Overview

Sound advice for the finishing touch

Decorative trim, such as baseboards, moldings, wainscoting, and casings, adds warmth and depth to otherwise sterile rooms. Home Design Details: Architectural Trim provides practical advice and inspiration for wall, ceiling, door, window, stairway, and built-in trim for every room of the home. The relatively low cost to install new trim coupled with the fact that installation requires only a few tools, makes installing trim a popular home improvement job. While many books cover the basics of installing trim, Home Design Details: Architectural Trim goes a step further and explains why popular designs work so effectively, and how to recreate them in your own home. It is the only book on the subject that breaks apart the details of each room in the home and provides specific information on why design decisions were made each step of the way. Each detail is featured in a three-dimensional illustration so the reader can see how each piece of trim or molding was created. Simple step-by-step DIY projects are provided as well as comprehensive information for making the right design decision for any space.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A bit of trim work can dress up a room, affect a period style, or better define space. Berry (Architectural Hardware) here defines trim types and period styles with very glamorous room shots, pinpointing specific elements. While some installation instruction is given, it is very cursory. For better instruction, see Neal Barrett's Ultimate Guide to Trim Carpentry. Berry's polished and beautiful book is meant to inspire more than to instruct. Recommended for larger collections. —Library Journal, June 1, 2007
