4 Ways to Elevate your Commercial Doors with Trims and Moldings


29 May 2024



When it comes to commercial spaces, every detail matters.

From the doors to the hardware, each element plays a crucial role in creating a welcoming and professional environment.

One often-overlooked aspect that can make a significant impact is the use of trims and moldings. These subtle additions can elevate the look of your commercial doors and add a touch of sophistication to any space.

It’s why we launched our own specialist division of Select Door called Select Finishes.

Here are four ways to elevate space with the addition trims and moldings.

1. Baseboards

Baseboards are an essential part of any interior design scheme. Not only do they provide a finished look to the bottom of your walls, but they also protect them from damage. Installing baseboards around your space can help create a seamless transition between the door and the surrounding walls, giving the space a cohesive and polished appearance.

2. Door Casing

Door casing, also known as door trim, is the decorative molding that surrounds a door. It adds visual interest and helps frame the doorway, drawing attention to the door itself. Choose door casing that complements the style of your interior space, whether it’s traditional, modern, or somewhere in between.

3. Window Casing

If your area includes windows, don’t forget to consider window casing as well. Like door casing, window casings add architectural interest and frames the windows, enhancing their visual appeal.

Coordinate the style and finish of your window casing with your door casing and baseboard for a cohesive look throughout the space.

4. Hardware

The hardware you choose for your doors can make a big impact on their overall appearance. Opt for high-quality, stylish hardware that complements the trims and moldings you’ve selected. From door handles to hinges to locks, every component makes a difference. Just make sure to choose hardware that not only looks great but also functions well and provides security for your space.

Alternatively, consult with a professional or use online calculators for more accurate estimations based on room dimensions.
