We’ve all heard the words, ‘Interior trim’ used often by interior designers but what is Interior Trim exactly? You know the thin strip of wall (or molding in technical terms) that divides the wall and the floor? That’s an interior trim. Likewise, interior trims are found in many parts of the house, which you will begin to discover after reading this blog. But what is so special about them? Because home designers now have turned their attention to give the interior trims a facelift. And guess what, we found that it changes the entire interior game of a house.
From crown moldings to railings and from baseboards to casings, trim is one design element that provides detail, depth and a sense of luxury to any room. The detail invested in these elements allows for more opulence, elegance and grace for your home. As most contemporary houses use polished glazed vitrified tiles for flooring, we will concentrate on molding and trim elements to complement the splendour of your room.
1) Bring Some Modern In
Popularly used where the kitchen wall tiles, bathroom floor tiles, or any wall in the house comes together with the floor, the baseboard or base trim conceals gaps between the finishes as well as provides protection from daily wear and tear. Conventionally, the base comprises of three separate parts i.e. a shoe, the baseboard and the cap. These elements individually draw out the intricacy of your tiles and allow an elegant feel to adorn your home/office. These bases are more often than not, are made of one piece in order to attain a cleaner and more contemporary aesthetic.
2) A Thing Of Beauty
The next piece of trim after the base is the chair rail. This trim item protects the wall finish from any furniture that is placed against it. The key factor to consider while installing a chair rail is how it splits the wall into horizontal layers and requires getting those proportions absolutely right so your room can look absolutely gorgeous. Once you have the proportions exactly right, the true beauty of your pearl toned tiles will be accentuated.
3) The Luxury Element
While the space between the chair rail and baseboard can be decorated with tiles of your choice, more often than not that area is paneled. There are several options available for wainscots, like beadboard, wood panels, raised panels and horizontal wood paneling. The noticeable thing about the wainscot is that it helps beautify your room and can provide a Victorian style element to the same. There is no better way to amplify your tiles’ expression than with the help of interior trim.
