In this new, expanded edition of Jay Silber's ground-breaking first book, The New Decorating with Architectural Trimwork focuses on the aesthetic uses of architectural trimwork. There are plenty of books that tell the reader how to install trim around windows and doors, but few that also explain how architectural trim can enhance a room's aesthetic appeal. Silber shows readers even more ideas on how to choose and use a wide variety of moldings, trim, and design concepts to transform the all-too-common sterile, open floor plan into a warm, inviting, richly textured home. This new edition of Trimwork provides ideas for how to decorate homes with trim and wall panels so that walls, passageways, and stairways can radiate the warmth, character, and beauty of the well-trimmed homes of eras gone by.
I am a custom carpenter in the Metro Detroit area, and have a huge library of carpentry and trimwork books that I use for discovering my clients' style and generating ideas for their projects. Of all the books in my library, this is the one I use the most. The cover is getting creased pretty bad, so it is about time to order a new copy or two. This books is one of two that makes the trip to every single one of my new customer meetings. For ideas and photographs, I would give it 7 stars if possible. For the instructions portions, I would probably give it 3 - 4 stars, as they are geared much more to the do it yourselfer, and therefor use homeowner tools, and techniques, some of which I would not recommend. In fact, some of the instructional details are missing very important details that would be hard for a homeowner, that does not do this as a trade, to figure out. I also own the previous edition that has less material. When this edition came out, I grabbed it right away and am very pleased with the added content. My wish for any future editions that may be on the way would be for them to drop the chapters on tools, etc., and just add more design content / photos. I know that I am biased on this topic, but I really wish publishers and retailers would quit pushing the do it yourself concept for many projects, particularly those involving carpentry because the average homeowner really is not up to the task, which results in shoddy work and problems down the line for future homeowners and their contractors. Do what you are good at and get paid for it, then pay a professional to do the rest.
Love this book. I installed picture frame moulding in my dining room as well as base board moulding in my living and dining rooms. Prior to this I had little experience with installing trim work. This book gives easy to follow instructions and tips. A great book for beginners interested in installing beautiful, quality trim work.
The older version of this book was good. This version is much better. The "Elements of Design" chapter is expanded, as is the chapter on crown molding. The most comprehensive chapter for me was Chapter 10: Wainscoting, Pillars and Pilasters. The detail provided on the methods for routing flutes was very helpful.

If you do trim, this is the third book to buy right after "Trim Carpentry Techniques" by Craig Savage, and "Finish Carpentry: Efficient Techniques for Custom Interiors" by Gary Katz.
I am in the planning stage of re-doing a room in our house to a nursery. I've looked at/bought a number of books on trim carpentry, as this is my first time through any of this, and this book turned out to be a valuable purchase. The installation techniques and illustrations are very good, but what really makes this book shine are the pictures -- and there are tons of them. Just flipping through the book will give you lots of ideas of what's possible. 5 stars.
Great photos, lots of information. We haven't had an opportunity to try anything in it yet.
I'm in a middle of a remodel and this book answered a lot of my questions. It's a pleasure just browsing through this book. Richly illustrated and offers lot's of great ideas. Picked up a few good carpentry tips. A good miter saw and this book and the possibilities are endless. Tool tips came in very handy too. Hats off to Jay Silber!
This book has beautiful photo illustrations of many kinds of trim work. We are putting in crown molding and found the diagrams of how trimwork is put together very clear and helpful. There is a section with photos and concise explantions of the tools that you might need and how to make your cuts.
I'm a huge DIY. Therefore please take into account that I'm not a professional contractor that knows all of the ins and outs of trim work. However, I do have more than basic knowledge of interior design and this book definitely meets all expectations. If you are working on updating a home or adding a bit of flair....this is the book for you. Lots of pictures, examples, and easy to follow format.
