Trim Color: Thoughts from Shawn, our professional designer
"Primary wall and accent wall colors are clearly the most important considerations for your bedroom decor. And you could simply use the same colors for any adjacent trim. But a relatively small investment of time and money to paint the trim Sanded Birch will significantly enhance the appearance of your child's room.
"I have selected Sanded Birch as the trim paint color to best ‘frame’ and enhance the Wetherburn Tan paint that I have selected for your primary wall color. The Sanded Birch trim paint will have a semi-gloss finish. The shinier surface of this paint will create a decorative contrast with the walls, will be more durable and washable (protection against vacuum cleaner scuffs), and will enhance the grain of wood trim.
"Most painted wood doors are already painted white, frequently with a high gloss oil-based paint (as compared to the Latex base of Mother’s Touch™) that is perfect for such purposes. While you could certainly use the Sanded Birch trim paint to paint the doors, I suggest that you not do so unless you are very careful with preparing the surface before painting (by thoroughly sanding away any glossy finish on the current paint). Insufficient surface preparation could lead to durability problems because of the significant seasonal expansion and contraction of large wooden doors. From a decorative standpoint, the white doors will work just fine and may well create more interest in the room. And remember – most people looking at the room will be seeing the outside of the door that is swung open inside the room, not the inside of the door that you would be painting"
