1. Interior Trim
The interior trim — molding or millwork used to frame the windows, doors, walls, floors, and even ceilings — serve to define the greater architectural style of a room. A seemingly small and often overlooked detail during a home renovation, the trim you choose is as personal as your stylistic preferences. For wall trim ideas, look through pictures of interior décor and note the trims you favor. Whether you have an idea of the type of skirt and arc you want or you feel overwhelmed choosing among the thousands of available trim options, we recommend consulting experienced builders and designers for professional results tailored to your tastes.
2. Wall Textures
With regard to interiors, texture is typically characterized by the addition of blankets, carpets, soft furnishings among other types of furnishings. For a home remodel, adding texture can transcend home décor through the use of interior wall textures. Bring-to-life your walls and ceilings with textured home details such as vertical or horizontal cladding, exposed brick, or natural timber features. When choosing among available types of wall textures, it’s important to consider how the wall will affect the look and feel of the room and the home as a whole — will the wall be the focal point of the room or a subtle feature that complements other attributes?
3. Window Design
The windows are not just the eyes to the soul — they are also among the most important details that dictate how a room both looks and feels. In addition to selecting the size, shape, and placement of the windows, homeowners are urged to consider the type of glass to best accommodate their home as well as their lifestyle requirements. Our professional design-build company can guide you through the available options for types of house windows (from traditional to modern window design) and help you pick the glass that improves insulation, blocks outdoor noise, or even filters natural sunlight, among other features.

The right ceiling fan can introduce feelings of relaxation and resort-style luxury within a space, making them perfect for lounge areas, outdoor kitchens, and bedrooms. When choosing a fan to include in your renovated space, consider the size, shape, color, and functional fanning ability. Envision how the fan in question might either add-to or take-away-from the rest of the living space. Contact our design-build company for more tips on how to choose home remodeling details.
