Facts, tips, and useful advice about U.S. hardwoods and related products including flooring, furniture, cabinetry, and millwork. Walk into any older home and you'll always find a lot of hardwood details - wainscoting, crown moulding, fireplace surrounds, spindled staircases, even chair rails - because decorative trimwork used to be standard in new home construction. But after World War II, builders began reducing the amount of trim, using just enough to cover gaps around windows, door frames and between walls and floors.

Description: Hardwood Information Center
The Hardwood Information Center is the source for information, articles, and tips on U.S. hardwoods and hardwood products. As a result, today's rooms often appear plain and featureless, lacking the warm ornamental details that would otherwise provide architectural character. But they don't have to be plain. Enhance the character of your home by installing or upgrading its trim. It can be as easy as it sounds. Consider some of these cost-effective ways to add hardwood details to your home.
