Sound advice for the finishing touch

Decorative trim, such as baseboards, moldings, wainscoting, and casings, adds warmth and depth to otherwise sterile rooms. Home Design Details: Architectural Trim provides practical advice and inspiration for wall, ceiling, door, window, stairway, and built-in trim for every room of the home. The relatively low cost to install new trim coupled with the fact that installation requires only a few tools, makes installing trim a popular home improvement job. While many books cover the basics of installing trim, Home Design Details: Architectural Trim goes a step further and explains why popular designs work so effectively, and how to recreate them in your own home. It is the only book on the subject that breaks apart the details of each room in the home and provides specific information on why design decisions were made each step of the way. Each detail is featured in a three-dimensional illustration so the reader can see how each piece of trim or molding was created. Simple step-by-step DIY projects are provided as well as comprehensive information for making the right design decision for any space.
