Overall I believe Alabaster is one of the best paint colors by Sherwin Williams. But when it’s paired with honey oak trim, cabinets, or flooring, it simply works. Alabaster is a beautiful off-white color with a hint of shading that delivers a cream color effect. This cream color effect is a fantastic match for honey oak. I find the color perfect for lightening up my kitchen with honey oak cabinets

2. Watery

Tricorn is one of my favorite dark paint colors. It’s a traditional yet classic black color that blends effortlessly with honey oak trims. Although the color is a bit dark, it provides an outstanding backdrop that makes your space look classy. However, I wouldn’t use this color in a room that gets little light; instead, I would use it in a space with lots of bright natural light or as an accent wall color.

4. Searching Blue

It has a slivery vibe to it that makes it, unlike other blue colors. Moreover, the color complements honey oaks. I find it interesting because it makes my countertops and flooring in the kitchen glow at the same time and align with the white trim.

5. Salty Dog

Another ideal blue paint shade that works well with honey oak cabinets and trim is Sherwin Williams’ Salty Dog. It has a brilliant royal blue tone; however, it is neither nearly navy blue nor bright cobalt blue. The honey oak’s orange and yellow tones are subdued by the powerful blue tone, creating the ideal contrast. They seem to blend very well, in my opinion!

6. Evergreen Fog

Sherwin-Williams Evergreen Fog is a gorgeous soft green-toned gray that has cool undertones that will blend effortlessly with honey oak cabinets, furniture, and trims. Because of the cool grey undertones, the Evergreen Fog color will neutralize those warm tones in the honey oak wood, giving you a harmonious natural appearance.

7. Oyster Bay

In some cases, this neutral green paint color might look slightly blue, but it all depends on the lighting elements in your room. Regardless, this serene pain color appears absolutely stunning with honey oak trims.

8. Repose Gray color

Kilim Beige Sherwin-Williams color is one of those colors that blend effortlessly with most styles. As so, it matches with honey oak wood tones and gives a classy look. This color is from the yellow hue family but tends to lean a bit closer to the red-yellow side. I find this paint color more mid-toned than Canvas Tan. That being said, it can sometimes appear to look like a faint peach in certain lighting.

14. Loggia

More to that, the blue-green or blue paint color is a complimentary color to the orange-toned wood trim and oak cabinets.

The blue-green hue will not downplay the orange color of the honey oak, but it complements it well providing your room with an attractive and modest appearance. I consider the Rainwashed color as one of the best blue paint from Sherwin Williams.

Unlike most popular neutral paint colors we have mentioned above, the Toile Red gives a bold and more traditional vibe to your space. This darker red paint color has a thick brown appearance, taking away the vivid fire engine flamboyance frequently associated with red and substituting it with a vintage, sophisticated grown-up wine red.

This Toile Red Sherwin-Williams paint color will compliment your honey oak trim, floors, and cabinets giving your home a simple but sophisticated vintage look.


Honey oak wood trim is intended to be elegant and sophisticated, and it looks good when combined with the appropriate wall paint colors. Using honey oak wood in your home remains a perfect choice for your interior design.

However, it tends to be dominant in that it sticks out and can be difficult to decorate. The above ideas for Sherwin Williams paint colors go with honey oak trims and should help start you on your journey to determining the perfect combination.
