Does Decorative Moulding Add Value To A Home?

July 21, 2022


Moulding is a decorative architectural element installed to cover the area where the wall meets the ceiling. Crown moulding can increase the visuality and value of your home tremendously. However, many homeowners looking for easy projects to increase their home’s value tend to overlook the option of adding crown decorative moulding to their home.

By simply adding molding you can increase the overall look of a room. Crown moulding makes the paint of the room pop up and sometimes makes the room appear larger. These are especially desirable in older homes where the ceilings’ corners have cracked up over time. An experienced roofing contractor can provide you with quality mouldings that can serve as the best cover for all.

The following blog is an attempt to evaluate the power of adding crown mouldings in increasing the value of your home.

Where To Add Crown Mouldings

You can add crown mouldings to any room of your home. However, if you have a limited budget and want to add them to only a few selected rooms then we advise you add them to the areas that can use an extra layer of detail. It is best to focus on the

  • Master bedroom
  • Kitchen
  • Living area
  • Dining room

Adding mouldings to your home in only a few rooms is sufficient to improve the value of your home. It is the minor details that buyers will notice when buying a house. Crown mouldings are one of the minor details that your buyers will be looking for.

How Does It Improve Your ROI?

The results concluded by Metrie after surveying real estate professionals showed that 97% of respondents agreed that mouldings and trims impacted the overall price of the property. While a whopping 90% of the professionals said that they are likely to recommend an update to the trim or mouldings before putting a house up for sale. 62% of the respondents termed the trims and mouldings as the most important component determining the visual appeal of the house.

The key to getting the highest possible return on investment for your moulding or trim project is to choose one that matches your homes’ design. For instance, in modern houses, buyers will like to see mouldings with simpler edge cuts. While in Victorian-style homes one would like to see more ornate edges suited to the period.

Should You DIY Or Hire A Contractor?

Unless you have the right skills, tools, and experience to cut and install trims, the installation of a molding is best left to a professional even though the tasks may initially seem very easy the demand for precisely mitred joints around the doors, windows, and the corner of the roads makes it something only a professional can take care of.

If you get your finely cut mouldings or their trims from an experienced builder and contractor, you will still need to get them finely scratched and adjusted to the corners when installing them.

Therefore, it is always better to call a roofing contractor to get your mouldings and trims finely installed. Badly installed trims and mouldings can make the home look bad and untidy instead of adding to its visual appeal.

In conclusion, mouldings are the easiest way to enhance the visual appeal and value of your home. It is the easiest way to add class to your home without carrying out any major renovation projects. Hence, you can increase the value of your home and get the best rate of return on your easy investment by adding crown moldings to your home.
