Smooth Transition

Door casings are both decorative and utilitarian, enhancing the look of the door while also concealing the transition between the wall and the jamb. Victorian-era designs from the late 1800s were often made from fluted boards butted up against corner blocks, which were either plain or had carved details. These casings were symmetrical, meaning that the boards were the same thickness on the inside edge as the outside, with a uniform pattern across their faces.
