Tips and tricks for choosing a colour for your interior trim.

For a bold look

Painting the trim in a bold hue that contrasts with your wall colour will add a dash of drama to your room. If you’ve got neutral walls, you’ll find that you can use almost any hue on the trim. A bright trim colour works particularly well on windows and doors as it helps to create a dramatic frame from one view to another.

For a modern look

If you want a modern, understated look, we recommend you choose a colour that’s either few shades lighter or darker than your wall colour. You’ll find that this creates a lovely sense of depth.

If you choose just one or two shades lighter or darker, the effect will be even more muted and sophisticated.

For a classic look

White is a popular choice for trim as it is impossible to get wrong with this colour. Crisp and fresh, it will help you create a classic, timeless look and works wonders at highlighting ornate features, such as cornices, archways and mantels.

For a subtle look

For a seamless, subtle look, paint the trim in the same colour as your walls. This is a clever way of making small spaces seem larger, as the uninterrupted colour will help to open up the space and make the room feel more airy.

For a slightly less subtle look, paint the trim in glossy or mid-sheen finish – this will highlight the trim without ruining the flow of the space.
