We recently published a post all about crown molding you know, the trim installed along the top of walls to add decoration and, not incidentally, hide the often messy line where walls meet ceiling (see Remodeling 101: What Is Crown Molding? Plus, What You Need to Know).
We still had lots more questions about moldings, so we went back to architect James Dixon, a self professed “moldings fan” who specializes in restoring Manhattan apartments and building and renovating country houses (he’s also a member of the Remodelista Architect & Designer Directory). This time we’re tackling door and window casings, the trim around interior doors and windows. Read on for a quick guide, whether you’re remodeling or building new.
