Trim a Room with Molding
Molding  is a beautiful finishing touch for a room, adding depth and distinction. A range of profiles are available to tie into any style from Victorian to contemporary, and can be applied as crown molding , chair rails , detailed baseboards, and even as on-the-wall frames to set off a collection of art or photos. Basic carpentry skills are needed to properly cut, fit, and install most molding, although product innovations in the synthetic realm are making it possible to literally snap on a new look without complicated cuts.
Molding is available in the following configurations, at varying price points:
Cover It with Wainscoting
Another great surface accessory is wainscoting , which lends texture, definition, and variety to walls. Wood paneling  and built-from-scratch systems are probably the most traditional means of achieving wainscoting effects, but a number of synthetic solutions made of cellular PVC and other maintenance-free materials are available to instantly create a classic look that can stand up to moisture, offer easy care, and be customized with paint and stain. Cap it all off with a decorative trim molding or a combination of a few, and finish the base edge with quarter-round molding for a craftsman’s touch.
