Watch the following video to learn about Interior Trim – what it is made of, the different types, tools used to install it and more! See text version below.

Interior Trim

Interior Trim can be casing – which goes around doors and windows, baseboard – which goes around the bottom of the floor, and crown molding – which goes around the top of trey ceilings and the top of the wall, joining the wall to the ceiling.

There are a lot of options in selection of interior trim, whether your style is a contemporary, traditional, coastal or cottage – the combination of baseboard and casing creates trim that fits the style of your home. If it was a Coastal home, you would want to make sure to pick out trim that matches that style.

In the mantle shown in the video, a Poplar material, which is fluted board with an MDF material creates the beautiful outline. We build all of our custom mantles and custom bookcases, using MDF material which is a medium density fiber board and is faced with a clear Poplar. We will be building doors on this particular bookcase around the fireplace, which will create a very nice finished, custom product.

Tools of the trade – include cordless drills, air staplers and air gun nails, mini routers to put edges on particular boards and bookcases, sanders, and different types of jigsaws.

There is a lot of variety with interior trim, so choose your builder and your trim wisely, after all, it is what makes the whole package come together nicely.
