Matching Your Window Trim with Your Home’s Interior

To provide natural light and ventilation–that’s what your windows do. But this doesn’t mean they should look out of place with the rest of your home. You should focus on their trim for this reason, making sure it will blend seamlessly with your interiors. Renewal by Andersen® of New Jersey, the premier picture windows installer in the area, shares a few handy tips.

Window Trim with Your Home’s Interior

  • Make sure the trim profile is consistent. The trim refers to the frame surrounding your windows, giving them a finished look. It comes in many different profiles that can accentuate the overall look and feel of a given room. The general rule of thumb when matching windows with your home’s interior is to just use a single profile. This makes the windows appear more cohesive with the style of the space. Picking a single profile also helps soften the transition between two rooms, even if one has a different color palette than the other.

  • Pick a window trim that works best with the style of the room. A modern window trim, for instance, will match beautifully with minimalistic interiors because their clean and flat design blends in rather than stand out. If your home interior has a more traditional vibe, a complete window trim, which is either made up of a simple layer of molding or multiple layers of stacked molding, will do. This kind of trim appears more decorative and charming when paired with classic casement windows.

  • Keep the window trim to scale. You’ll want to make sure the window trim is proportional to the size of the room. In rooms that are tall and large, a thicker trim should be used to better highlight the windows. But if the room is on the smaller side, a thinner and simpler window trim would be the better choice.
