Cove molding is a style of molding that can be used in many places. One of them is at the wall ceiling interface. Cove moldings are used where walls and ceiling meet. They have a concave form, and for this matter, they are often used as inside corner guards, or to hide joints. It forms are measured by the width, and then by the length of the profile. It can also be used as a transition to a shelf or a mantle, or even in conjunction with other moldings for a "compound" molding. Depends on where you install the cove molding, not all crown molding is cove molding. But if you hung it at the top of a wall, then, it would be considered a crown molding.
Like we’ve already disscused above, cove molding is a piece of concave trim that is finished on all sides. Normally, One of the sides is shaped to give a profile to decoratively add to the architecture of a room. There is virtually no limit to the style of cove molding available. Concentration mills are able to create custom designed moldings.
Cove molding is often made from soft woods, plaster and vinyl. If the application is intended for an area that must be kept sanitary, the cove molding is generally made of corrosion-resistant polyester resin. It’s measured by the width and length of the molding form. It generally comes ready-made in six to eight foot parts, but can be custom-made in longer sections. You can intall cove molding by yourself but will be easier to have two people work as a team to install it. Apply finish or paint to the molding before you install it. One person holds a section in place and the other person attaches the section to the wall and ceiling using a drill or nail gun. Use plaster to cover nails or screws and paint to cover the plaster. Good luck!
