What is exterior trim on a house?

The exterior trim on a house is the material that edges the windows, doors, and roof of the home. The material used for this is typically wood or metal, regardless of what is used to build the rest of the home. You will most often find the trim on a house to be a different color than the rest of the home. Dark trim gives depth, dimension, and a nice contrast to a lighter color home.


As you can see a house’s architectural style does not limit the ability to choose from our black and white paint color ideas. White exterior houses, paired with some natural wood accents on the front door or beams, black metal roofing, white brick, or light colored stone, along with prominent black windows is a staple exterior home idea that is bound to be around for quite some time.
