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.

Reviews

"Love the windows and patio door. We want to finish the whole house when we can financially. We give Anderson and employees, especially the sales rep Mike that came to our house, the highest rating. Mike was knowledgeable and courteous. Also not high pressure."

"Our installation team was top notch. While they said they were sending a "team"to install 21 windows it was only two people. But I see why, the process was seamless and everything was done correctly and consistently with the leadership of Clayton. We had a tiny problem with one window within a week of installation and their response time was prompt to remedy the situation. Our windows are beautiful. Our home is warm and cozy."
