Crown moulding corner blocks are frequently used in crown moulding installation projects to address out of square corners. They are also aesthetically attractive and in many cases are used even if the corners of a room are square.

Crown moulding corner blocks can help to accent crown moulding and can turn an otherwise simple crown moulding look into an intricate and ornate pattern. Crown moulding corner blocks are also frequently used with divider blocks. Crown moulding divider blocks are used for long spans.

Crown moulding corner blocks also prevent the need for making intricate crown moulding angled cuts, such as coped cuts or mitered cuts.

There are two main types of crown moulding corner blocks. There are inside corner crown moulding blocks as well as outside corner blocks.

Due to the fact that corner blocks simplify the installation of crown moulding they are ideal for do it yourself homeowners tackling their first crown moulding project.

In addition, besides simplifying the installation project they also prevent the need for buying an expensive miter saw. And because they are available in a myriad of shapes, sizes, and patterns no one needs to know you chose them for ease of installation over intricacy and charm.

Crown Moulding Corner Blocks

When installing crown moulding, and using corner blocks, it is best to install the corner blocks first.

If the corner blocks do not fit perfectly into the corners, file the edges to get a tight fit.
Make sure you pre-drill the corner blocks to prevent them from splitting when nailing them to the walls. Also, locate the position of the nails on the corner blocks so that the crown moulding sections will cover them.After the crown moulding corner blocks have been installed, square cut the sections of crown moulding to fit in between the corner blocks. If there are any seams touch them up with a little caulk prior to painting.
