Choosing the Right Interior Trims for Your Windows

Window trims are like the finishing touches that go around the window frames. They come in different casings with a wide variety of designs, but they all offer essentially the same kind of protection, or prevent hot or cold air from entering the home’s interior. But that doesn’t mean you should go with just any interior casing for your windows. As a reputable company that offers excellent window replacement service, we’re sharing you a few tips you’d want to consider.

Choosing the Right Interior Trims for Your Windows


Traditional Casing

This type of casing is pretty simple in design. They’re mostly suited to older homes since they lay flat against the exterior and interior walls. The casing is usually made of a single layer of composite material or wood with a simple stool molding that’s supported by an apron along the bottom side of a window. What you get is a more decorative or a fluted column design, depending on your preference.

Contemporary Casing

Contemporary or modern casing features a cleaner design that usually matches the color of the wood or other material of the rest of the window. When it comes to our house window replacement service, we usually recommend options for modern casing if you want your home to blend in rather than stand out. This is because the glass is the focal point in the design of this type window instead of the trim and moldings.

High-Profile Casing

Here at Renewal by Andersen®, we offer several options for this type of casing. High-profile casing can either sit as a pediment above the window or surround the entire window. We include plastic and composite options that offer the distinct look of a carved molding but are more readily available. We recommend this type of casing if you want to beef up your windows with a classical or historical style.

Low-Profile Casing

Go for this type of casing if you’re looking for something more utilitarian than decorative. Similar to traditional casing, this also lays flat against the siding of your home and interior walls. This gives it that finished look that really helps tie the visual appeal of the windows together with your home. And, like most casings, it can also block hot and cold air from entering your home while keeping the interiors at a comfortable temperature.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
