Here's one for the interior designers. Our house has polyurethaned
pine wood trim and base board. We have white ceilings and colored
walls. Can we have white crown molding on the ceiling and keep a
varnished pine wood base board trim?
Might make the pine stick out like a sore thumb. Is the pine "something
you don't want it the same color?. Painting trim a strong contrast to
walls makes the the trim stand
out more......looks good if the doors and windows are even and balanced.
The first reason that comes to my mind is cost. Paint-grade molding is
cheaper than finish-grade.
Suggestion: Go buy eight-foot pieces of primed and finish-grade molding
similar to what you want. Tack them up temporarily in a visible place,
then stand back and look at them for a few days. When you decide which
you like better, go back and buy enough for the room. You can even
return the samples if you didn't damage them.
The answer, of course, is that you can have whatever you want: after
all, it's your house.
Here's something to consider: use picture mold instead of crown mold,
which is what was used in most rooms in yesteryear. Depending on the
size of the room, this would be a better proportion (plus you could
actually use it to hang pictures, which after all was its original
Available at most better lumber suppliers.
Washing one\'s hands of the conflict between the powerful and the
powerless means to side with the powerful, not to be neutral.
