Adding trimwork is a decorating technique that can dramatically change the look of your home. Whether you are building a new house or remodeling an existing home, including trim work and molding in your plans adds character and a level of detail that other decorating techniques cannot match.
Over the years we have seen many different styles of decorating techniques that can dramatically change the look of your home. From Tuscan to Modern, Spanish to Transitional, we have a moulding selection that will work for your unique style. We know that picking each piece of moulding can be challenging. Our friendly and professional staff down at Robinson Trim can help you locate exactly what you are looking for.
Whether you are the do it yourself type or possibly looking to hire someone to come do the installation for you, starting off with what types of mouldings you would like to use can help you make that decision. Beginners will find that smaller trim boards are easier to cut and nail to the walls where as the larger crown and ceiling mouldings can offer a more challenging installation. One trick of the trade that every professional knows is that experience will help with many difficult jobs but having the right tools for the job makes a do-it-yourself trim project easier and improves the final results.
Home stores offer a wide range of mid to upper end tools that can save time and money in the long run. You don’t have to break the bank but don’t plan on purchasing the cheapest tools either. For example, cheap cutting tools won’t hold a sharp edge for very long, and throwaway brushes will litter a finish with bristles. Some stores offer great savings on tools during special times of the year, or try to borrow any tools you can from friends who are able to loan them out.
When in doubt, hire it out! We work with many experienced trim and door installers, and can provide great references for your project if needed.
