Painting HVAC Registers and Speakers

FrankR's picture


I'm painting a large family room with an 18 foot sloped ceiling.  The room has about a dozen HVAC registers  - most are just above the base molding, but a few are placed in the wall about 10 feet off the ground.  The room also has in-wall speakers about 36 inches off the ground.   Is there a general rule as to what colors to paints HVAC registers and speaker grills?   I seem to notice the ones high on the wall being painted the wall color and the lower ones being painted the trim color.  I would appreciate any suggestions.

I'd think whatever the owner's preference is (wall color or trim color). While my track home was with a cream color walls and white trim, the cheesey registers were left factory-white to match the MDF-based trim.
