Finish a room with crown molding
An inexpensive way to finish a room is to add crown molding. “Crown molding creates a finished and polished look,” Reiner says. “It’s often left out when builders or landlords cut corners and adding it back creates a subtle element of luxury and refinement.”
Just keep in mind that prices range widely – from $1 to $20 per foot – based on the material, size and style you choose.
Reiner suggests adding crown molding to the rooms your family and guests are in most, such as the living or family room, kitchen and main bathroom. The bedrooms, halls and secondary bathrooms can wait if you’re on a strict budget.
