The greatest way to add some major character to a space is by adding molding. It instantly takes a blank slate and makes it cool and dignified. I love the juxtaposition of modern and classic. Adding molding to a modern space gives the illusion of maturity and character. Here are a few molding and trim ideas to create this look.

+ Baseboards are of course a must! Starting at the floor, baseboards are the visual foundation for a room.

+ Casings is the trim that wraps from one side of the wall to the other It defines the opening and protects the wall surface from scratches.

+ Crown Molding is itself a game changer. Adding it to the top of the room can add grandness.

+ Finishing Touches can include painting moldings the same color as the wall but in a semigloss enamel finish. This trick makes a room feel larger.

  1. I have a small town home and I have been wanting to do picture frame moulding, will that make the room look smaller? Also, I thought I would do the moulding in a satin finish? Doe your recommend the satin or semi gloss for the moulding?
