And since most blinds fit inside the trim, they generally should match or be slightly darker than the trim. If you currently have white blinds or window treatments, wood blinds will of course look darker but won't necessarily darken the room unless all the walls are dark, too.
1. Match To Your Window Trim or Molding. A failsafe strategy that many lean on, is matching blinds or shades to the color of the window trim. Since most trim is white or off white, you can't go wrong with this neutral look, and you'll be guaranteed not to clash with other decor.
However, the blinds and walls should be at least one shade lighter or darker than each other to ensure that everything blends well together, and they should also be a similar tone. For example, cool window treatments are best suited for a cool-toned room—and the same goes for warm tones.
One failsafe strategy that people take is matching their blinds to the color of the window trim. Most window trims tend to be white or off white, which is a neutral color profile that goes with anything. If you don't want your blinds to be the focal point of the room, this is a good option for a classic look.
It's up to you. If you prefer the simplicity and consistency of getting the same window treatments throughout the house, you can certainly do that. But for a more interesting, custom look, mixing is actually preferable. Think about it like remodeling two bathrooms at once.

There is one simple, surefire way to make your living space look bigger than it is, and that is by using blinds. The right kind of window treatment can make a huge difference in how it accentuates the area and gives the appearance of increasing a room's square footage.
Cream Or White Colored Blinds
If you want something light and airy then a neutral white or cream is an easy choice to pair with wooden window trim. It's a good color to lighten up a room and works well with brown.
If you have white blinds or window treatments, wood blinds will of course look darker, but they won't darken the room unless all the walls are dark, too. That said, you will be reducing the number of visual elements in each room, so you'll have a more calm and cohesive look throughout your house.
You may prefer to have your blinds match your floors, molding or wood furniture, but don't be afraid to choose finishes that accent rather than match for a little bit of extra dimension and excitement.
Curtains offer better insulation and soundproofing.
In warm weather, however, blinds beat curtains in energy efficiency. Because blinds leak more heat from a room, they also decrease indoor heat gain more efficiently in the summer, by around 45 percent, which can lower your AC bills.
Plantation Shutters are usually built to appear as part of the window. Therefore, matching the shutters to the casing color is ideal. If you plan to use a different trim color than the shutter, this can give a crisper contrasting look, but not usually recommended by experts.

Most cellular shades are produced with white fabric to the outside, regardless of the fabric color on the inside.
