Adding an interior trim around your doors and windows is a simple and easy way to instantly enhance your home’s interior aesthetics. Similar to baseboards, crown moulding, and railings, window and door casing adds a subtle yet noticeably distinct amount of detail, depth, and richness to any room.
One of the main benefits of having a casing around a window is having a nice deep sill to place decorative things on. The window sill can be as deep or narrow as you want it to be depending on what you’ll be using it for. If it’s a kitchen window, above the sink, it would be an ideal place to put some potted plants and add some fresh greenery to your kitchen. The piece below the window sill, called the apron can also be designed to your liking, perhaps something with more of a rich detail.
Door casings are a lot like window casings but without the sill or apron for obvious reason, it’s a walkway, not the ideal place for a decorative vase. Door casings are also installed in pieces and come in so many different options, styles, and designs. More than you can imagine, anywhere from Roman type designs to your standard clean cut look. You may actually like the look of the trimming on the doors and windows to be the same in one room. This can certainly be done however, you’ll find the casing around the doorway will need a larger more robust casing to look proportioned.
Nonetheless, the design options are endless. For more information on door and window casing, contact Crown Cornice Moulding to book a consultation.
