Best White Paint Colors

One of the things we get asked about most often is paint colors, specifically our favorite neutrals.  So we're going to do a mini upcoming series on our favorite whites and grays.

Let's start with the whites.  You think that white is just white...until you get to the paint aisle and stare at those tiny 2" paint squares and see a ton of different variations until your eyes cross and you have no idea which is which.  Which is why we're here to help!

Let's walk you through our favorites.

China White

This one is a warm, off-white perfect for a tranquil setting.  Its warm tones are very calming and welcoming and will look great in just about any room.

Swiss Coffee

This is another one in Benjamin Moore's Off-White Collection.  It has warm undertones with slight hints of green as you can see in the image below.

Cloud Nine

This is another soft white with slight hints of gray.  It's enough of a subtle change from standard white trim while still being a blank slate for any room.

Simply White

There is a reason this was named Color of the Year a couple of years back.  It looks good on cabinetry, walls, really anywhere in house.  It's not too gray and not too yellow, simply white.  Pun intended.

White Dove

Here's another warm white with less yellow undertones.  It's classic and warm without too much pigmentation.
