Any decorative element covering the joints of various surfaces and materials is called trim or molding. The casings surrounding your windows and doors are just one of the many examples. They conceal the gaps between the jamb and the adjacent wall, creating a frame with a flat outer edge to give way for additional horizontal trim.
In designing your interior with energy efficient windows, you must make sure their trim blends well with the other interior elements. Here are some ways to do it:
Your windows’ casing, as well as the trim features in some of your interior fixtures, must conform with the architectural style of your home. Consistency matters, even if the amount of trim is greater in one area of your home than in the other. Putting too much of it, however, can detract from the overall appeal of your home’s interior.
Match Every Trim Element
Every room in your home must have matching trim designs. For instance, the casings surrounding your ENERGY STAR windows must be the same thickness as the baseboard and chair rail. Make sure that the end of a plate rail that converges with the horizontal part of the window casing is finished to cover the grain.
Aside from consistency, you should also focus on how every interior trim is proportionate to the size of the room. This, however, can be quite challenging to do. However, the reputable pros of Renewal by Andersen of Boise can guide you with this. They have a keen eye for detail, which helps determine the scale of your replacement windows’ trim. They can also take exact measurements to ensure the windows are a perfect fit.
