Moulding isn't something that you absolutely need to have on your windows but it can definitely be a nice decorative touch that also adds dimension to your room.
In this post, I’m showing you some beautiful interior window trim inspiration and giving you a quick run-down on the meanings of these “trim” words.
Moulding, trim, and casing–builders and remodelers generally used these terms interchangeably so if you are doing some research or looking for some inspiration don’t let all the lingo confuse you.
Moulding - Material used to create transitions between different surfaces, usually a decorative element; often spelled as “molding”
Trim - Trim really means to make something neat usually by cutting, it also means to decorate, it’s commonly used as a synonym for moulding
Casing - Casing is a type of moulding used to trim windows and doors; the term distinguishes it from other styles of moulding used to trim walls, floors, and ceilings

There are lots of options when it comes to the trim around your windows and doors. You can go with something very traditional in a white, if your home has more of a rustic feel you can do something a little more rustic, or you go bold with wide or colorful trim.
One more note before you get lost in inspiration: Window manufacturers and window dealers often treat window casing as an optional feature so when you are purchasing new or replacement windows make sure to ask if trim/casing is included in your purchase.
Window manufacturers usually make trim as well and it's a good option if you want a trim to match the material and color or stain of your windows. Homeowners can also DIY this type of project but we prefer if you leave it up to the pros (your window technicians have lots of experience installing and building trim).
Classic styles are described as timeless and simple. If you want to keep a minimalist and neutral styling for your window trim, then this is the style to go.
Most people opt for classic-styled window trims since windows only get replaced every 20 years or so. So, most people prefer to just keep it simple.
Classic style colors include all neutral tones, like beige, cream, white, and gray.
Rustic styles feature a lot of natural tones and textures. Signature rustic pieces usually include natural elements, like cowhide, natural lighting, and of course, plenty of wood.
Another signature trait of the rustic style is embracing imperfection, as a lot of rustic-styled things have rougher, natural shapes and edges.
Rustic style colors include shades of brown, greens, and grays.
Bold design choices are a bit rare since they're usually a bit harder to pull off. However, when done correctly, bold styles can really help your home stand out and make it yours.
