Crown molding adds a distinctive, aesthetically exciting element to any room, and the corner detail can draw a big part of that attention.
But without properly fitted corner connections, your molding job can look sloppy, resulting in a visual eyesore, which no homeowner ever wants to happen. That said, any amount of research on traditional crown molding installation will likely turn up similar results: making good corner connections is intensive and precise work, with little to no tolerance for error, that can easily overwhelm people who want to complete the job on their own.
There are better alternatives out there. Focal Point Products has manufactured polyurethane crown moldings for decades now, and we've also created methods that streamline installation and cut down on frustration.
You can install our Moulding Mates™ corners, available to use with our Quick Clips™ system, or our traditional corner blocks for use with most molding installations. From beginners to experts, our products make any DIY project easier to accomplish.
What Are Our Corner Pieces?
From function to form our Molding Mate™ corners offer miter-free, snap on installation that contour perfectly with select Focal Point moldings, and all of our kits. Our corners cover molding ends, eliminating the need for precise and neat cuts.
You can select blocks that fit on inside or outside corners, and our components easily fit spaces with 90-degree angles.
How Do the Corner Blocks Work?
Take the hassle out of traditional corner block installation with our Quick Clip™ system.
You'll first need to secure the clip stem 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.
Benefits of Polyurethane Crown Molding Blocks
Focal Point's crown molding corners outperform other pre-formed options on the market for multiple reasons.
Above all, you don't have to miter your crown to ensure a neat corner connection. Mitering is complicated, and it typically demands skill, time and equipment. Most DIYers don't want that hassle, which is why our alternative is so popular.
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 procedures. Our components snap over the molding, not next to it. This subtle feature will hide up to half an inch of a strip's end from view.
All in all, you'll complete your project in a significantly quicker fashion than if you adhered to more complicated options that require mitering and other detail work.
