 A Modern Take On Crown Moulding and Trim Ideas 

Modern interior design goes beyond sleek furniture, accent walls, chrome accents, and minimalism – modern design starts much earlier on in the design process from the incorporation of architectural details that bring modern interior design to life. 

While many people believe that moulding and trim can make a room feel classic and traditional, many people may not know that there are many ways to utilize these architectural elements to achieve a sleek, high-end look that makes a design feel modern. 

First of all, you may be wondering, what do modern crown moulding and trim look like? 

Modern trim and moulding are generally much less ornate than traditional moulding, which will bring clean and sleek defining features to your modern space that will make your space feel more inviting and finished. 

Now here is our modern take on crown moulding and trim ideas made to help inspire your next home improvement project for your modern home. 

Use flat crown moulding.

This will embrace clean lines and the simplicity of modern design.

Try layering moulding.

Layering moulding will effortlessly add architectural depth and interest that is both clean and simple. 

Think monochromatic.

Paint your wall and trim the same color to create a modern look. This will add elegant and edgy interest to a design that boasts contrast without stealing focus. 

Use a glossy finish.

A glossy finish is refreshing and unexpected, yet sleek and sophisticated enough to tie a modern design together. 

Create a statement wall.

A statement wall will bring elegant modern contrast to any room with the use of moulding to create architectural texture that makes a statement. 

Incorporate extra-large trim and moulding.

The sheer size of the larger trim and moulding will speak for itself. Instead of the impact being made through intricate detail, the statement is being created from the simplicity of a larger scale size. 

Using high-contrasting paint colors between the walls and moulding and trim.

This is a simple way to create crisp, clean, and defining lines that add eye-catching contrast. 

Paint the crown moulding the same color as the ceiling.

Instead of painting your walls a bold color, opt to paint your ceiling a bold color instead! Then add a subtle yet daring contrast that feels deep and modern by bringing the ceiling color down through your crown moulding.
