TRIMWORK TRANSFORMS HOMES
The Affordable Way to Go From Boring to Elegant and Dramatic
Trimwork adds value, elegance and drama to a home. One of the easiest and most affordable home improvements, trimwork provides distinctive architectural detail that fi nishes off a room while creating mood and character.
Boring empty rooms can be transformed with the addition of distinctive mouldings and trim that soften hard angles and add charm and personality. Many homeowners begin by replacing standard trim window casing and doorframe trim with a more unique moulding profile. Simple additions can dramatically improve the look of a room.
Until recently even modest homes were typically designed and built to include trim details that revealed period trends and homeowners’ tastes. Trimwork adorning walls, doors, windows, and mantles, came to identify the classic housing styles that form the backbone of American architecture.
You might choose the classic look of wainscoting as trim for walls. Used to easily formalize a dining or entertainment space, it also adds visual interest to blank or boring walls and has maintained strong appeal for many years. Chair rails are another creative wall option. Perhaps you’ll choose to apply wallpaper on top and paint beneath, or use two different colors or textures on your walls. Another option is to install a picture rail to display cherished artwork.
Knowledgeable interior designers know not to overlook one of the largest surfaces in your room – the ceiling. Available in a variety of styles and sizes suitable for the scale of any space, custom crown moulding will spice up a flat ceiling. For an even more stately appearance, consider coffered ceilings that project style and sophistication while providing amazing acoustics.
