    Painted trim is the fad right now along with the whites and grays look. I will admit, it does look sharp. But, it is just fad. There will never be a substitution for the natural beauty of wood.

    It is a ‘fad’ that has been around for over 100 years. And I agree great natural wood is best but high quality natural hardwood or clear pine has always been somewhat rare and expensive – painted looks a lot better than crap woodeven well finished and unfortunately that is what is mostly available today. I occasionally stop in at hardwood mills and the available product is not what it used to be.
