Whether I'm flipping through a magazine or watching the latest home show on TV, I'm always drawn to a house's trim. I love how the use of different architectural trim elements can completely change the feel of the entire house. Sometimes that can be good, and sometimes it can be utterly awful.
replaced our outdated and wallet-busting single-pane aluminum windows
with energy-efficient double-pane vinyl windows in our kitchen nook, I
began dreaming of adorning the windows with beautiful trim. I was
excited for the end result, but since I'm always so focused on trim in
other people's homes, I was completely terrified about actually
choosing the trim and putting it in place in my own home.
The possibilites for trim are positively endless. I wanted to keep
things pretty simple for our 1900 cabin-style home, but I also wanted to
let the trim draw the eye and showcase our view to the backyard. I got
lost in all of the choices online. So I pulled back, checked out our
local home store and went with my gut. Luckily, I found installing the
trim to be a much easier process than picking it.
