    help! We have purchased a home with dark trim everywhere on the main floor. It is beautiful and all the doors are dark as well. The rooms are not huge, so it seems a bit closed in and I would like some ideas on how to lighten up the rooms without painting all the trim in the home. All the windows are dark trim as well. We do not get a lot of natural lighting in our home and I used to high ceilings and neutral colors. I really think that some great paint colors and rugs would help us out, but maybe it would be worth it to paint the trim? :confused: So glad to have found this forum, thank you!

    Welcome LeeCurran:
    I would paint walls ceilings and all with an 'off white' (bone white, antique white) satin latex enamel, Use some new colorful area rugs, then you furniture, pictures and accessories would top it off. Painting the trim would be very tedious and painful and it may be cherry or another exotic wood that would be criminal to paint.
