Top it Off with Trim

Architectural elements definitely have an impact on the character of a home, and this is especially true of the interior spaces of the home. Decorative trim, an architectural element that is often used but occasionally under-appreciated, can make even the most plain-Jane room a dynamic and more visually interesting space, and can be used to connect various elements of the room – think of it as the ribbon that tops off a gorgeously wrapped gift.

Below are a few examples we recently came across on Houzz that outline how trim can be used to top off a room. Check them out.
