How to Cove a Ceiling?

Answer

To cove a ceiling, you first need to measure the walls where the moulding is to be installed. Cut 45° mitred ends for inside corners at the back of the trim. Mitre ends of the trim that stop along the wall where more than one piece is needed so that they slip up against each other easily. Cut the outside corners with a 45° angle so that the front side of the cove moulding is longer than the back. This ensures that the pieces form a point.
