Wall and trim paint colors

Lyndi's picture

Do you think it is becoming more common to paint the walls and trim exactly the same paint color? This used to be "the lazy man's way"! If walls and trim (baseboard and casing) are the same color, do you use the same sheen (i.e. all eggshell), or should walls and base/case be a different sheen?

Yes, I came across TV episode right after I posted this. Talk about timely! Thanks.

Hi Lyndi! Painting walls and trim the same colour is a big look right now. Have you seen our latest Online TV episode? Lynda Reeves talks about this, too. Watch it here.

We've shown pairings of matte walls with high gloss trim. Lynda also suggests trim colours for those who prefer contrast.

Hope that helps!
