Crown Molding Detail Closeup - Reveal

Quoting the architect: “We designed a minimal 1/2” drywall reveal joint that runs below the crown moulding. This subtle detail creates a shadow line between the drywall and crown moulding. The same 1/2” reveal occurs at the top of the baseboard to separate the 1-1/2” wood trim band that flows from the base and around the doorways and portals.” In my opinion details like this take architectural elements beyond just being very nice and make them truly superb!Tip: There are ways to give the look of very wide crown moulding that are less costly than buying very large-profile mouldings. In this detail shot, notice the two layers of drywall creating ceiling detail. These two extra pieces give the illusion of an exceptionally wide crown moulding – and they do it without having to come so far down the wall.
