Amazing New Trim Styles For A Beautiful Home

Trim styles have come a long way since the days of simple baseboards and crown molding. Today, there are many modern trim styles that can add a unique and stylish touch to any home. In this article, we will explore some of the most popular modern trim styles.


Shiplap has become increasingly popular in recent years, thanks in part to its appearance on popular home renovation shows. This style of trim features overlapping boards that create a horizontal pattern. Shiplap is commonly used on walls, but can also be used on ceilings and as a decorative accent on furniture.

Picture Frame Molding

Picture frame molding is a classic trim style that has been updated for modern times. This style features square or rectangular frames that are attached to the wall, creating a panel effect. Picture frame molding can be used to create an elegant and formal look in a dining room or home office.

Geometric Trim

Geometric trim is a bold and modern choice that can add a lot of personality to a room. This style features geometric shapes like triangles, squares, and hexagons that are used to create a unique pattern on the wall or ceiling. Geometric trim is often painted in contrasting colors to make the pattern pop.


Beadboard is a classic trim style that has been updated for modern times. This style features narrow, vertical panels with a beaded edge that are installed on walls. Beadboard is often used in bathrooms and kitchens, but can also be used in other areas of the home for a charming, cottage-like feel.

Cove Molding

Cove molding is a subtle but elegant trim style that features a concave curve at the top of the molding. This style is often used in rooms with high ceilings, where it can add a touch of sophistication and help to visually lower the ceiling height.

Flat Stock Trim

Flat stock trim is a minimalist style that is popular in modern homes. This style features simple, flat pieces of wood that are installed on the wall or ceiling without any decorative details. Flat stock trim is often painted in a contrasting colour to create a clean and modern look.

Chair Rail Molding

Chair rail molding is a classic trim style that is often used in dining rooms and other formal spaces. This style features a horizontal strip of molding that is installed around the perimeter of the room at chair-height. Chair rail molding can be used to divide the wall into two different colours or materials, creating a visually interesting effect.

In conclusion, modern trim styles have come a long way from the simple baseboards and crown molding of the past. Today, homeowners have a wide range of options to choose from, including shiplap, picture frame molding, geometric trim, bead board, cove molding, flat stock trim, and chair rail molding. These styles can add personality and style to any home, and can be used to create a range of looks from classic and elegant to bold and modern.
