Re: Why is small crown molding being overlooked?
There is no one, simple answer. Truth is, most people are copying whatever the latest fad is that's being promoted by the plethora of home "improvement" and decorator shows. They don't care about period accuracy, or even what is aesthetically pleasing, which is a crown that is properly sized to the room and ceiling height. Let's face it, it's their house and their money, they can do what they like.
Now, if someone is trying to do a vintage restoration, then they're going to pay closer attention to what was used at the time the house was built.
