Everything about your windows should match your interior to create a seamless look. The trims around your windows, for instance, are called casings, which are the finishing touch to window installation. While they may seem like a minor detail you could easily overlook, they can either make or break your home’s overall look.
In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Long Island, a window replacement company in the area, shares some tips on how to pick the perfect interior trim for windows.
This type of casing surrounds all four sides of your windows, which can be a simple layer of molding or stacked moldings. It should also complement the rest of the moldings in your home for a harmonious appearance.
Instead of being a mere decorative feature, low-profile casings emphasize utility over aesthetics. It helps block cold air from entering your living space and keeps heated air inside your home. Moreover, it lends a finished look, which visually ties windows to the entire interior design.
Unlike other casings, this trim design provides the most options. It can either outline the entire window or sit as a pediment above the window. It can also be paired with one-piece casings, which can fit most traditional and Victorian homes.
Contemporary homes can benefit from modern casings that provide minimal yet sophisticated lines. This type of casing is meant to blend with the rest of the home rather than standing out. Note that in most 21st-century homes, the glass often takes the center stage rather than the moldings.
