Paint Colors for Dark Wood Trim


Kilz Moody Teal Paint


One reason people often renovate their homes is because of dark paneling or wood trim that makes a room feel dated. But even dark wood accents can warm up a space and become the celebrated part of a room with the right accent color. After going through a lot of trial and error in the past, I now have a couple go to colors that I love sharing.


One of my favorite paint brands, Kilz, is carried on Amazon which means I can get a gallon of paint delivered to my door in record time. I can also take all the time I need thinking about the color choices, and right now during another Covid spike it feels like a much safer choice doing that online than spending a lot of time in a store. My best online paint find of all time to accent dark wood trim is definitely Kilz Moody Teal. Kilz is much more affordable (around $35 a gallon) than other brand name paint, and the can really went far covering more than two large walls.
