No different than flooring options or cabinety packages, a home’s design style will also play a huge factor in which moulding and trim profiles and colors to use in each room. Whether your aesthetic is minimalist, sophisticated, farm house, or historic, the wide variety of decorative, polystyrene prefinished moulding options from Inteplast offers quality craftsmanship with the workability of real wood. Here are three different recommendations compiled from current trends to help you make some moulding design decisions.
A design aesthetic synonymous with a modern style is tone-on-tone coloring that uses a single color, or pairs different hues of the same color. When it comes to layering moulding colors with the rest of the colors in a room, designers suggest pairing warm wall colors with warm moulding colors if you don’t want to outright paint your moulding the same color. For example, use our Amber, Independence Cherry, or Russet profiles with rich autumnal colors like reds, yellows, and oranges. Or pastel versions of those. If your wall colors are cool shades of blues or other calming pastels, use Crystal White trim. Using the same color scheme creates the illusion of a larger room, while uniting it.
With a classic design scheme, you can break all of the rules and still create a stunning room. When we think of Farmhouse or Cottage interior styles, most of us see white moulding with a sunny yellow wall color. While white is the most often used moulding and trim color for a classic or traditional style, the wall color can vary greatly. Whether neutrals, warm tones, jewel tones, or dark earthy colors, Inteplast’s Crystal White moulding goes with them all to create a classic connection from room to room.
An eclectic taste could apply to all types of home design styles, from contemporary to historic. It all comes down to dark trim colors. To really show-off up-to-the-minute wall colors of soft blues and greens, pair with our Espresso, Auburn, or Whiskey Maple moulding. Darker trim colors add more depth and dimension than classic whites or other light colors in maple and oak.
