People who are renovating their homes actually feel happier in their homes. In fact, according to a report by Today’s Homeowner on 2022 renovation trends, 93% reported a better quality of life after finishing their renovations. A simple way many of our clients are making improvements to their homes and truly making it their own is through custom trim carpentry.

However, determining the right home improvement project or custom trim you want to focus on can take time and effort. That’s why we wanted to put together a guide with examples of potential projects to help you take ownership of your space. Read on to learn more about custom trim projects you can try in your home!

The most minor details can make all the difference in crafting the home of your dreams. Something like an accent wall can create a striking focal point in your home, whether you add functional built-in shelving or not. Adding custom accent walls can also make rooms feel larger and make your interior decorating shine.

With trending options like shiplap, board and batten, and geometrical designs, we can help execute your vision for any room in your house. Whether for the bedroom, living room, or even the guest bathroom, we can work closely with you to ensure your accent wall fits your vision and overall home design. It’s a simple project, but focusing on an accent wall can make your home feel truly yours and help you take ownership of your space.

2. Transform Your Ceilings with Coffers, Panels, and Beams

Installation is quick and easy so you can have a fireplace with impact in no time.

In addition to looking great, as cooler weather is on its way, you can make unforgettable new memories around the fireplace.
