Help with trim color please!

chrisyreeJuly 15, 2014

I am about to have mildly off-white/cream cabinets installed in my new construction home. Ceiling is white. I was planning to have the trim in the open kitchen/ living area painted to match the cabinets, especially since there are 3 windows over the kitchen sink and the trim of those windows will be sharing a space with the cabinets. Then it struck me that the mullions/ grids and casing of the windows is white. The casing is not wood and the mullions are in between the panes so there is no option to paint those off-white. Is this going to work?

You might do better posting this on the Home Decorating forum along with a photo of the room.

Im definitely not an expert but am putting in stacked cabinets to the celiling. The room will have white crown all around it but the cupboards are going to be off white or light cream. In my design software I painted the cabinets cream and the moulding above cream and the rest white. I didn't like the look. When I painted the moulding white above the cabinet it popped and looked right. Again its only in the design software, haven't actually done it yet.
