Choosing Interior Paint Colors: Choosing the trim paint and trim colors


Trim color very important, people tend to
Always default to white or off-white. It depends on what color your
wall color is for, what color your trim should be. So the darker your wall color, the darker your trim color should be. It should be a darker white. The great thing about PPG Pittsburgh Paints is
we give ideas for your trim color! All of our color chips So that whenever you’re choosing the paint color
for the wall, in our 5 color chip, there’s always a trim color for you to pick as well. The creamer whites look better with this
type of white that they have here. It’s a little bit of a creamer,
yellower white. It just transitions better and makes the room warmer. The
second you put like an off white or just plain white trim, because you think trim should
always be just plain white, it can look really unfinished and too much of a
contrast. So you want that nice contrast, a creamer white for your trim. For trim, and doors, cabinets, bathroom walls sometimes people still want to go to the satin or semi- gloss,
and you can go all the way to a full gloss But just know that a full gloss is going to give you a lot of shadows and pick up a lot of light. A flat obviously deflects light. Now in
new homes you don’t have to worry about the drywall job being not good. We tend to recommend true flats
for older homes, that might have some imperfections in
the wall. The second you put a flat in their it takes all those
imperfections away. The higher the sheen the more you see the finish, so we
recommend, still for walls it should be a flat or an eggshell, especially for a new
home it should be eggshell finish. Our Manor Hall finishes are our best paint of all. We use the Speedhide in
the new homes for Heartland. If you want to repaint, Manor Hall Eggshell is
fantastic it’s very scrub-able. I use it in my kitchen, where you’re able to
scrub off spaghetti sauce, or anything off the wall and it doesn’t come off in
the paint. the important part is that when you’re using a flat or an eggshell you
get a really elegant finish on the wall and people used to think that in
order to scrub the paint you had to go up in sheen, like a semi-gloss or a gloss. People still use gloss in their bathrooms and
you don’t need to do that anymore. The hundred-percent acrylic resins that
are out there and the eggshell and flat finishes have that ceramic scrub-able
finish, that you don’t need to use a high
gloss to get there. It’s always important to change the sheen from your
walls to trim. Like you don’t want to use flat on your trim, it just doesn’t look
good. If you have beautiful trim and you want to highlight it
you absolutely want to increase the sheen to a semi- gloss, satin semi-gloss , or glass and keep the
walls of flat or and eggshell. And then you get a beautiful transition and
you get a little bit of depth and dimension to the whole wall.
