The trim around door and windows tremendously influences the appearance and style of the interior of a home. They also fill the gaps and cover up spaces between door and window jambs, along with the wall surfaces and rough framing. Door and window casings are normally installed with a “reveal” amid the rim of the jamb and the casing, usually 1/8-inch. This permits adjustment to take place in case the casing jamb is not entirely straight.
Window and door surrounds, also known as casing and frequently linked together with 45-degree miter joints. Regrettably, door and window frames are not always precisely square. This leads to improperly fitted joints with visible gaps. However, this type of casing predicament can be corrected if measurements are done properly from the beginning.
Casings are the most frequently utilized moldings for doors and windows. They normally differ from base moldings by their rounded outer edge. At times, windows have stool and apron trim pieces, or they might be trimmed out in a modest picture frame design. A number of door openings use Plinth and corner blocks together with casings to develop unique architectural effects. Casings can be rather banal, like the much-loved square-edge or clamshell designs, or, alternatively colonial style molding. The most admired casing joint design is the Mitered picture-frame casing.
A number of traditional styles of both door and window trim, whether exterior or interior, are widespread. Window basics include the casings that go around the top and sides of the window, and the mullion casings that go between separated windows. Previously they were frequently trimmed with stools, a formed wood trim that sets against the base edge of the bottom sash and juts into the room. A more up-to-date method, utilized with alternate windows including new construction, is a window cased without a stool. A casement of some type is then situated at the bottom.
For an added touch of elegance, consider extending your top casing piece past the window or door and ending it with an angled cut. Mixing and matching patterns of casings can often work quite well, too. Using vertically lined strips for the side casings mimics the looks of a column, while an accompanying extended top casing creates an archway effect. The top casing can also feature center blocks on the corners and/or in the middle of the frame.
