Choosing the perfect trim for your home can be a little overwhelming, but it’s totally worth the effort. Even the most well-designed spaces need the right trim and moulding — it’s the finishing touch your home has been waiting for! Keep reading to see examples of how trim can make a huge difference in your home’s design.

You may not have ever considered what your home’s exterior would look like without trim. It’s such an integral part of a house! But have you considered what a different style or color of trim might do for your home’s design? For example, wider trim styles lend sophistication to the simple, functional lines of a Craftsman, and narrower trim can lend homes a simultaneous air of sleekness and quaint charm.
