Want to dress up your home with something that’s inexpensive, long lasting, requires virtually no maintenance, and can add value? Decorative vinyl trim, moulding & décor products might be the answer.
Whether it’s baseboards, door and window casings, crown moulding, columns or a decorative design of your own choosing, vinyl products can add a finishing touch that makes a home look complete.
Both interior and exterior vinyl products are available in a wide array of styles ranging from sleek and simple to ornate and elaborate. While your choices should always be dictated by your personal style and the style of the home, remember that simple and classic will always offer the best return on investment.
I’ve said it before – one of the best ways to ensure your house looks top notch at all times is to use exterior materials that always look good, no matter what the time of year, and no matter what the elements may inflict on them. Vinyl trim and moulding can be a great option. When it comes to types you’ve got shutters, mounts and vents, surrounds and mouldings, trim board, columns, railings, and decorative sheet stock – all of which can dress up your house and positively impact your curb appeal (not to mention they can help insulate and protect your home from the elements). You always need to keep the style of the neighbourhood in mind, but by adding or upgrading trim to windows, eaves and doorways you can make your house the focal point of the street.
There are also a variety of low-maintenance, long lasting vinyl trim and moulding products that can enhance and add value to interiors. These include baseboards, door and window casings, crown moulding, trim and columns. These types of vinyl products add a stately and elegant quality that finishes off a room and gives it a “decorator” finish. But keep in mind that these finishings aren’t solely decorative. Door and window casings can help keep out drafts from the outdoors, as can baseboards as they help to block gaps where the floors and walls meet.
While people tend to think of going with vinyl when they replace utilitarian items like windows or plumbing, the options for high-quality and value-adding decorative vinyl products have skyrocketed in the past decade, and trim and moulding is one of the categories where beautiful and stylish options are now available. Some of the advantages include:
