Trim work is hard, tedious, and expensive. I like to buy clear 4x4's and take them to the table saw to make what I need, but my wife's impatience with completing this job led to buying prepainted plastic stuff. Options for corners---you can put in plinth blocks and butt the trim up to them. Nice, clean. You can cut the material to 45 degree angles and fit them to each other. They never fit perfectly for me though. I like this option best----cut the trim on a 45 degree angle, then follow the edge with a knife or coping saw, cut at a 90. Make sense? didn't think so. Here is the trim cut at a 45. Here, the trim is getting cut at a 90 degree angle following exactly where the outer surface of the material was cut. This will butt up perfectly to matching trim in a corner.
