I just changed my interior doors. Do I paint them semi gloss white or shiny white?

I want all the trim in the house white and the doors. Just not sure what white to paint. Any suggestions as to type of paint and color?

We normally recommend a semi gloss for trim and doors. As to the color, there are standard decorator whites and other whites tinted to go with a certain palette. If you are selling, stick to standard decorator white but if you are decorating to live, don't be afraid to experiment with your whites!

Thanks for you advice. Didn't realize there were so many whites to pick from. My house is mostly beiges and browns, what would you suggest?

I agree, I would recommend a semi gloss made for doors and trim also. White goes with everything. Sherwin Williams Paints has one that is ready made on their shelves. You can run in and run out.

The best white for neutrals is Swiss coffee.

Benjamin Moore and Kelly Moore. Bright creamy deliciousness

Benjamin Moore Decorators white or cloud white are both nice whites. If you want some drama leave all your trim white and paint the doors black. I know a little scary but...it looks great!
