It's easy to overlook trim paint colors, because they're often just a minor detail when designing a room. However, we're here to give trim paint colors the recognition that they deserve. Trim colors can certainly define a room by accenting key features within your space. Although trim colors are predominately made up variations of white, we ventured into gray and tan undertones to create dimension against your beige walls. The question still remains on how can you achieve a harmonious look between a beige room and a trim? Have no fear, you don't have to hold up countless paint swatches to decide the best color for your trim. We curated the best white paint colors, along with some bold colors to make your trim stand out. We have everything from bright whites to warm whites that allow your beige walls to live in complete unity with your seamless trim. Prep and sand those baseboards and prepare to fall in love with the perfect trim color.
