Have you ever stood in a freshly painted room and still thought something was missing? Did you feel there was something you overlooked? Then the realization dawns; your interior trim still has the old look while your walls and ceiling looks refreshed and new. But just what is your interior trim? Put simply, it is the various pieces of molding which frames your walls, windows, ceilings, doors, and floors. It can range from flat pieces of wood between the bottoms of walls and floor, to intricately designed chair railings which is a narrow trim around the same height as that of your average chair back.
There are also certain other areas we consider as ‘trim’ and which we can help bring back to life and have matching – or complementing – the new paintwork on ceilings and doors. A very good example of an area which we can paint or stain to enhance the overall look of your room is your fireplace mantle. With the right choice of paints – or varnish – you can totally transform the space from its previous look.

It is usually easy to pick one – or even two – colors for the main part of your project. But when you have to consider one or maybe more colors for the trims in that location, then it can become trickier. Our team of professional painters not only have the experience and skills to do any painting work professionally, they also have a great idea for detail and which colors can match, complement, or clash. With the right choices of colors for your trims, it can be amazing how those areas can enhance the main surface areas, even when the main color is a fairly neutral one.
So Much Trim!
Some rooms may have very basic trim such as around windows and doors and some baseboards, while other rooms may have multiple trim areas which will need special consideration. Good examples of some of these ‘extra’ trims are things such as ceiling medallions, which are a feature found in the middle of the ceiling and usually round or oval in shape. Occasionally you might find interior paneling, particularly on lower portions of walls and which can be made from various materials including plywood. If you have a number of trim areas, spend a good amount of time with our designers before making a final choice on colors. And remember, if we don’t have the exact color you are looking for, we can always mix colors to try and create it.
Experience is the Key
Deciding on a look is a difficult decision, but deciding on a look when it possibly involves multiple colors takes that difficulty to a whole new level. Our vast experience and knowledge of helping homeowners turn their ideas into reality is the key to ensuring a room with lots of trim ends up looking fantastic.
