Inspiration Gallery: Interior Moulding for Every Home Style

From crown to casing to wainscoting, endless options for interior moulding mean architecture and building pros can meet the needs of nearly any project. One of the most important things to consider when narrowing down the options is how interior trim will complement and enhance the home’s overall style and carry it from room to room.

Here are a few examples of how to coordinate trim with popular architectural styles to ensure harmony and cohesiveness.

Craftsman Interior Moulding Styles

The Craftsman home style is often described as “honest,” as in the happy result of a satisfying day of hard work. Therefore, look to simple, tailored, and purposeful door trim and minimally ornamented window casings. Using white, light beige, and cream-colored crown moulding will help create a roomier feel.

Colonial Interior Moulding Styles

Colonial homes combine rustic simplicity and rich detail, with symmetry and confident formality at the forefront. This calls for interior trim that lends a touch of stately courtliness to each room, including multi-piece trim and wider baseboards, wainscoting, and crown moulding.

Cape Cod Interior Moulding Styles

Cape Codes boast a practical, quaintly unassuming design best accented by interior trim that adorns subtly. These might include casings for double-hung windows, picture rails, and frame walls. In the kitchen and dining area, white ceilings and cabinet moulding against soothing grays and warm blues create an inviting and timeless combination.

Modern Interior Moulding Styles

Clean and sleek, Modern homes call for similarly crisp and unassuming interior trim, such as unadorned window and door casings, baseboards, or simply using trim to protect walls and floors from scuff marks and handprints. Or, make a neutral-colored room more interesting with a contrasting (but complementary) door, floor, and window trim color, such as light mocha accents over cream-colored walls.

Ranch Moulding Styles

Ranch homes are open, informal, and inviting. Trim should help maintain a relaxed feel that flows from room to room or area to area. Ranch style lends versatility, with everything from simple baseboards to more formal window and cabinetry trim in the kitchen, fireplace mantels in the family room, and passageway casings.

Modern Farmhouse Moulding Styles

Humble practicality and clean lines combine for this in-demand traditional-meets-contemporary style. Look to transitional trim options—simple with someedge or flair—as well as shiplap and nickel gap beadboard trim, particularly for kitchens, accent walls, entryways, and mudrooms.
