“My house needs a fresh paint job. I feel good about picking a wall colour but do you have any suggestions for the perfect white trim paint colour?”
You are so right, picking the right white can be tricky. The look of a fresh coat of paint is spectacular and painting that trim really completes the feel. But like every other colour – there are many whites to choose from. Not knowing which paint colour you will choose, your safest best is you use a pure and true white tone, you can’t go wrong with that. We have a few favourites to share with you.
- Decorator’s White by Benjamin Moore -just like the name, it is a decorator’s (and painter’s) favourite. It’s clean and crisp.
- Ultra Pure White by BEHR – so clean and so crisp -this is one of the purest whites you will see.
- Extra White by Sherwin-Williams – a great white trim choice, bright white!
- All White by Farrow & Ball – a perfect white
Other trim painting tips:
Caulking – be sure that before you start painting that trim to caulk any gaps
Order – paint the trim first and then the walls
Finish – be sure to use a semi-gloss when it comes to choosing a finish for your trim. A semi-gloss adds even more brightness but also when it comes to cleaning, the dust doesn’t stick!
I hope these tips and suggestions on finding the ‘perfect’ shade of white work for you,
