How to Choose Interior Trim
Interior trim is something most home buyers don’t give much thought to until asked by their builder. Interior trim certainly does not get the attention that kitchens and baths do in the home planning process. But, interior trim is one of the most visible and important aesthetic elements of your home. Without it, a room would only be four walls. Casings, crown moulding, baseboards, chair rails and wainscoting all add architectural details that absolutely define a room and bring it character and elegance.
