Interior trim boards, which are also called molding pieces, can be found in any residential interior. They’re common interior design pieces that cover the joints between different materials and surfaces, which can either be base molding at the bottom of a wall or as casings around your doors and windows. With many different designs available, it can be hard to pick the right trim boards for your interiors, especially your windows. To help you decide, our window and siding replacement team at ExteriorPros shares more insight:
Common Trim Types
Interior trim boards can be applied in almost any decorative element. Some of the most common types include crown molding, columns, baseboards, ceiling medallions, and fireplace surrounds. Interior trim is also used on door and window casings to create a frame around the opening. They’re also used to hide the gap between the adjacent wall and the jamb.
Useful Tips to Remember
- Consistency is Important – While you may choose more than one trim style for each of your windows and doors, you need to be sure that they all conform to your overall interior design. And as a trusted specialist among window and soffit contractors, we strongly advise against installing many trim styles within your home. Having several trim styles throughout your home’s interiors can clash with the rest of the design elements, making them stand out more and lose their visual appeal.
- Match Your Trim Elements – Trim styles vary in nature, and you’ll often have additional design options for each of them. Make sure that your selections match especially where the trim places intersect. You should also understand how each trim type should be placed, such as the vertical pieces on a paneled wall shouldn’t be thicker than the horizontal trim.
