Wood Trim

Use this 3-part specification to specify wood trim, for interior and exterior use by UFP Edge. 

What is it?

Wood trim, often referred to as molding or millwork, encompasses a variety of decorative and functional wooden materials.  Used to accentuate and finish the edges, corners, and transitions of architectural features. It ranges from baseboards, door and window casings, to crown moldings and chair rails.  Each serving to frame and define spaces, adding depth, texture, and character to both interiors and exteriors.

The Role in Architectural Design

Aesthetic Enhancement: Wood trim acts as the finishing touch that can elevate a space from simple to sophisticated. By adding architectural interest and elegance, trim work complements the overall design theme. Whether it’s bringing warmth to modern minimalism or highlighting the grandeur of traditional styles.

Functional Benefits: Beyond its decorative appeal, wood trim plays a crucial role in concealing the joints between different surfaces and materials, covering gaps and imperfections that naturally occur in construction. It also protects vulnerable edges from wear and tear, contributing to the durability and longevity of the structure.

Versatility in Application: The adaptability of wood allows for its use in a myriad of architectural styles and settings. From the rustic charm of rough-hewn beams in a country cottage to the sleek lines of painted moldings in a contemporary loft, trim can be customized to fit any aesthetic. Its application isn’t confined to interiors; exterior trim work enhances the facade, framing windows and doors, and defining rooflines, all while providing an additional layer of protection against the elements.

Wood Trim in Interior and Exterior Architectural Applications

Interiors: Inside a building, trim serves as a visual guide, leading the eye through the space and creating a sense of harmony and balance. It can highlight architectural features, define spaces without the need for full walls, and add a level of detail that imbues interiors with a sense of crafted beauty.

Exteriors: On the exterior, trim work is essential in defining the architectural style of a building. It outlines windows and doors, accents the roofline, used to create decorative motifs that add personality and curb appeal. Importantly, exterior trim also functions to seal off crevices that might allow water ingress.  Contributing to the building’s overall weather resistance and structural integrity.
