trim for doors that are flush with the wall


I'm not sure how to put trim on the doors i have. the door jambs and flush with the studs of the wall. the old drywall on the wall had a sort of metal quarter round at the end of the drywall that was painted the same as the drywall.

typically the drywall butts up against the door jamb and the trim covers them both??

That metal quarter rount is the metal corner bit. Installed to protect the corner drywall from damage when someone bumps or hits the edge. You don't really need it if the door jamb is there, but if its not in the way leave it.

I don't like making the drywall touch the door jamb, I leave 1/2" to 1' space between the drywall and door jamb, depending on trim moulding width.

Brad Talent got it perfect though. build out the jambs to be flush with the drywall, then trim.
