We can often find ourselves as homeowners at an impasse with design. Often we struggle with the need to make changes and improvements while finding ourselves short on the funds we need to achieve the improvements we want. The best design efforts we can make are those where we used innovation, imagination and less money as opposed to more money. Throwing money at a design for a look that could have been achieved for less is an act in futility. Most homeowners can’t afford high end looks and can’t afford the interior decorator that comes along with achieving the high end look. Here are some new ideas for achieving a great look without the huge expense.
Peel and stick crown molding is the new budget friendly answer to giving your home that distinctive, highly sought after look but without the extreme expense and difficulty of traditional crown molding. Now if you search online, you’ll find this product is readily available via Amazon, Ebay and a few other home improvement stores. You can find it in basic white, and also in wood grain finishes and they also include typically the inner corner moldings and a few external corner moldings with it. This makes the project a lot easier for those who are not handy and do not own a miter saw. This product may not be for everyone and it may not be suitable for your needs. I would suggest trying it on a small room initially, like a laundry room, a walk-in closet or guest bath to see how it suits you.
