Molding & Trim

When it comes to infusing your home with rich, historical flavor, wood details—such as wainscoting, beaded board, paneling, and crown molding—are a worthwhile investment. Ornate trimwork and molding can be the ultimate design statement in a room, adding interest to walls and clearly defining each space. In less than a weekend, you can install trimwork in a room to add depth and interest to walls. Molding and trimwork aren't just for walls and ceilings; find ideas for using trimwork around doors, windows, and fireplaces to highlight distinctive features and create focal points throughout your home. To make trimwork stand out, paint it a lighter shade than your walls and ceiling. Regardless of your home's age, installing molding and trimwork is a small investment well worth the payoff. Looking to add molding and trim on a budget? Architectural salvage and construction demolition businesses might be a good source for purchasing remodeling materials at a lower cost than new materials. Find design ideas and learn how to install trim in your home with our expert advice for preserving your home's classic good looks and timeless charm.
