Light or dark trims for grey house?

Deciding whether white or dark trims would suit a grey home?

The owners of this home knew they wanted light grey walls, and loved Dulux Miller Mood, a nice light, clean grey.

However, they needed help to decide whether to match their light grey wall colour with dark, almost charcoal trims or lighter white trims.

That’s when their painter, BJC Painting Services, came to us to render colour mock-ups to show what each option could look like.

The darker Dulux Guild Grey on the gable trims, gutter, fascia and handrail creates a stronger, high-contrast look. Meanwhile the all-white trims in Dulux Lexicon Half create a softer, almost fairy-tale cottage look.
