How To Install Crown Molding Vaulted Ceiling
Crown molding vaulted ceiling – It can be an overwhelming task when it comes to installation of such ceiling. This article is a tutorial that will teach you how. You should have to ensure that each of pieces needs to correctly be cut to get best installation of the crown molding. Just like what you can see that the illustration shows the room we are going to working with for our cuts. There are 4 pieces and 6 mitered cuts in total are going to be needed. You need to measure the wall so that able to find the slope angle on your vaulted ceiling.
A miter divider can help you to quickly find the angle. You can hold the miter divider up at the slope point on your vaulted ceiling. Otherwise, you can also do a measurement from the tallest part to get the vertical distance down to the ceiling lowest part. Then, the horizontal distance can be measured along the wall from the slope point starts to where it ends. You better to make sure not to do measuring not at an angle but horizontally to the ground. In vaulted ceiling illustration sloped from 8′ high to 10′ high (24 of vertical change) and the horizontal slope distance was 34.25”.

In order to find the slope degree, first take the distance of vertical and divide it by the horizontal distance. In my case, 24″/34.25″ equals to 0.70. Then take the tangent inversely of that number. You can use handy tools to do the measurement. I plugged 0.70 value into this Inverse Tangent Calculator and determined that my angle was 35 degrees. Now that we know my vaulted ceiling slope I can proceed on the crown molding with making the miter cuts.
