The Case for Black Trim Finishes

Have you ever considered painting your window trim or casements black?  While I wouldn't necessarily paint over solid wood (although you certainly can!), I would definitely consider painting over any non-wood surface (like metal or vinyl).

Black has a way of making things look more refined, stylish, and elegant.  See how the window moldings above pop because the trim and casement are painted black?!  They really elevate the overall design of the room.  The wainscoting and dental crown moldings are somewhat overshadowed not in a bad way because they weren't painted black.

I LOVE when french doors or sliders are finished in black.  Black adds a modern sophistication to something so ordinary, like doors or windows.  Guess what color I want our future new sliders/french doors to be?! :)

In case you're still not sold, here are a few more inspirational examples that make the case for black trim finishes:

  1. Ideally, I like black windows with no trim. Really love that. But you showcased that there can be even traditional trim, or white trim around them and still look awesome.

    Why didn't you post this before I bought our white windows?!

    1. Lol! We replaced our windows with white ones too, but I may paint them black one day... :)
