4 Pro Tips for Using Trim to Highlight Color
You have decided to paint the interior of your home for a fresh new appearance. And you carefully selected the paint colors for every room to make sure they complement your décor. But did you know that painting the trim or molding can emphasize the architecture, as well as highlight the colors of the walls, ceiling, & doors? While many homeowners overlook the trim or simply paint it in its original color, interior designers use trim color to give a home that wow factor. Here’s a few tips to help you choose the interior trim color for your home.
It’s Fun to Be Bold
Bold paint colors create a vibrant, fun and energetic space. Painting the trim in a bold color that contrasts with the wall color can create a dramatic appearance. This is especially the case with light or neutral wall colors. For example, for beige, gray or ivory walls, try painting the trim in a contrasting shade of blue, or yellow like Broad Daylight from Clark + Kensington. There is a wide palette of bold color choices to choose from, so be creative, and you’ll create the best look.
A Subtle or Neutral Look is Sophisticated
To create a subtler space, you can paint the trim molding a few shades darker or lighter than the wall color. This will project a sophisticated appearance and give the room a sense of depth. You can even open the space so that it appears larger by painting the trim in the same color as the walls.
Classic White Trim is Timeless
For homeowners who are looking for that classic timeless look, you can’t go wrong with white. It has long been a popular choice among homeowners. The best thing about white is that it can blend in with almost any color or décor. And it is available in a wide variety of shades like an eggshell, ivory, cream, and off-white, for example. Choose a shade of white that you like best.
Elegant Black Trim
Just because you have chosen classic white walls doesn’t mean you have to settle for the same trim color. You can give your home a clean and elegant, tuxedo appearance that highlights white walls like a work of art with a black trim color. Or for a rustic appearance, you can paint the trim in a brown or wood grain color that acts like a frame around the white walls.
The color of the trim or molding can enhance the interior design of your home. Overlooking the trim color is like hanging a painting on a wall without a frame.
