How do you hang trim around a door?

Nail the head moulding piece to the door jamb with trim nails. Use 3d or 4d nails every 12 inches along the bottom, and 6d or 8d nails along the top of the moulding piece. Tip: To prevent splitting during this step, avoid nailing 1/4 inch from the side edges and an inch from the edge of the moulding.

Does door trim go to the floor?

Baseboards and door casings have similar installation methods. It can be referred to as either casing when it's applied around a door or baseboard when it's applied to the floor, but it's the same thing. All that's really needed to install baseboard or door casing is a power miter saw and some type of nail gun.
