If you’re not sure what colour to paint woodwork, the best place to start is by thinking about the particular woodwork in your home that you want to highlight – from doors and architraves to skirting boards and dado rail. Use a deep hue and it will add drama and depth, making the room feel more three-dimensional. And as we’ve demonstrated in the video, bringing the same shade through your home adds to the layered, abstract feel.
Think about paint finish, too. A glossier paint contains sheen that will bounce light around the room and make the space feel brighter, more open and fresher; this is really helpful in smaller rooms that can sometimes feel gloomy.
