What to Consider When Remodeling Trim


A great renovation is all about the details. Sure, the big stuff – like knocking down walls, installing cabinets, and replacing windows – can be fun, but the real beauty of a newly renovated room comes from the smaller things being done perfectly. One of the smaller elements many homeowners overlook when remodeling is trim.

You may think that trim is just trim, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. When replacing trim in your Kansas City project, there are a few things to consider in order to make the finished room the best it can be.


Trim comes in a wide array of different sizes, and all of them can impact your room’s renovation. Choose from shorter, more discreet sizes for traditional homes or thicker pieces for a bold statement. The size also depends on the layout of the room you are remodeling. For example, a room with smaller square footage probably shouldn’t have extra thick trim. The proportions would look off, and shrink the perception of the room’s overall size.


Trim can be as simple as a standard board, or as intricate as a piece carved with the tiniest of details. When remodeling your home, you need to decide which is right for you. Many homeowners opt for a style with just a little lip or curve at the top to add texture to the space. However, you can customize yours to fit whatever tastes you have.


We get it, you probably want a traditional white painted finish on your trim. But consider all of your options before committing. A dark wood stain looks great in rustic settings, while black paint can add immense beauty to modern, contemporary homes.

Choosing the right trim for your Kansas City renovation is the perfect way to add a stunning finishing touch that will set your project apart. Need help finding the right trim for your remodel?
