If you’re thinking about doing any home renovations, don’t forget to include architectural details. Such details are often overlooked by home-owners, but they can add a lot of character and interest to your house, especially if you use them tastefully. Here are 5 must-have architectural details that every homeowner should consider adding to their house.

Crown Molding

Crown Molding adds depth and character to your home. It helps you create a balanced design for the space that is sure to wow any visitor. But don’t stop at just one piece of crown molding, opt for two or three different profiles throughout your living space. By adding multiple lines of crowns, arches and brackets, you can create symmetry between different elements in a room. When creating symmetrical arrangements, be sure to consider all elements – baseboards, window dressings, and even picture frames. All of these things are just as important as other decorative objects like paintings or lamps. The goal is for everything in a room to blend together seamlessly—rather than making objects stand out too much—to create a cohesive whole.

Columns and Pilasters

Nothing says classic design like wood columns and pilasters. They’re not just for creating historical accents, though; they can be used as clever design elements in any home to visually break up a blank wall or room. You can even mix and match different types of wood for an organic, natural look that will play up your sense of style. No matter what you choose, remember that too much repetition is a bad thing. You want your chosen elements to complement each other by breaking up large spaces into smaller ones.

Custom Doors

The first thing most people see when they look at a house is its front door. A custom designed and crafted front door is a perfect way to set a stunning and unforgettable first impression on your guests. Or, if you’re in real-estate, potential buyers or renters. An impressive front door can make all the difference, especially if your home that has few or no interior doors! That beautiful, custom exterior door really becomes central in setting its tone and personality.

Door Casting

Casting around a door can be made of a variety of materials but has only one primary job: defining a separation between rooms and creating an elegant, clean break from one room to another. Highlight a door casting by painting or staining it with a color that pops against its surroundings.

Window Trim

Decorative window trim is more than just a finishing touch. It can help balance out an exterior design, creating a visually pleasing transition between exterior and interior spaces. Even if you don’t have much money or time to invest in a full remodel, window trim and door molding are relatively inexpensive ways to give new life to an older property. Because they’re so common, most people tend not to pay them much attention. But when done right, they can easily become the star of a room.
