Trim Painting Trends
Without a doubt, one of the easiest, quickest, the most affordable way to completely change the look of the interior or exterior of a home is through painting. Painting is an art just as much as it is a trade, and with it being so artistic in its application it definitely does great things for the overall appearance of your home.
A fresh coat of paint can do wonders in any house, strongly changing the look of it with just a few strokes of a brush. Painting is also relatively affordable, especially when compared to other home-improvement options, and it is quite easy to perform a painting project in a home without heavily impacting the other areas of your home.
The trick to doing a good paint job, however, is to really take your time with deciding on exactly what you are going to do. Unlike with some other home improvements, how a paint job will look is greatly affected by the choices made in what type of painting to do. This is where Hall Painting ideas come into play. While it is true that any painting is better than no painting, because any fresh paint will make a space look better, personal choice weighs heavily on how a space will look in the end.
One of the areas of painting that people tend to ask us about the most is what to do with the trim in their home. Trim is what makes a room pop. It is the accent to the room, and it is what draws the eye the most. This is why most homeowners spend more time focusing on what to do with their trim than any other aspect of the paint project. Listed below are a few different ways to make the trim in your house truly special:
- Probably the most common look for trim is to paint it with a high-quality, semi-gloss or satin white paint. There is something so special about a very bold white on the trim. Also, the added sheen will give it a sharp look that will reflect light and make it pop even more. Finally, using a high-quality product will ensure that the paint dries to a hardened enamel, effectively protecting the trim from bumps, dings, and abrasions.
- A lot of people go with a more natural, wood grain look, from a stain, varnish, lacquer, or polyurethane product. This is the look that is best done on more traditional homes or homes that have a lot of wood effects on them. This look provides options because you can essentially go with any lightness or darkness of stain.
- Some people choose to not put a lot of emphasis on the trim, and this choice is best if you are trying to put the focus of the home elsewhere. If you want to emphasize the wall, go with flat white on your trim instead. If you want to accentuate paintings, furnishings, the floor, or other various installations, try going with a more calm, relaxed off-white color.
- Another option that is very common is to paint the trim a similar color as the walls. In this way, the trim actually complements the wall paint. If you have a bold color on the walls, a more relaxed color of a similar nature on the trim is ideal. If you have a very calm color on the walls, but you wish to accentuate it, then it is best to go with a stronger color of a similar tone on the trim.
