  • All the Trimmings: Why You Should Paint Your Trim in Bold Colors

    September 22, 2017 | Blog | admin
  • orlando interior painters paint trim dark colorsIf your walls were works of art, your trim would be their frame; and if you’ve ever dabbled in the visual arts before, you know that the right frame can complete the piece. Most homeowners choose to leave their trim white, creating a classic, tidy look that will never go out of style. But if you want to add a little edginess to your living space, we recommend trying out a bold color on your trim.

    For most, this is uncharted territory, so the notion of playing up the trim with conspicuous colors can be a frightening idea; when it’s done right, however, the results are stunning. Here are 3 reasons why we love bold trim:

    • It’ll make your other bolds pop. Whether you have wallpaper, a patterned feature wall, or just your favorite colors adorning your room, painting your trim in a complementary bold color – think black – will help those other colors come to life. We don’t recommend using too many colors from different palettes, but don’t be afraid to pick the boldest one in your current lineup!
    • It’ll cover up imperfections. Painting your trim can be a godsend if you’re restoring an old home or dealing with mismatched wood grains. If you paint the trim in a deep, bold color, you’ll be able to minimize the appearance of those blemishes, or at least to help them blend in a little better. What’s more, if you paint the trim, you might be able to leave the rest of the paint alone!
    • It’ll help you kid-proof the house. Or adult-proof, for that matter! Trim picks up scuffs and scratches all the time, whether one of the kids knocks it with a backpack or you accidentally bump it while moving furniture. Painting your trim with a durable, dark paint can help keep that damage out of sight – although you will need to repair it before you repaint.

    Something as simple as painting your trim can be enough to give your home a modern, graphic look without having to apply wallpaper or paint an intricate pattern.
