Wood Casing: Window Treatment
Casing is the name given to the moulding used around windows and doors. Its job is not only to be decorative, but also to hide the seam between the drywall and and door or window jamb. Window mouldings can be installed in a number of ways to fit your decorators touch, and typically the casing around your doorways is done in a fashion to match.
Baseboards as the name suggests are used around the "base" of the room to hide the bottom seam of the drywall and the gap between the flooring material and the wall. For many flooring products, like hardwood flooring where it is critical that it be installed away from the wall to allow for seasonal expansion, the thickness of the baseboard becomes an essential piece of information, to be determine if it is going to be thick enough to hide the required expansion space.
If you're looking for a trim around the ceiling, around the top of your kitchen cabinets or to complete the top of a newly build wall unit, it is typically a crown moulding you are looking for.
