When it comes to home décor, sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest difference. Trim details may seem like a small aspect of home design, but they can truly enhance the feel of a home in a significant way. Here are some reasons why paying attention to trim details is important.
- Adds a polished look
Trim details can be the final touch that can make a room look complete. It can also help to hide imperfections in walls or ceilings. Crown molding, for example, can add a finishing touch to a room and make the ceiling appear higher. Baseboards can make a room look more finished and add a layer of protection to the wall.
- Creates architectural interest
A simple room can be transformed with the addition of wainscoting or paneling. It can add texture and depth to a room, making it more visually appealing. Chair rails can also create a sense of height and break up a plain wall. Combining a taller baseboard with a built-up profile consisting of crown molding, a frieze board and picture rail can make a room feel much taller.
- Enhances the style of a room
Different types of trim can help to create a specific style. For example, beadboard or tongue and groove paneling can give a room a cottage feel. On the other hand, a clean and modern room can benefit from sleek and simple trim. The style of the trim can help to tie in the rest of the room’s/home’s décor and make it look more cohesive. We like to consider a client’s trim preference when designing a home so we can incorporate features and trim accents into the home to accent the client’s personal taste.
- Increases home value
Custom trim is a small investment that can make a big impact. Potential homebuyers are often drawn to homes with polished finishes, and trim details can help to give a home a more expensive and finished look. Well executed trim designs also make a home stand out from others on the market.
Paying attention to architectural trim details and designs can truly enhance the feel of a home. It’s the small touches that can make a big difference in how a room looks and feels. Trim details can add a polished look, create architectural interest, enhance the style of a room, and increase the value of a home.
