Trim & Molding Meet at 90 degree wall


Hi,

Quick molding question...

I have 2 doors on different walls which are at 90 degrees to each other. Both doors are fairly close to the same corner and will not be able to accomodate a full piece of trim on the sides that meet in the corner. The question is - Should I:

[a] install a full width piece of trim on one door and rip the other piece of trim to fit in the remaining space

[b] cut both pieces along the full length at a 45 degree angle so they form a right angle and meet flush

Thanks guys,

What type of trim? Profile or flat?
Are the doors equal distance from the corner?

If you put one in full and rip the other will it sit flush or is it up against a profile?
Painted grade or stained?

Typically,I will miter that type of corner.
Better hope the doors are installed with the tops at the same heights.

No matter if you 45 the backside or do not, the trim will still meet together at the same spot on the front edge so you could put in one piece and then rip and butt the next to it and then calk and paint...
