# Trim

### Cleaning up the edges.

Trim will be placed around the edges of the room to help blend the wall and the carpet together. Be sure to pay close attention to the information give when buying trim. You don't want to waste money and buy too much.

1. Determine the perimeter of the bottom of the room (where the wall and carpet meet).

2. You are also going to use trim around the windows and door. So add their perimeters to the perimeter of the room.

3. You will need to do something with the perimeter for the door and the perimeter of the room. You will need to do some subtraction. Explain what needs to be subtracted and why.

4. Determine how many sets of trim you will need to purchase. Again pay close attention to the details. How much will the trim cost you?
