I have a dilemma. Several rooms in our new house have pretty nice wood stained window frames. I was originally thinking of painting the trim white for that crisp look that would go well with any wall color. But now I am considering leaving the wood the way it is, but know my color selection for the walls will then be limited. This is a picture of the TV room with cherry colored wood trims. I don't know what to do. Leave the trims the way they are, and if so, what colors should I choose for the walls? Or paint the trims white?

Hi there
That is a tough decision. Some people like wood trim and others don't.
I like wood trim if it is finished properly. Some wood looks crappy and is more appealing painted white or an off white.
One thing I notice is you have a lot of wood and it really takes the focus from everything else.
It all comes down to your preference.
Just keep in mind that once you paint , it will be very tough to get it back to clear wood.
Try to visualize it painted and with different color schemes.
Take your time
Good luck
David
