Crown molding adds a distinctive, aesthetically exciting element to a room's walls and ceiling. The corner detail can draw the attention of anyone walking into that room. But without properly fitted corners, your molding job will look sloppy, resulting in a visual eyesore. That said, any amount of research on traditional crown molding installation will likely turn up similar results: making corners fit tightly at 90 degree angles is intensive and precise work, with little to no tolerance for error.
What Are Our Corner Pieces used for?
Our patented crown molding corners are used to offer a miter-free, snap on installation of crown molding. With numerous profiles of crown molding available, Focal Point offers Molding Mates™ corners that contour perfectly with each style of crown molding offered in our kits. The corners cover the molding ends, eliminating the need for precise angles and clean cuts. Our corner pieces fit on inside or outside corners that are at 90-degree angles. With each crown molding kit we offer, 4 inside corner pieces will be included, and you can add clip-on outside corner pieces for any rooms that needs them.
If outside corners are needed for your installation, you can purchase them by ordering a "corner kit". Each corner kit has an outside corner, an additional inside corner, and a piece of crown molding of the style you are purchasing. Order your crown molding with corners now.

HOW DO THE CROWN MOLDING CORNER PIECES WORK?
The corner pieces included with our kits feature our Quick Clip™ system. You'll first need to secure a corner clip at one of the room's corners, which requires just two screws. From there, you can measure out the rest of the Quick Clips™, install the molding, and connectors. The corner blocks come last, and you'll need to position them over the clips and drive them upward to snap them in, completing the connection.
To learn more about how simple our corner pieces are to install, simply watch the quick video below. The corner pieces simply snap into place in mere seconds, even with no prior installation experience of our kits. If you aren't a fan of the look of the clip on corners, we also offer inside corner blocks and miter-free outside corners that can be used as a substitute.
Benefits of The Clip-on corners
Mitering inside and outside corners is complicated, and it typically demands skill, time and equipment. Many DIYers and homeowners don't own air tools, such as a compressor and nail gun, and they don't own a miter saw, which makes our kits even more ideal. All you'll need is a few hand tools and a screw gun.
Another attractive benefit of the clip system is that it cuts out the need for nails and screws, which you would need to drive directly through the face of the corner block to secure it. This method is unsightly and hard to cover up, and adhesives can lose their strength over time. Our clips provide the ideal middle ground.
You also won't need to be too concerned about making perfect cuts — a common demand of traditional installation procedures. Our corner components snap over the molding, not next to it. This subtle feature will hide up to half an inch of molding at the end of your pieces.
All in all, you'll complete your project faster than if you adhered to more complicated options that require mitering and other detail work.
