5 Creative Trim Ideas to Add Character to Your Home

While it’s not typically the star of interior design shows (with the exception of shiplap, of course!), trim and mouldings are some of the most versatile home building products out there. From beadboard to crown molding, trim profiles can be found in just about every width and style. And with PVC trim that can be painted and used anywhere, inside or outside your home, the design possibilities are endless.

Here are just a few of our favorite creative ways to use trim:

Design an Accent Wall

Use interior trim to create a grid accent wall that elevates the style and drama of a particular space. It is the perfect way to make a builder grade home feel more custom, or make an otherwise ordinary room feel unique and special.

Frame a Fireplace

Create an Entryway Mirror

A DIY entryway mirror with hooks gives you a place to hang your keys and check your hair before heading out the door.

Make a Candle Holder

Panel an Interior Door
