Which white paint should I use for my trims?

Posted by Rebecca McDonald on

Here's our top 7 trim white paint colours to consider when painting your skirting boards, architraves and window reveals. 
Usually painted in semi-gloss, and we like to paint your trims 1 or 2 shades lighter than full strength, if you are using the same colour on the walls.

To find the best match, we advise getting A4 paint samples called  "drawdowns" or "brushouts" from the paint shop or online. Move these around the trims in your rooms, at different times of the day to test the colour in the different lights, and see how they work with your wall colour. 

If you are still stuck, engage the experts - I am a Resene Colour Expert and have the tools and skills to quickly work out the best neutral for your space and style.
