window trim

Post by greg1 » Mon Aug 05, 2019 1:26 pm

I just put in new window and now dont know how to finish trim inside. Do i need to build a box to fill inside gap between window and drywall?

i tried adding couple pics but seems there is error-"It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image. Please verify that the URL you entered is correct."

Yeah, that's how it looks to me, you'll want to find flat trim moulding to dress up the exposed cavity that it's in, and then you can put standard trim casing around the window after that. Should look like a normal finished window when you're done.

The most common thing in these parts is drywall on sides and top of window opening that is taped in place like any other outside corner. The bottom then gets a wood sill. Alternatively, and more popular in the east, is a wood wrap inside the window opening followed by face trim around the opening.

Personal style and tastes will be what drives your decision, neither is better or worse than the other, it's simply two different methods of finishing off the opening. 8-)

For the average DIYer the wood frame and casing is easier. No drywall corner bead to finish.
