Pointers on Choosing the Right Interior Window Trim

If you ask home remodeling experts, they will tell you that windows are one of the most important visual elements in any room. This means you need to put some thought into how your windows look when viewed from inside the home.

Decide Your Window’s Role

Start by thinking about how much you want your windows to play a part in your room’s overall design. Do you want a specific window to act as a centerpiece, or is it there mostly to provide lighting, and you want something else to be the focal point of the room? Once you have that figure out, you’ll have two options: high-profile and low-profile trim.

High-Profile Trim

High-profile trim is characterized by prominent textures and strong lines. Simple high-profile trim options usually have multi-layered casings, but some windows will have trim with intricate patterns, especially traditional ones with fancy wooden finishes.

Low-Profile Trim

These trim options are designed to give your window a more subdued look. Low-profile trim isn’t as prominent, and some are even flat and flush against the surrounding wall. However, low-profile trim can also have multi-layer casings, although not as pronounced as those found in high-profile options.

Color

Your windows’ colors will also have a significant effect on how visible they are. While the window frame will usually dictate your interior trim’s color, it is possible to have trim of different colors. However, you’ll need help from a professional interior designer to make sure the new trim color does not clash with the rest of the window and their intended visual role.

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
