Types of Trim for Your Home

When it comes to adding distinctive touches to your home, one of the best ways to do is by adding trim of some type. The options are virtually endless and limited only by your imagination (and the competency of your custom home builder). Floor to ceiling and every place in between, you have so many ways to incorporate decorative trim in your home to add personality and design flair. TJ Builders knows that your home is more than just a dwelling space. It represents who you are and what your family is all about. Personal style is a way to express what truly matters to your family. From farmhouse chic to modern minimal lines, adding a touch of trim can create an instant style for your home.


If you aren’t on board just yet, we’d like to give you a few reasons why trim work is a great addition. Apart from the style and decor components, trim work is great for hiding gaps and joints quickly and easily. Within every home, the point at which two surfaces meet (think floor to wall and wall to ceiling) may be visually imperfect. Trim is the perfect way to hide these imperfections. Let’s look at some of the common types of trim work from which you can derive inspiration.



1. Crown Molding

This type of trim work covers a beautiful transition from wall to ceiling and can be as ornate or simplistic as you like.


2. Baseboards

Baseboards are placed where the wall and floor surface meets. Again, this is a great way to create a seamless flow from the floor to the wall and cover any flaws at the intersection.


3. Door Casing

Trim that extends around a door is called door casing. Not only does casing help hide any gaps between the door itself and the surrounding drywall, but it is also aesthetically pleasing and gives doorways an architectural flair.
