Best to invest in a good hard wood trim or mdf painted white?

anything but MDF...

FJ pine is better than MDF and usually cheaper...

MDF is not structurally sound.....

Outside corners are prone to chipping....

It hates water..

It contains high levels of formaldehyde that can off gas for years...

This article may cause you to rethink using MDF...

 

As for hardwood, stained or clear coated but not painted..

way aesthetically better..

it adds value, beauty, a natural feel and luxury to your home...

it has the potential for many generations of hard use because of its durability and quality....

Agree with what's been said.  While doing our home remodel I have been using FJP and making some trim myself (also pine) because everything else in the house is painted.
