Crown molding makes an elegant addition to any room. It is popular in commercial and residential applications, but curved spaces require special attention. If you have rooms with walls that bend in or bow outward or feature arched windows and doors, you’ll need curved molding that follows the curved outline.
At Compass Hardwoods, we’ll help you get the solutions you need with custom moldings built to your exact specifications. Our team will help you turn the walls you’re working on into eye-catching architectural features that add depth, increase visual appeal and boost property value.
The Difference Between Convex, Concave and Arched Moldings
There are three different types of curved molding — convex, concave and arched. Which style you require will depend on the space you want to enhance. All are available in the profiles we offer for your custom design. The differences lie in the application:
- Convex molding: Convex moldings fit outside corners. The face radius curves outward, with a design that resembles the outline of a circle.
- Concave molding: Concave moldings bow inward, with a shape made for inside corners. The face radius resembles the side of an hourglass.
- Arched molding: Arched moldings bow upward, pointing at the ceiling instead of inside or outside the room. They install onto flat walls and surfaces.
