Your crown molding and trim add contrast to your space. It can visually break walls up and allow for a more comprehensive color palette. Because crown molding is traditionally an intricate design and because trim experiences typically a high volume of traffic, it's crucial that these two wall features are regularly maintained.
Since crown molding and trim are different from walls, they require a more specific approach and product to their painting. Between proper prep and choosing the right prime, paint, and finish, painting your trim and molding can be a bit more complicated. With Paintzen's expertise and attention to detail, we can deliver flawless results.

Painting Crown Molding
Crown molding is a popular feature in many homes because it adds sophistication, character, and height to a room. Part of crown molding’s appeal is that it helps define walls. It makes your walls and ceilings look complete.
It’s called crown molding for a reason. It sits atop the room, is elegant, draws the eye up, and demands attention. Using a high gloss finish gives your room an extra high-quality feel.
There are a couple of different approaches to painting crown molding. You can paint it with a brush, but you can also use a paint sprayer. The paint sprayer offers the benefit of providing an even coat throughout all the nooks and crannies of the crown molding’s design. But a steady hand, a good brush, and some patience and expertise will do just as good a job.
The ideal scenario is painting the crown molding alongside the rest of your interior painting project. We usually start from the top and move our way down to the bottom of the wall to help reduce and clean up paint splatters.
Painting Baseboards, Trim, & Windows
Painting baseboards, trim, and windows is equally important and just as challenging. Because these areas are higher traffic and more likely to encounter frequent wear and tear, it’s essential to maintain the paint’s integrity.
We clean the trim with a damp rag. Clean trim helps us find any nail holes that might need covering. With some pre-prime, we are then ready to add a coat of paint or two with some nice smooth and even brush strokes.
