Every Room Tells a Story if You Set the Stage

Lifestyles - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 2:42pm
Five words or less

(NewsUSA) - Remember the last time you walked into a professionally designed home and marveled at its beauty? Chances are, the designer carefully planned the interior finishings -- like crown mouldings and interior doors. While trim and doors have a major impact on interior décor, few homeowners select them with the same care as their furnishings or paint.

Interior finishings are decorative interior products that create the look, feel and flow of design throughout your home. They include trim, interior doors, wall treatments, chair rails, ceiling treatments and mantels -- and they all significantly impact the design of a room. Because these products are critical to a room's design, you will notice their use in many movies or TV series, where sets are carefully designed using trim and doors -- setting the stage for dramatic stories to unfold. It's almost impossible, for example, to imagine "The Great Gatsby" or "Sex and the City" filmed with bare walls behind them. Designers know that it's trim and doors that create the character of a home.

In addition to making a space look professionally styled and creating character, these architectural elements are also functional. Interior finishings can make walls seem taller, hide seams between windows and walls and conceal flaws. When incorporated into plans early in the design process they can also help save money. The richness of finishings used on walls, ceilings and doors lessens the need to fill a room with furniture and accessories.

However, in the past, finding the right interior finishings was often difficult and uninspiring for homeowners, builders and designers. That is, until recently.

"Gone are the days of rummaging through a chaotic selection of trim and doors," says Jan Rutgers, who led the design of Metrie's (www.metrie.com) unique Then & Now Finishing Collections.

According to Rutgers, the Metrie collections of coordinated and professionally designed trim and interior doors take the guesswork out of selecting finishings. Metrie's collections are designed to blend with today's home décor styles, are sized to fit together with ease and are coordinated so that trim and doors are harmonized in design and detailing.

"Now interior finishing can be a simple three-step process: First, choose a Metrie collection that matches your style. Then select the elements you want. Finally, add personal touches like stains, paints or finishes for a cohesive, professional look and feel. In other words, finish before you start," says Rutgers.

For inspiration and design ideas, Metrie has created a library for each collection at Metrie.com/inspired-living.
