Not the cookie-cutter type of person? If that’s the case, you may be looking to do something original with your interior painting. Fortunately, you don’t have to repaint your white walls to give your home some pizzazz. One trick you may not have thought about is painting the trim a color other than white! Since they’re small accents in a room, the trim provides the perfect opportunity to introduce some contrast into a room without making an overwhelming statement. Read on to learn which non-white colors you should consider for your interior trim.  

Cream or Ivory

Ivory or cream-colored trim against pure white walls is a gorgeous combination! The off-white contrast will make your home look classic and timeless. Plus, a neutral cream color is a great design choice because it pairs well with several different styles and colors. You truly can’t go wrong with these neutral options!

Grey or Greige

Two incredibly popular color choices for interior trim are grey and greige. Even though they’re neutral, they work very well with several different styles of home design. They’ll give your home a classy yet elegant look that is simply unmatched. Grey trim is often paired with white walls, while a dark gray trim can look amazing against a light gray wall


If you want to make a powerful style statement, black interior trim is certainly the way to go. Not only does it look stunning, but it’ll make your space feel elegant and sophisticated. Plus, the color choice will make a very distinct frame for your room and won’t clash with anything. Of course, you still want to ensure it’s well-balanced. Avoid using black trim in conjunction with dark wall colors as it can make your home feel constricting and uninviting. Instead, opt for white walls or other light neutral colors!

Choosing Paint Sheen for Your Trim

While paint color is certainly important, but don’t forget to think about sheen. Making the right choice for your home is much easier to do than you might think! More often than not, semi-gloss is the preferred sheen option. It’s reflective and highly washable, which is a significant advantage considering baseboards and trim tend to get dirty the quickest.

As you can see, there are many beautiful non-white colors to choose from for your interior trim. With any of these options, you can make your home look modern and inviting!
