Our Comprehensive Guide to Interior Window Casings

When purchasing new house windows, many homeowners give deep thought to number of panes, brand, and style.  However, an often-ignored component of home window replacement is the window casing.  While it’s one of the lesser discussed components of a window project, the casing you select matters.  Here’s what you need to know.


What is a window casing?  A window casing is the molding that surrounds the window.  Outdoors, their purpose is to curtail cold exterior air from entering the home.  Indoors, window casings are the final step in the window installation process.  Their function is to create a completed look and tie into the rest of the room.

Types of Window Casing:

Traditional Window Casing: Classical in style, traditional window casings are simple and are most frequently found in historic homes.  They lay flush with the window.  In most instances, they have uncomplicated stool and apron patterns that enrich time-honored design with a smidgen of elegance.

Low-Profile Window Casing: The intent of low-profile window casing is to be functional, rather than lavish.  Their purpose it to protect rather than draw attention away from your home’s ambiance, creating a scenario where windows blend into your home’s surroundings.

Modern Window Casing: Modern window casings are manufactured to commingle with adjacent architecture, rather than be a focal point of a room.  They have refined lines and oftentimes match the hue of the material neighboring the window.  The intent of modern window casings is to blend in with the glass and take attention away from outdoor views.  In the realm of modern window casings intricacy and ornateness are shunned and precision are embraced.

Complete Window Casing: Moldings that encompass all four sides of your windows are frequently referred to as complete casing.  This can include singular and multiple layers, depending on the homeowner’s personal taste.  Do note that stacked moldings are eye-catching.  Regardless of the option chosen, complete window casings are intended to complement other moldings in that area.

"Thank you Lindus Construction, our new 2020 bay window and Infinity from Marvin® windows throughout the rest of our home. They look superb. Thank you for your quality work!"

"Although Lindus was not the lowest bid, because of their excellent ratings on Angie's List we selected them to do the project. Removing 14 double hung wood windows and two large bay windows (including frames & interior trim), cutting back the exterior siding slightly, replacing with Infinity® from Marvin units and installing new interior trim was a four day project for the crew of three. It is doggone rare to find a company that takes this kind of pride in their work any more, but Lindus definitely does. Would we recommend them? We already have. With pleasure."
