Trim and Ceiling Color with BM Linen White Cabs

Posted by MIssyV (My Page) on

I know BM's Linen White is a popular color for kitchen cabs, so when we chose it for our kitchen cabs, I thought it would be easy to find colors to paint our trim and ceiling. Upon research here on GW, I am not finding a black and white answer!

I think my biggest dilemma is that I want to put molding on our cabs where they meet the soffit and again where the soffit meets the ceiling, and think it should be Linen White. But, at the end of the cabinet run will begin the rest of the trim in our family room. Do they need to be the same color? I don't want a stark contrast, but also not sure I want Linen White for my trim color either, it seems a little too creamy to me in our space. Thoughts?

4. Could I paint the trim Linen White where the cab meets the soffit, but then a slightly different color for the trim that is going where the soffit meets the ceiling, allowing me to use that color throughout the rest of the house?
