Although many people think of trim as a primarily decorative addition to the walls, floors and ceilings of a home, it can be a practical item as well. Trim is able to cover up unsightly gaps or lines between the wall and the ceiling or the wall and the floor, and it gives a home a more finished and upscale look. If you are thinking of installing trim in a newly-constructed home or a remodeled space, you should get an idea of trim installation costs before moving forward with any project.

Average Cost of Professional Trim Installation

Trying to price the cost of professional trim installation is tricky because of the many different factors that can influence cost. Not all types of trim are the same, and no two rooms are the same size. However, having a general guideline might be able to help when pricing a job or getting quotes from trim installation teams. Generally, you should expect to pay between $1,540 and $2,035 to have professionals install trim in an entire home of moderate size.

Removing Existing Trim

One big cost that many people forget about is removing any existing trim that may exist on the floors, walls or ceilings. In a renovation or remodel, this can be a significant expense that might increase the cost of the project as a whole. However, this is also one area where some DIY action may save you money. Removing existing trim takes far less skill than installing trim, but you do have to be careful not to damage the walls or floors when removing it.

Baseboards vs. Crown Molding

Crown molding is the more detailed, embellished trim used in homes, but it also costs more money to make and install. Baseboards along the floor, on the other hand, are simpler and more affordable. Be sure to consider your budget as well as your individual style when choosing between the various trim options.

Additional Factors Influencing Total Price

Several factors combine to determine the total price of your trim installation project. The size of the space is significant, and so is how intricate the trim will be. In addition, you should keep in mind the material of the trim and the condition of the walls before the project ever begins.
