What Color Paint Goes With Oak Trim?

Both warm and cool neutral colors work well with oak trim. Homeowners should select colors based on the tone of the wood they want to bring out, from a light golden shade to medium or dark trim.

A very common oak trim used in homes is a honey oak, which is a light golden shade. To really make the most of this wood trim consider painting the walls a muted neutral color that contrasts the wood tone. Take the emphasis off a golden trim with cooling gray, blue and greens. When a brighter tone is desired, enhance it with whites, light grays, beige, tans and soft yellow shades.
