Help with asymmetric doorways (moulding)

838 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  joecaption
Attached is a picture (strangely rotated) of my problematic doorway. We are refinishing a living room, and there is also a normal doorway on the same wall. The three options we are evaluating for moulding are 1.) Simple mitered casing, 2.) Rosettes, 3.) A capital. On the full doorway, we are fans of the capital, but don't know if that would look ridiculous with one side ending flat against the perpendicular wall. Any advice?

Are you talking about the actual door or the opening on the green wall? if the green wall, I would go for option #4, leave it as is.

As far as ending the molding against a wall, it looks wonky. Here is a pic from my bathroom I am redoing. It will looks less ridiculous when it is painted.

IMO, to make it look not crazy, you'll have to build out what is the right side in the picture a bit to accept some casing on the right side. Therefore, loosing some of the doorway.
