COLOR-TIPS04TIP #4: Wood trim – use it or lose it 

Wood moldings and trim can be an asset or a liability, but smart paint choices can help you make the most of them, either way.

If you have attractive new trim or older fixtures with character and charm, accentuate them by using a contrast color that’s lighter or darker than the walls.

Or, for trim that’s plain – or just plain unattractive – simply paint it the same color as the wall…and watch it disappear “into the woodwork.”
