Are crown or cove molding corners easier to cut? Are crown or cove molding corners easier to cut?
Cove molding can be a remodeling nightmare. Cutting corners for standard crown molding requires the ability to lay the molding flat on the miter saw table, and cutting to length. Because crown molding uses the same L-shaped design that other molding uses, it is easier to cut inner and outer corners with it. Cove molding does not lie flat against the wall or ceiling. The concave design of cove molding creates a channel in behind the molding that can make it extremely difficult to line up in corners. Especially problematic are outer corners where the mitered connections need to line up exactly right to look clean.
