Modern Style Interior Trim

Modern style interior trim adds a clean, eye-catching edge to a room’s overall look. It’s the perfect choice for a wide range of home design ideas, from simple kitchen remodels to full-scale room makeovers. Whether it’s classic wainscoting, board and batten, or more formal wood molding, there are a wide range of interior trim options to accentuate any modern-style home.

The first step in selecting trim and paint colors is determining what overall impression you want the room to convey. Are you looking for a calm, restful space or something that is vibrant and energetic? From there, you can choose a color palette that reflects the tone you want to set.

While white may be a popular choice for interior trim, it’s not the best option for historic homes that feature many natural wood surfaces. Pure white trim will look “fake” in a historic setting and will detract from the beauty of the natural woodwork. A more neutral trim shade like beige or off-white will provide a more authentic and cohesive appearance.

If you’re looking for a bolder choice, consider lilac as a trim color. This sage-like hue pairs beautifully with pink tones and olive greens, and it offers a fresh pop of color that will stand out against a crisp white wall.

Lastly, don’t be afraid to skip the trim altogether and go for a bare window look. Family Handyman editor Joe Cruz used a drywall return method to achieve this look at The Getaway, and the results were stunning. This simple and versatile method is also a great solution for small rooms that need a big visual impact.

In this open concept kitchen, a simple shaker trim style pairs with vertical shiplap and reclaimed oak flooring to create a modern farmhouse aesthetic. The walls are painted in a Swiss Coffee color that complements the wood tones of the trim and reclaimed oak flooring.

Keeping the same trim style and color throughout an entire house is one way to ensure a consistent look. This is especially important for homes with open floor plans where rooms flow seamlessly into each other.

While this may not be an option for all homeowners, it can be a great option for those who love the clean lines and minimalist style of modern design. Keep in mind that a bare window trim will require more frequent cleaning to keep it looking its best, as there isn’t anything to hide dirt and dust. For this reason, it may not be the best idea for families with young children or pets. If you do decide to go without the trim, be sure to use a high-quality, durable product that will hold up to wear and tear.
