Second only to color (paint) and pattern (wallpaper), architectural trim is a way to make any room (or exterior) truly unique. From the application of simple crown/cornice molding and baseboard to going all-out with chair rail, wainscot panels, corner blocks and brackets, trim makes a statement no other decorative element can quite achieve.

But its purpose is more than decoration; it has the function of finishing off the meeting lines of wall and ceiling, wall and floor, and wall and door or window. Modern building materials and methods have largely taken away the absolute need for architectural trims, so you may not see them in a more contemporary space. However, it is often this missing element that causes someone to feel a space is lacking “character” or “charm,” so adding these details – even if they are not really needed – is very popular.

Adding miniature dollhouse fabric and trim is one of the final steps in finishing a room. It should be installed after all the main surface finishes (ceiling, walls, floor) are complete, and the actual trim should be painted or stained first. You will need a miter box and fine-tooth saw, and a good bit more prepared trim material than just the measured length. Cutting mitered corners causes some waste, and can be tricky to do correctly, especially with crown and baseboard moldings.

To cut crown molding, especially, the pros say to think of the bottom of the miter box as the ceiling, and to envision the room upside down. This makes it easier to mark the angles correctly for accurate cuts. If you are trimming a room with three walls and an open side, cut and fit the back piece first, then the inside corners of the side pieces. Last, cut the side pieces to length. That way you have extra length in case the corner cuts aren’t perfect the first time.
