When you think about moulding, what color comes to mind? I bet it’s a classic, clean white. White is one of the most popular colors for moulding, and that’s why we chose it for Finished Elegance, Woodgrain’s premier interior moulding line that is easy to install and requires no painting.

If your moulding is white, you can select a color for your walls, or even ceiling, that creates a unique space. Are you painting the walls in a room with Finished Elegance already installed? Because of its unique coating, you can easily wipe any mistakes or spills on Finished Elegance right off!

Below are some examples of beautiful, stand-out rooms where the moulding and color really make an impact. Which one is your favorite?

Pinewold Cottage, Portland, Maine

The combination of moulding styles in this room makes the ceilings feel taller while simultaneously creating a cozy feel.

Casual Elegance Master Bedroom, New York

This room’s designer chose an understated blue for the wall color that emphasizes the dramatic white moulding beautifully.

Sonoma House, San Francisco, California

This designer utilizes different shades of tiger-eye to create a monochromatic color scheme that showcases moulding throughout the home.

If you want to experiment with bold color without painting an entire room, consider an accent. For inspiration, check out this blue strip between moulding in this cheerful dining room.

Remember, your ceiling can make an impact as well. This room showcases neutral walls, white moulding, and a deep blue ceiling for a contemporary feel.

While classic styles will always remain popular, each year brings new trends in interior door preferences. These are the popular styles we’re seeing so far this year:

Sleek and modern. With minimalism gaining more and more ground, many people are turning to strong, functional materials, especially for common rooms and home offices. Primed shaker and flat panel doors will continue to be a popular design option.

Bold neutrals. Crisp white is a timeless look for most interior styles, but adding colors like grey, espresso, or black creates beautiful contrast for natural wood accents and flooring. With design options ranging from 1-panel to 6-panel, Woodgrain shaker doors offer a variety of choices that will look good in virtually any color.

Clean lines. This year, less is more when it comes to door styles. The trend toward a modern look means staying away from ornate details. Think minimal and stick to simple designs.

At Woodgrain, we’re always expanding our product offerings to reflect innovative and current styles. This year, we’re adding 40 new door designs, and 7 of those belong to the new Barn Door Collection. This collection is one of my favorites because it’s so versatile. If you’re considering adding a barn door to your home, I hope the questions and answers below help you make the decision.

What inspired Woodgrain to create the new Barn Door Collection?

We’ve seen barn doors emerge as an interior design trend, and it’s one we think has staying power. Barn doors make a wonderful functional accent piece for a wide variety of rooms – from closets to kitchens to bedrooms and more, there are so many possibilities. Any door on a rail can technically be considered a barn door and the style extends beyond the classic rustic look. Barn doors complement modern, industrial, and traditional interiors as well.

American Craftsman homes originated in the early 1900’s with the works of two prolific architects in Pasadena, CA. Charles and Henry Greene were influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement in England, and similarly worked to promote the fine touch of craftsmen in making a house into a home. From California, this home style spread throughout the country into the 1920’s.

These days, the term Craftsman is commonly used to describe a home that expresses Arts and Crafts aesthetics. This particular building style is best identified through its architecture and interior design. A popular form of the Craftsman style is found in a bungalow.

On the exterior, Craftsman homes typically showcase intricate millwork and great attention to detail. Many homes have low-pitched roofs, single dormer windows, tapered columns, exposed beams, decorative supports, multi-pane windows and large front porches. Interior touches include an open floor plan, natural materials, built-ins, and wide window and door casing.

Whether you currently own a Craftsman home or simply appreciate the delicate architectural detail, you can embrace similar stylistic choices with a simple DIY project. This Craftsman door casing tutorial outlines how to frame an interior door for a sleek, simple finish using 1″ X 4″, 3/4″ X 2″ and 1/2″ X 2″ boards. With only five S-4-S boards, you can frame a door to insert instant character and charm into your home.
