Window trim is used to cover gaps and help define your home’s style by adding decorative appeal.

Use this guide of window trim ideas to understand the functionality and aesthetic opportunities of interior window casing.

Interior Window Trim

Interior trim looks best when coordinated with baseboards, crown moulding and chair rails. A baseboard trim is a molding laid against a wall to connect your home’s flooring to the walls. Similarly, crown moulding connects walls to the ceiling.

Chair rails, on the other hand, are architectural flourishes that can be added to a wall to give the room a sense of refinement and proportion. Your interior window casing will look best when you match it to the other molding that’s in your home.

Window Trim Colors

Window trim comes in a variety of prefinished paint colors and unfinished and finished wood stain colors. All interior trim styles are available in Pine; select styles are available in Oak. If you choose to have your wood trim stained, color options include Natural, Golden Oak, Early American, Wheat, Provincial, Dark Mahogany, Red Mahogany, Charcoal and Black. Trim paint colors include White, Bright White, Linen White and Primed.
