The wider the trim you choose, the better. There are different shapes, sizes and colors from which to choose, allowing you to fit in more or less to any design style.
Be Creative with Paint
Clever use of paint can add an extra depth to any interior. Going from bland white to the use of colors and patterns can do wonders to your place. If you choose neutral colors, use trim and accents to add an air of sophistication. Don’t stop with wall paint only, by the way. Using color on trim or interior doors is easily done without replacing them. A popular trend nowadays is matte black doors, a great contrast creator in most interiors, promoting an expensive look.
