Which trim colour is right for my house? Getting your white trim colour right on the exterior and interior of your house is critical to the style of your home. If your exterior is blue or red, the trim colour you choose can mean the difference between your house looking nautical or heritage.
White trim looks nautical
Notice how nautical the above house looks and of course it helps that there’s a porthole looking window above the front door.

Yellow or cream trim looks heritage
Heritage style homes typically pay tribute to their historic architectural details and craftsmanship. And in this case, creamy or yellow trim colour is more enduring to its historic design roots than bright white trim. That’s why it’s so important to consider your home’s architectural style before choosing exterior colour.
