How to Choose The Best Trim Paint for your Home

TRIM PAINT

Choosing the best Trim Paint for your Home has never been easier with Colourtrend Paint. The Colourtrend Trim product range offers a water-based alternative to traditional, strong-smelling, solvent-based enamel paint finishes. A waterbased alternative means not only is it kinder to you and your family, it’s also better for your painter and the environment.

These New advances in alkyd technology have allowed Colourtrend to create a fantastic variety of quick-drying, low-odour, easy-to-use trim finishes. Colourtrend Trim products retain all the advantages of traditional solvent coatings, including excellent flow and levelling, and the finish is equally as hard-wearing and easy-to-clean.

Here’s how to choose the Best Trim Paint for your Home:

COLOURTREND GLOSS

Colourtrend Gloss is an excellent high-gloss paint with an exceptionally hard-wearing finish, making it ideal for garage doors or front doors where a high-sheen finish looks great. With virtually no odour it's the perfect waterbased alkyd for interior or exterior wood and metal.

Colourtrend Gloss Finish is available in 500ml, 1L, 3L and 5L

COLOURTREND SATIN

Colour - Milk TeethHistoric Collection (Trim)

Colourtrend Satin is by far the most popular finish in the Colourtrend Trim Paint range due to its softer mid sheen. This waterbased paint still delivers a tough and easy-to-clean finish making it the perfect option for interior woodwork, skirting boards and doors. It is very hard wearing and a great option for a busy kitchen or living area.

Colourtrend Satin Finish is available in 500ml, 1L, 3L and 5L

COLOURTREND EGGSHELL

Colour - Silver Birch, Contemporary Collection (Walls)
Colour - Classic White, Weather Collection (Trim)

Colourtrend Eggshell is the most traditional Trim Finish as it features a beautifully discreet low sheen finish that brings a richness to any interior and exterior wood and metal work. We see a lot of Eggshell Trim used in the Georgian Dublin houses.

Colourtrend Eggshell Finish is available in 500ml, 1L, 3L and 5L

COLOURTREND UNDERCOAT

Colour - Winters Breath, Contemporary Collection (Walls)
Colour - Brilliant White, Contemporary Collection (Trim)


The purpose of an undercoat is to establish a neutral base for colour to develop. You would use an Undercoat when you need to disguise surface imperfections, it’s not uncommon for a layer of undercoat to need a light sand down before recoating.

Undercoats are pigmented and can create an ample look when paired with enamel topcoats. We highly recommend using Colourtrend Undercoat with Colourtrend Gloss, Satin and Eggshell. 

Colourtrend Undercoat is available in 500ml, 1L, 3L and 5L
