Interior Window Trim Ideas for Every Home Style
Explore window trim styles and materials.
Window trim is used to cover gaps and help define your home’s style by adding decorative appeal. Most builders and designers match the window trim style to the architecture of the home to create a cohesive look, but if you’re replacing your windows, you might want to spice things up a bit from how they originally looked.
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.
Wood trim is customizable and can be ordered in custom or standard styles. Wood trim is also available for curved windows. Regardless of what shape or size you choose, it is assembled with special care for a smooth, consistent grain appearance.
Window Trim Styles
As mentioned above, window trim is available in four styles: Colonial, Craftsman, Ranch and Provincial. In total, between the four styles, there are 34 individual options to choose from.
When you look at the different styles, Provincial and colonial trim pair well with stately, traditional homes, while Craftsman has a geometric, clean cut vibe, and Ranch trim is elegant and smooth.
