Conclusion

With the multifamily residential housing market booming to provide affordable, modern dwellings for both the baby boomer and millennial generations, building professionals and interior designers have to think out of the box when it comes to interiors. Extruded aluminum trim profiles can be used to achieve modern design goals all while protecting interior drywall surfaces from the wear and tear of rental and high turnover properties such as condominiums.
