Farmhouse design is all the rage right now, and for a good reason! It lends a cozy, rustic feeling to any room. And one of the simplest ways to add a touch of farmhouse style is with crown moulding. In this post, we’ll share 11 simple farmhouse crown moulding design ideas that are easy to achieve. So whether you’re a DIY novice or an experienced pro, you’re sure to find something you love! 

1. Beam Crown Moulding


If you’re looking for a simple yet stylish way to add character and charm to your exposed ceiling beams, then consider adding a beam crown moulding. The builders designed the white crown moulding to match and cap the white-painted ceiling beams, creating a cohesive and clean look in any room. Plus, installation is easy and only requires a few essential tools. So why not add a little farmhouse charm to your home today?

2. Duplicate Your Crown Moulding and White Trim the Contrasting Wall and Cove Ceiling


Cove ceilings allow you to replicate your crown molding work and white trim contrasting wall and cove ceiling. The ogee, or S-shaped, trimwork is repeated at each joint point to portray a time-honored look that is timeless. You can achieve cove ceiling design by using traditional and straightforward shapes like squares and rectangles to keep it from being too ornate. This type of cove ceiling also provides options for installing lighting fixtures at the center.

3. Matching Solid and Straightforward Crown Moulding


Crown molding is a beautiful way to highlight the difference between the colors of the walls and ceilings. This corridor in a Moroccan property takes a solid and straightforward style, with a dark gray ceiling and crown molding painted to match. 

Designers decorated the ceiling further to uplift the flat and plain space. They installed a hanging lighting fixture in colors of copper attached to an ornate decorative moulding depicting Moroccan art patterns at the center and symmetrical stepped linear frame moulding around the centerpiece. The whole effect is wonderfully unexpected: the top becomes a focal point, and the crown moulding a ceiling extension. The result is a truly unique space that will impress any guest. 

4. Kitchen Cabinet Capping Using Craftsman Cove Crown Moulding


The above photo is an early-twentieth-century design, a crown moulding featuring clean lines and simple forms that replaced Victorian extravagance with a more realistic style. Crown moulding around kitchen cabinets makes for a seamless transition that connects the cabinets to the ceiling, adding a classy finish to any kitchen. You may paint or stain the crown to enhance the beauty of high-quality wood, such as oak. A craftsman cove crown moulding is an elegant addition that will give your home’s interior character and warmth.

5. Add Texture With Victorian Crown Moulding


Nothing immensely adds the same level of luxury to a room as Victorian crown moulding. This moulding style is more intricate than your standard wood molding, often featuring raised relief details like dentils and acanthus leaves. It’s also available in polyurethane for those who prefer the look of painted wood over natural wood. 

Victorian crown moulding is perfect for monochromatic interior walls and ceilings, like the honey-gold room in the photo. Add this beautiful, ornate detail to your home and enjoy the instant upgrade in texture and visual interest.

6. Rustic Coffered Tray Ceiling


Add a rustic charm to your home with a coffered tray ceiling. This installation is perfect for giving your home a farmhouse vibe, and it’s easy to do. Install a beadboard at the center of a tray ceiling and add small crown molding at the corner of each coffer beam for a polished and seamless look. 

To seal the joint between the tray ceiling and walls, you can install a solid and straightforward crown moulding like in the photo. With this simple addition, you can give any room in your home an instant makeover with a rustic vibe.

7. Go Multidimensional With Stacked Trims


Go multidimensional by stacking different types of crown molding. Add more dimension to your recessed ceiling by installing thick trims on the wall and ceiling joint and duplicating the same trim around the edges of the inner recessed ceiling. It’s a cost-effective option for a big room or a location with high ceilings where you can quickly overlook medium-thick crown molding. 

This design idea is also an excellent way to add depth to flat walls. This type of crown molding offers you instant visual interest at a minimal cost.

8. Add Colonial Crown Molding for a Touch of Class


When you have a tray ceiling in your home, accenting it with colonial crown mouldings can add a touch of elegance. This installation uses octagonal mouldings to match the shape of the inner tray ceiling, and the result is a polished and sophisticated look. The vast blank space in the center becomes an eye-catching focal point when accented with these classic mouldings. It is the perfect way to highlight your modern lighting fixture.

9. Add Depth and Dimension w/ 3-Piece Crown Moulding


Extended crown molding is a way to add balance and visual interest to your walls and ceilings. Typically, three pieces of molding are installed next to each other on opposite walls or ceiling corners. This design creates an extended dimension that can add depth and drama to any room.

Ample crown molding is especially effective in larger rooms with high ceilings, where it can help anchor the space visually. If you’re looking for a way to add some extra flair to your home, extended crown molding is a great option.

10. Add S-Shaped Colonial Trim for a Sharp Look


Colonial crown moulding is a versatile and affordable way to add style to any room in your home. The white trim above is an s-shaped colonial crown moulding.

Whether you’re looking for a subtle way to add elegance to your décor or you want to make a bold statement, colonial crown moulding is the perfect solution. The trim provides a crisp, finished look that can be left unfinished for an understated look or painted for a more dramatic effect. You can achieve the polished look you’ve wanted without breaking the bank with colonial crown mouldings.

11. Customize With Wood Crown Mouldings


Enhance your walls by blending trim profiles for a one-of-a-kind buildup. Many individuals like wood crown moulding because it is more traditional. If it complements the rest of your décor, wood moulding may be quite beautiful. It can keep a room warm, but it is more costly. 

Combine numerous moulding profiles into one unique buildup to give detail to your wall and add an elegant touch and character to any room in the house!

Are you inspired to add some farmhouse crown moulding to your home? We hope so! Crown moulding can significantly impact any room – give it a try! The ideas we have shared here are just a starting point. Be creative and have fun with it. And if you need help, don’t hesitate to reach out for advice or hire a professional.
