In a low ceiling basement w/ beautiful new tile floors (we hired that one out), the old matte paint is getting the next new do. The casings and doors will remain the slightly darker than eggshell color, but go from matte to semigloss. The satin new color for the walls goes beautifully w/ the new tile if I do say so myself after hours at the paint store - kind of a dove-sand-taupe hue. Here's my question about the baseboards: paint in the new color to match the walls, or the in the old color to match the casings and the doors? (either color will be semi-gloss). The old color does not look as good as the new against the tile, but the original 3" baseboards are also no great shakes. Replacing them w/ something better is not a priority, nor in the budget. So many photos/mags these days show bright white or very light baseboards adjacent to nearly every style flooring and wall I see. In my mind's eye, keeping the baseboards the cream color will draw attention to them, and painting them the same color, though different finish, will emphasize the flooring. I've read other posts that say the opposite though. I would love any opinions...... I need to get this done before the holiday!
