The best part of building a custom home is choosing the personal touches that make it unique to you and your family. At KRM Custom Homes, we work with you to make interior choices that not only fit your budget but also compliment your tastes and lifestyle.

Throughout the building experience, you’ll collaborate with our team as well as a trim carpenter to finalize layout, interior design, and more. As the process comes to an end, one of the final steps is a trim walk. During a trim walk, we’ll make sure that every vision you have on paper comes to life in each room of your new home, from your kitchen to your closets. We’ll review size, layout, and wood species to make sure that all the trim details are correct, and everything is placed exactly where you want it.

This is also a great opportunity to add or subtract features as desired. During a trim walk you may decide that you need to add additional shelving or remove unwanted elements. Continue reading to learn about some of the custom home features our team reviews with clients during trim walks.

Features to Review During Your Trim Walk


During your trim walk, we verify the wood species and mantle height of your new home’s fireplace. Depending on your style and preferences, this is also a great time to discuss other woodworked pieces in the great room such as floor-to-ceiling shiplap, floating shelving, or built-ins. These additional details can add a great deal of character to a space and help you make your new house a home.


We know how important storage is in your pantry. As part of your trim walk, we’ll decide on the length and height of the pantry cabinets and add any additional storage you feel necessary.


Mudrooms are small spaces that can have a big impact on your day-to-day life. During your trim walk, we finalize elements including finishes like shiplap, benches, storage cubbies, and even sconce placement.

Master Bathroom

Add an extra sense of luxury to your master bathroom with floor-to-ceiling shelving. We’ll verify shelf placement with you during your trim walk to ensure that your new bathroom has plenty of storage space.

Master Bedroom

Trim details can help a master bedroom pop. From patterned tray ceilings to barn doors to trim detailing around windows, our team will work with you to determine the perfect accents for the style and layout of your custom home.


Your home bar should be the perfect place to grab a drink and have a good time. Adding lit shelves, wall tile, and wrapped pillars is a great way to add visual interest to this area of your home.

Theatre Room

In-home theatre rooms need an atmosphere that’s warm and inviting. During your trim walk, we can review and discuss additional options like trim details, wainscotting, built-in shelving, and dimmable sconce lighting that can help give the space a traditional movie theater feel.
