Whether you want to apply crown molding, chair rail, or baseboard, you can easily customize these elements with a paint color, wood finish, or other textures.

Step 1: Accessing the Wall Editor

  1. Select the Wall:

    • Click on any wall in your 3D room design to begin.

  2. Open the Wall Editor:

    • After selecting the wall, a tooltip will appear. Click on the edit icon to enter the wall editor.

    • Here, you can add paint colors to the wall and manage trim elements.

Step 2: Adding and Customizing Crown Molding

  1. Select Crown Molding:

    • In the wall editor, click on the "Trim" option in the right-side panel.

    • You will see options for crown molding, baseboard, and chair rail. Select "Crown Molding."

  2. Apply Crown Molding:

    • Choose the desired crown molding option. It will appear as a basic rectangular shape in the editor but will show detailed relief in 3D mode.

  3. Adjust Dimensions:

    • Adjust the height and depth of the crown molding as needed.

  4. Change Texture:

    • Click on the edit icon next to the texture option to open the texture library.

    • Choose from a variety of textures. For a wood finish, select a wood texture from the library.

      Apply the selected texture to the crown molding.

  5. Rotate Texture (if needed):

    • If the wood texture grain is not aligned as desired, use the rotation tool in the right-side panel to rotate the texture. For instance, if it's aligned vertically, you can rotate 90° to have it aligned horizontally.

Step 3: Adding and Customizing Baseboard

  1. Select Baseboard:

    • In the trim options, select "Baseboard."

  2. Apply Baseboard:

    • Choose the desired baseboard option and adjust the height and depth as needed.

  3. Match Crown Molding Texture:

    • To match the crown molding texture, use the "Recents" folder in the texture library to quickly find and apply the same wood texture.

  4. Rotate Texture (if needed):

    • Use the rotation tool to align the wood grain texture as desired.

Step 4: Applying Trim to All Walls

  1. Duplicate Trim Settings:

    • Use the duplicate tool in the tooltip to apply the customized trim settings to all walls in the room.

    • Click on any wall and apply the texture to the entire room.

Additional Options: Customizing Chair Rail

  1. Select Chair Rail:

    • In the trim options, select "Chair Rail."

  2. Apply Chair Rail:

    • Choose the desired chair rail option and customize it using the steps outlined for crown molding and baseboard.
