  General   Tips   

When it comes time to give tours of your rental property to potential tenants, you want your rental to not only be functional, but aesthetically pleasing. Many landlords overlook small details that can actually pique the interest of tenants, and allow you to keep rent prices higher. One of the details that many tenants will notice when doing a walk-through is crown molding. Here we have 7 reasons why you should install crown molding in your rental property.

1. Turn Your Rental from Boring to Amazing

The simple addition of crown molding can make any bland room instantly, more visually appealing. Crown molding can accentuate doors and windows, to give rooms a classier feel.

2. Make the Space Bigger

The use of crown molding around doors, windows, and entryways actually makes the space look bigger than it is. Even if it is a small property, crown molding will make the tenant feel like it is a larger space.

3. Create a Serene Space

By using white crown molding, as well as white paint on walls and trim throughout the property, you will create a space that is inviting and serene.

4. Enhance a Room's Natural Light

When the shades are drawn and sunlight is streaming in through your rental's windows, crown molding can actually enhance this natural light. The room will feel bigger, brighter, and people will want to spend time in it.

5. Give Your Rental a Sophisticated Look

The small details of a property matter to potential renters. Crown molding is a great way to make even an older property, feel sophisticated and new. Consider adding crown molding to the bathrooms to make them feel bigger and give the property a classier feel.

6. Show Renters You Care About the Property

By adding nice touches, like crown molding, renters will clearly see that the property is well-maintained and you, the landlord, care about how your tenants feel.

7. Increase Property Value

While additions like crown molding are great ways to maintain a higher rent price, these additions can also mean a higher payout should you decide to sell the property in the future. By taking the time to make these changes now, you are investing in the future sale of the property. Just like renters, buyers love crown molding!

As you contemplate remodeling your rental property consider adding crown molding to enhance the property's natural light, space, and beauty!
