PVC is easy to work with, especially if you want it white. Then you don't need to prime or paint it. This style is good for LED lighting, it has space behind it for hiding wires and holds the LEDs away from the wall enough for a decent projection.
Unless you need a real stained wood look, I find the PVC composite moulding easy to work with. They are lite weight, easily cut and accept paint well. For this particular moulding, I mount it with ceramic tile adhesive and just some finishing nails from my nail gun. The PVC composite is also easy to sand making it easy to tidy up corners and mitered butts.
Crown is easy to mount because 45 degree spring angle has nice large flat surfaces on both the top and bottom of the crown. I like that it will not be expand or contract with moisture and temperature change which makes it perfect for bathrooms. Mitering inside corners came out very nice if you know how to miter crown correctly. I tried several times unsucsscesfully to cope the miter joints on test pieces only to find out that a simple double miter looks good. I would not suggest trying to cope this material.

Easy to cut with standard hand tools and miter block. Adds a nice classy touch to cabinets without being overly costly. Some discrepancies between pieces so try to make all joints from same piece if able.
Nice small molding. This is really a Bed molding but you can use it as crown molding like I did. I have a very crooked ceiling in my laundry room, installing wood crown molding would have been very difficult. This molding is flexible and easy to install on crooked walls & ceilings. After painted looks like wood & it wont expand & contract like wood.
