Decorative Molding and Trim Transforms an Ordinary Room into an Extraordinary One
Installing molding and trim in a room is a simple way to transform a bland, basic box. Because these architectural details instantly add dimension and texture, designers routinely use them to create depth, width and height – turning a plain space into an eye-catching showcase.
Custom trimwork has long been a hallmark of K&B Home Solutions. You will typically find some form of it (and in most cases many forms!) in our new construction and remodeling projects. We like to think of molding and trim as the built-in accessories of a room and tend to install them beyond the traditional ceiling crown and baseboard. When it comes to trim, you should think outside the box. Here are some ideas on how to use trim to create your own mark of distinction in your home.
Decorative Molding and Trim
Window and Door Moldings
Dressing up windows and doors with another layer of molding is a great way to amp up these features. Adding decorative trim to builder-grade moldings will instantly boost the character of your interior.
Define your home’s casings by wrapping them with trim. Casings are the openings between the rooms of your home without doors. Framing the casings with substantial-sized decorative molding defines the space and adds visual interest to a seamless wall.
Dramatic crown molding draws the eye up making ceilings appear larger. Be sure to pair wide or deep crown molding with a wide baseboard to balance the room.
A baseboard does more than cover up the space between the floor and the walls. It adds dimension and underlies the design of the room. Dress up your décor with a decorative baseboard.
Add luxurious detail to a dining room wall with custom wainscoting created from trim. This built-in accessory warms up an entertaining area.
