Trim molding is a type of wooden or plastic material used to accentuate and finish the look of a room. Typically, trim molding is used to decorate areas such as doorways, windows, cabinets, ceilings, and floors. The molding is thin and narrow, and it may have various cuts or curves to suit different styles of decor. Some trim moldings are also designed to conceal gaps or cover inconsistencies in a room’s construction. Wood trim moldings can be painted or stained to match the room’s decor, while plastic polymer moldings can be cut and painted to fit the desired style. Though plastic polymer trim molding is more expensive than wood, it is often lighter and easier to handle.
