A great list of the best white paint colors and pictures of them in real life rooms. A perfect resource if you’re trying to find the best white paint color.
White painted walls are definitely growing in popularity lately, and I really wasn’t sold on them for a long time.
Then we had a reaaaaaally dark kitchen/mudroom in the rental house, and I started thinking about white paint.
We painted the room Aesthetic White. I still wasn’t sold even while I was in the middle of painting the room (the color goes on pretty gray). But after it dried, I actually really loved it.
No one was more surprised than me.
But I just love it with the dark wood. The contrast is so pretty.
I’m a huge believer in paint samples, but we really didn’t look at too many white paint colors. I know, weird!
Not my usual painting style at all. I kind of just picked Aesthetic White based on pictures from the internet and went with it.
I’ve gotten questions on other white paint colors, especially colors that are more white. (Aesthetic White is definitely off-white. You can see how it looks next to the white trim and bench in the picture above.)
So I rounded up the best white paint colors from Sherwin Williams, Behr and Benjamin Moore below. It’s a fun list if you’re thinking about painting a room white but not sure where to even start when it comes to looking at white paint colors.
Hopefully this gives you a good starting point so you know what paint samples to try out – or you can just dive right into the white paint thing like we did!
