Color of room trims and doors are an important element in room décor
Mar 28 2011
The color of moldings, trims and doors can be as important as wall color when home decorators are considering a new design scheme for a room.
The color of ceilings and wood trim in a room should be considered in the color choices for a room.
Most frequently, these elements are painted white or kept in a natural wood state. But while white or wood tones can offset virtually any color scheme, there may be other reasons to choose an alternative.
"Don't hesitate to paint the doors and wall trims the same color as the walls, if you don't want the extra detail or the doors and trims aren't great," home design consultant Cindy Bergersen told Hamptons.com. "Use a satin finish for the trim, and washable matte for the walls."
Another alternative is to paint trims and doors in the same color family as the walls, but a few shades lighter or darker. Bergersen calls this effect "sophisticated, without being jarring."
The same approach can be taken in choosing window treatments. Particularly with window coverings that use fabric, such as roman shades or fabric roller shades, the color choice can complement the hue chosen for the walls, go lighter or darker in the same family or offer contrast to the wall and trim color scheme.
