What To Know Before You Buy Flexible Molding

Flexible molding is a way to add crown molding, baseboard molding, and trim to areas of your home. It is a budget option for most people. The flexible option can also give you more variety in colors and in designs than traditional molding. Before you buy this type of molding, there are several things you need to know. Here are some of those choices you should consider and be ready for when you proceed with buying flexible molding. 

Width and Length

The width of the flexible molding is important to your purchase. There are several widths depending on the end result and look you want for your room. If you want a small and subtle look, such as molding around the baseboard area of the walls, then a smaller one-inch or inch-and-a-half width may be ideal. However, flexible crown molding could be up to four inches wide if you want a more evident look with defined styles. You will also need to find molding that equals the length of the hallway, wall area, or room area. You can run a continuous strip of flexible molding to complete the project without cutting. This is what helps give a seamless appearance.


It may surprise you that flexible crown molding comes in a variety of colors. These colors can be part of a traditional color scheme or customized for the room you have in mind. You can go with any color that you can imagine in most cases. You can also paint the molding to fit your decor theme. The key point to remember with choosing a color for the molding is that the sky's the limit. You are not necessarily held to the same color limitations you would be with a traditional molding material. 


There are some traditional designs you can have added to traditional molding. Scrollwork and ivy chains are the most common of these designs. When you choose to use flexible molding, you have a variety of designs available. There are many manufacturers of this type of crown molding and each manufacturer has their own designs and takes on those designs. This gives you a wide variety to choose from and the chance to find a molding that fits your personality and design. 

Buying flexible molding is much easier than you may think. You do not have to go to a specialized company or hardware provider. You can buy flexible molding from various hardware and home improvement stores both on and offline. As long as you have the key information you need to place your order, you will be able to place the order and have it delivered directly to your door. You can also choose in-store shopping or curbside delivery depending on your store choice. 

If you want to buy flexible molding, contact a local supplier.
