For traditional room decor, opt for trim with more curves and details. Larger trim panels with crown moldings and elaborate detail complement traditional decor. Accent country-style decor with square casings or shaker style trim panels. For a more contemporary room, select simple and small trim and casings; alternatively, unpainted wooden trim panels give the room a vintage rustic feel. Buy enough trim to ensure a consistent look through the room.

High-density polyurethane trim is diverse, inexpensive, lightweight and easy to install. Medium-density fiberboard trim is heavier and pre-primed, and its dent-resistant nature makes it last longer. When working with wood trim panels, choose from single-length panels with stain-grade molding, or paint-grade molding with multiple pieces put together. Use latex or acrylic paint to stain the trim panels to complement the room decor. Paint panels in colors such as white, gray, cream and beige or choose a textured polyurethane pattern that blends in with the interior theme.
