Who doesn’t have a hard time picking a white paint colour for their cabinetry, walls, trim, ceilings (and the list goes on)? The choices can be overwhelming, and getting it wrong can be frustrating.
My biggest tip is to identify how white you want to go. The real difference between them all is the undertone or the shade. Some will be stark, some will be creamy and some may appear yellow, blue, or another colour that you don’t want to see.
OUR TOP 4 WHITE PAINT COLOURS
- OXFORD WHITE – BENJAMIN MOORE CC-30
This is a warm white with very little undertones which makes it a great option for many. It isn’t too bright or stark and works with many different colour palettes.
- DECORATORS WHITE – BENJAMIN MOORE OC-149
This colour is part of the Off-White collection and feels a little more muted, serene, and cool compared to some other whites. I find it works especially well with warm grey tones.
- SIMPLY WHITE – BENJAMIN MOORE OC-117
This is a very clean, crisp and versatile white for cabinetry and trim. This colour has a touch of yellow which makes it a little warm, but not too creamy.
- WHITE DOWN – BENJAMIN MOORE CC-50
White down has a very subtle grey undertone, making it a favourite for many. It is warm but still a true white. This would be a favourite for both cabinetry and trim, and also walls because it is so livable.
