White is white is white, right?
There are so many shades of white, it can be hard choosing the right one for any given project. Is it a cool white or a warm one? What vibe are you going for? A stark existence or a welcoming hue?
The color white, although simple in theory, is actually quite complex and it can be difficult choosing the right shade. Below, we give you some pointers to help you choose the perfect shade of white for your painting project.
Cool Or Warm White?
White comes with both cool and warm undertones. Cool whites include gray or blue undertones that lend a soft touch to the color. These undertones can soften harsh lighting and create a fresh vibe in the space. Many home improvement projects look great with a cool white rather than a warm one.
Warm whites, on the other hand, have yellow, pink, or peach undertones that give off a warm, inviting feel. Warm whites are best suited for rooms that don’t receive a lot of natural lighting as they lend a sunny vibe to the room.
When you’re searching for the right shade of white for your project, it’s a good idea to get samples of both cool and warm whites so you can determine which is best suited for your space.
Don’t Buy Before You Try!
It’s a bad idea to commit to a white before you’ve had a chance to see it in action in your home. Grab a few samples or paint cards to take home and really give each color a fair chance to show its beauty in all different kinds of light. You may be surprised to find out that the white you thought you liked really isn’t the right choice after all.
Finally, invite a few friends or family over to give their opinions on your samples. Fresh eyes can give a new perspective, so get a few opinions from other people to determine the right shade of white for your project.
There are literally thousands of shades of white to choose from, so don’t choose blindly. Go through the process and make sure to sample both cool and warm whites to eliminate an entire group of hues from your search.
Don’t get intimidated by your options. It’s only white, after all. The right shade will present itself in a quick hurry if you follow the tips above.

If you’re planning to paint the exterior of your home, don’t go for the same boring color combinations as the rest of your neighbors. Choose colors that pop and make a statement. Check out these color combinations that are sure to up the curb appeal of your home.
1. Muted Lime/Powder Blue/White
Bright colors like lime green and blue make for a winning combination when paired with white trim. Choose muted bright colors to keep the effect from being too much and be sure to paint every inch of trim in bright white for a stunning look.
If you’re looking for something softer than the first suggestion, try combining pearl gray, slate blue, and bright white. Paint the front door/entry point blue and the rest of the exterior in gray. Finish the look with bright white trim and you end up with a sleek mid-century modern style.
You can never go wrong with good ole’ red, white, and blue. But, adding a twist of beige in there just brings the trio to a whole new level. The trick to keeping this color combo from looking like year-round Fourth of July décor is to choose a light blue hue rather than navy and paint the trim both white and beige.
Sometimes simple is better, especially if your home is on the smaller side. Choosing a warm gray for the exterior and then giving the home a bright pop with a red front door and black shutters won’t overwhelm a humble abode. Any trim that’s visible should be finished with a bright white shade.
Lavender is a surprisingly great color for the outside of a home, especially when paired with a lovely purple door. The trick to keeping this color combo from being overly feminine is to choose a lavender shade with gray undertones and finishing the look with white trim for a modern look.
Navy blue is a popular exterior color these days, which means it will definitely up your home’s curb appeal. When paired with bright white trim and a lovely turquoise front door, your home will not only stand out, but it will also be the envy of the neighborhood.
7. Seafoam Green/White
You would expect to see a seafoam green home on the beach, but your home doesn’t need to be surrounded by sand for seafoam green to work. Paired with bright white trim, seafoam green works well in any setting.
If you’re thinking about painting the exterior of your home, take a moment to consider a color combination that will make it pop. Hopefully, the exterior color combinations listed above give you some great inspiration.
