this weekend. I post some pics of my success.
I know crown molding can be wrapped around the corner adjoining the standard 8 foot wall with the inclined ceiling but I don’t like the look of these narrow awkward looking triangles.

I realize what problems you are going through and I too have a 7 page research paper due tomorrow for which I am trying to get some serious help for now. You should try to do nothing about it but to use a different approach.
