Crown Molding on Cathedral ceilings?

Hello,

My husband and I are in the process of installing new base boards and crown molding in our house. The entrance of the living/dinning room has cathedral ceiling and I am not sure if it will look right. Has anyone done this? Anyone have pictures? I keep seeing posts about vaulted ceilings but mine are cathedral. Thanks.

A cathedral ceiling has equal sloping sides, meeting in the middle of a room at a ridge and also has the same pitch as the (outside) roof structure.


A vaulted ceiling can have unequal sloping sides, a single sloping side, or a curved/arched slope. Vaulted ceilings, are not typically constructed using the same pitch as the roof and are often framed using scissor trusses.

Either way it will look good with ceiling mold if done correctly.

I always thought it was the other way around, but I sure don't know. Based on your definition of cathedral, that is what we have in one of our rooms and it has crown moulding...looks really good to me.

Installing trim for cathedral or vaulted ceilings with transitions can be confusing, but this site has some tips that will help.

C-Man, that is some good information in that link, thanks. I did the outside corner on a fireplace like the fellow using the kill blocks, in the link, but I can't remember how I did it. The best I remember I added some additional trim or something, man, this getting old stuff.
