White is a classic color that never goes out of style. It’s the perfect hue to use for a clean and welcoming home interior. However, choosing the right shade of white can be a daunting task. Who would think that picking a white could be so hard? I have painted a room multiple times because I could not find the perfect White though. I am sharing the best White paint colors to help you make the right choice for your home and hopefully prevent you from repainting!
Sherwin Williams Dover White
Dover White is a creamy white paint that’s perfect for creating a vintage or shabby chic look. Its slightly yellow undertones give off a warm and inviting feeling that can create a cozy atmosphere. It’s also a great option for homes with natural wood cabinetry or flooring, as it complements the earthy tones of wood. We used this color on the walls in the 50’s Fabulous Farmhouse.
Places to use: Dover White is a perfect fit for bedrooms, living rooms or family rooms. It can also work well in a vintage and classic kitchen.
Benjamin Moore White Dove
White Dove is another creamy white paint, but with more gray undertones than Dover White. It’s a versatile color that can work well in any part of the house. Its neutral undertones provide a subtle beautiful finish to the walls without getting too cool or warm.
Places to use: Dove White is ideal for hallways, foyers, and living rooms. It’s also a great option for those who are unsure of what white to choose since it goes well pretty much everywhere.
Sherwin Williams Pure White
Pure White is a true, crisp white that’s perfect for creating a modern and sophisticated look. It’s a classic, timeless color that can add fresh and airy vibes to space. It’s also an excellent option for small and dark spaces as it can brighten them up without overwhelming them. This is my go-to color for all doors and trim.
Places to use: Pure white works best in the kitchen, bathroom, or as a trim color in any place. It can also be a great choice for exterior accents, such as entry doors, shutters, and window trims.
All three white paints above are excellent choices, depending on the look and feel you’re going for. Whether you’re looking for warmth, neutral, or pure colors, these options are sure to transform your space into a beautiful and welcoming atmosphere. Happy painting!
