Door and window casings can set the mood for an entire room. They are capable of turning the ordinary into the extraordinary, and so-so into so beautiful.
What are door and window casings?
Casings are molding that goes around the perimeter of your doors or windows. They are installed both inside and outside your home. The job of exterior window casings is, first and foremost, to keep the wind, rain, and snow outside where it belongs. Of course exterior window casings also can have a huge impact on the curb appeal of your home.
Inside of your home, door and window casings are usually exclusively for aesthetic purposes.
Door and window casing tips
Door and window casings can define a room, so it is worth spending a bit of time to make sure that you get the right design to fit your home. Follow these window and door casing tips and you’re sure to hit the right note:
- Match the molding: make sure that you take into consideration the molding in the room. This includes crown molding. Your molding doesn’t need to be identical, but it should definitely not clash!
- Take into account the function of the room: having ornate window and door casing on a functional room, or a kid’s bedroom, doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. You want the casing to match the purpose of the room.
Match the mood. More importantly, make sure that your door and window casings match the style of the room, including: the architecture, furniture, colours, and flooring. If you’re looking for great window and door casings, contact Crown Cornice to make your home fit for a king!
