Trim work and molding adds an elegant touch to your home. Make your living room, library, entryway, or staircase even more luxurious by adding a statement accent. There are many styles of trim and molding to choose from, so finding a design to complement your existing décor is easy. Consider these trim and molding ideas to update your interior decorating.
- Dentil Molding
If you have an affinity for collecting antiques, consider a trim style that will make your collection stand out. Dentil molding is easy to install and adds eye-catching elegance. Strongly associated with Classical and Neoclassical architecture, this molding is anything but basic.
- Raised Panel Wainscoting
If you would like to add timeless sophistication to any room, consider installing raised paneling. By adding decorative paneling to your walls, you can transform a boring room into a modern rustic affair. Keep the look classical by painting both the walls and the paneling white or create an accent piece by painting the walls a varying color.
- Wall Frame Molding
Whether you have a lot of art on the walls, or nothing at all, wall frame molding will only enhance your artistic décor elements. This design element can be found in Georgian or Neoclassical décor. This elegant design adds unbeatable interest to your home and takes minimal effort to install.
- Column Detailing
If you would like to include a subtle design, or even a grand statement design, element to a door or entryway, try column detailing. This trim style adds texture and intrigue to your home. Impress your guests with inviting accent details that lead them into any room.
Wishing to add interest to your staircase? Install some balustrade and turn a boring staircase into a beautiful palatial design. Balustrade is defined as a “row of small columns topped by a rail.” The style was extremely popular in the 15th century with Italian palaces.
- Tread Brackets
Yet another distinctive trim to enhance a staircase, tread brackets add an attention-grabbing element to the side of any staircase. You can choose a classic style or a more modern, geometrical shape.
