Crown molding meets angled wall
« on: July 21, 2020, 10:03 PM »
We did a room addition and the contractor offered two options for a run of crown that meets an angled wall.  See attached pictures.  I don't really like either option.  Is there a better way to end this run of crown?

What is the intersecting angle?

I’d terminate the with 2-22.5 or 3-30’s.

You can see what I mean in this thread. First post, not my work, I don’t have picture of the ones I’ve done.

I would end it with a return matching the angle doorway angle about a1/2” back.

Yes, what rick said, I'm not sure how there is any other option.

Only are ways are things like terminate into a block of some sort (corble?), something that disrupts the molding entirely.

Why not let it stick out completely, trim it flush with the wall and fill the opening so that it is completely straight with the other wall?

I agree with Rick, step it back a half inch and match the angle.

But of your two choices; neither of which I care for; if it had to be one or the other I would go with option 1 and be sorry for making that choice every time I looked at it.

Thanks for the suggestions! Very helpful.  I like the idea of matching the wall angle (it’s 45 degrees) but stepping back a half inch.

Interesting challenge you’ve got.
I’m with Alex, let the end of the moulding end flush and paint the end with the same paint as the wall it flushes against. It’s an opinion, but as I see it, it will start and end “endlessly” giving a “flow” as if the opening where clean cut.
“The Stig” Yes, it is true, at least some part of it..

 Most people love crown moulding, but fail to realize that there are many instances where it just l looks awful such as on angled ceilings, and where moulding is interupted by ac vents. There is a place for crown, but not every place is suitable.

Well, for me "remove the crown modeling" would have been my true answer, but I don't think that applies here  [smile].   But yes, like so many things on houses, you can only do things that work for the situation.  This is a situation where the space wasn't design for it.

The other answer to go on what I said earlier about disrupting it would be to frame the opening down, assuming there is a similar situation on the other end.  Then the crown can wrap that space, but not be seen from the other space.

I think Alex's answer is a solution too, but it might end up looking like someone did a cross section cut thru the house there.
