The Big Picture
You can finish your home with any type of trim, but a one-size-fits-all or “on the cheap” approach can dramatically affect the outcome – and not in a good way. Take some time to research your trim options and materials.
Once you have a solid understanding of what’s available, the better able you will be to make choices that will complement your design. Be sure to thoroughly communicate what you want to your installer or remodeler to make sure they understand your intentions and have actual experience installing the trim you desire.
When you set out to research your project, there are two things to consider: materials and the finished look. You’ll want to know all of the materials available, and consider the advantages and disadvantages of each. Also be sure to study optional finishes and make sure you weigh the aesthetic value of every option.
