How to Refurbish or Update your Wall Trim Molding

Wall trim molding is a beautiful feature in any home, but it can become worn and damaged over the years. Here are some wall trim molding ideas to help bring your home back to its best!

Clean Away the Old to Get Ready for the New! 

You’ll be amazed at what a good clean can do for your wall trim. If you have wooden trim, simply soften old paint along the edges of the trim using alcohol, and use a putty knife wrapped in a rag to scrub away at the trim. This will also remove any old grease, grime and dust.

If you have shellac, alcohol can damage the surface, so rather use a gentle cleaning liquid recommended for shellac.

Replace What’s Beyond Repair 

While some little knocks and scratches can be easily sanded out by hand using sandpaper, some parts of your trim might be beyond repair – but that doesn’t mean it should all come down! Some companies, like Kuehn Bevel, specialize in making trim to order, and can create a custom product that will fit seamlessly into place. It’s also a great way to add trim into a room that hasn’t been finished and keep a great look going through your home.

Pick your Color

Modern interior decorating is about creating your own personal style in your home, but there are some things to keep in mind that may help you get the result you’re looking for. Using your natural wood’s color is perfectly acceptable, and it doesn’t need to be painted. If you do want to paint it, white and off-white colors will look striking with any décor. Neutral tones are also a good choice, especially if you are going for a strong contrast. If you want something more adventurous, it’s best to then choose a more subdued wall paint color to ensure the contrast is properly appreciated.

Pick your Finish 

Trim can catch the dust, so it’s important that it’s easy to clean, which is why we recommend a semi-gloss interior paint that is washable and durable.

Where to Add Wall Trim Molding in Your Home

A big part of making a house into a home is adding your own personal touches. Wall trim molding could be just what you need! Here are some of our top wall trim molding ideas for homes, whether you have a modern, classic or eclectic look:

A mirror or photograph wall:

Blocking off a section of your wall for photographs or mirrors can be a challenge, especially when you want them to really make an attractive focal point. Wall trim molding can be used as a frame for this project, drawing the eye toward your special items. This is especially effective on larger walls where items can look lost on a large, plain space.

Statement wall alternative:

Creating a statement wall is a great way to add visual interest and create a focal point in your room. Rather than using paint or wallpaper, wall trim molding can be used to create a visually interesting and textured finish. And you don’t have to stick to traditional patterns – it’s easy to use wall trim to create strong geometric shapes and modern designs.

Bring the outdoors inside:

Love the classic country look and want to connect your garden to your home? Try creating wainscoting in the same design as your garden trellising for a fresh and fanciful look.

Blackboards:

Designing your child’s play room? Blackboards are fun to play with and encourage your child’s creative side. And they’re also easy to clean! Simply frame your chosen area in wall trim molding and paint the inside with blackboard paint for an easy design feature your child will love.

Seaside home:

If you love living by the seaside – or simply wish you were there – then you can use wall trim molding to add coastal appeal to your home. Millwork painted in fresh, traditional colors is an attractive addition to bedrooms, bathrooms, and even kitchens.

The best ideas for your wall trim molding

Wall trim is the ultimate accessory for your home, adding a classic, creative touch that perfectly personalizes your space. Here are some great wall trim molding ideas for adding to any room in your home, from the kitchen to the bedroom.

  • Bottom ¼ of the wall: This is a classic way of adding trim to a wall. It adds a perfect divide for adding a second color to a wall, and adds immediate visual interest to a plain space. To keep this look balanced, match it up with your baseboards and add it throughout the room rather than on a single feature wall.
  • Paneling: A beautiful feature often seen in turn of the century character homes, wood paneling is timeless and eye-catching. Wall trim can be used to create the panel’s borders, while paint and additional trim can be used for filling it in and adding unique design touches.
  • Highlight built in features: If you have a room with built-in bookcases, a fireplace or any other specific feature, wall trim is a great and inexpensive way to highlight this feature and add visual impact. Choose a trim that matches the overall design you want to achieve, and think out of the box when it comes to size, shape and color for that extra personal touch.
  • Finishing your wainscoting: For a beachy, country feel, nothing compares to classic wainscoting. Wall trim will perfectly edge this off and add that essential finishing touch. One great idea is to edge it in a chunky, more visually dramatic wall trim in the same color as the wainscoting, and then use a more delicate trim ¾ up the wall to create a second divide to balance the design.
  • Modern doorway trim: Wall moldings may seem old-fashioned, but it’s all about how you use them. Delicate, elegant designs add visual interest to modern homes by drawing the eye towards great features. Using a similar design to your cornices, you can frame room entrances simply and effectively.
