|Windsor One Trim Profiles (some of them)|
The New House Next Door is a traditional design, and the folks who will live in it have tastes that are traditional, so I wanted to use traditional trim-work where I could. In addition, the house is small and because of that I wanted every detail to look beautiful.
The base is a tall 7 1/4" and the casing (around windows and doors) is a built-up 3 piece molding with a beaded casing and an ogee back band. We are not so formal to be using crown molding, but are using bead-board wainscotting below a chair-rail in the bathrooms.
All this interior design and detail underscores that the house is quality built, and even can make it feel "established" (I don't want to say old) - like older homes with fine craftsmanship, trim-work and built-ins.
