The Many Shades of White Paint

The Many Shades of White Paint

     White is a paint color that is loved by some people and detested by others.  Whichever side of the spectrum you fall closer to, white is certainly a color that deserves a second look, because there is a vast array of shades of white that you may want to consider for particular paint jobs around your home.  From cool and classic to warm and cozy, white paint is available in a variety of hues and shades, and every paint vendor has a plethora of white paint options for you to explore.

     White paint is a color that can be used throughout the entire home.  It is appropriate for kitchens, hallways, bedrooms, bathrooms, foyers, family rooms, laundry rooms, sunrooms, ceilings, trim work, and so much more.  Even if white is not a favorite color of yours, you may wish to consider that is can be quite attractive and useful in some places within a home.

     For example, when white paint is chosen that is mixed with warm undertones, such as Sherwin Williams’ Shoji White (HGSW4014) or Natural White (HGSW4017), then a room can become a warm, inviting place to gather amongst a color that is subtle and not too much of a stark contrast to the naked eye.  A soft shade of white can evoke a feeling of calmness and serenity, as it also offers a natural crispness and clean atmosphere in whichever room that it is used.

     Some people may wish to mix white paint with other bold paint colors, in order to create a classic color scheme that emulates a simple, charismatic appeal.  For example, the “black and white” color trend has been around for many decades, and can prove to be an interesting color scheme for a room that inspires crisp lines and simple, direct colors.  Sometimes red shades, dark purple shades, or some other bold color, may also be mingled in with the black and white colors, in order to throw in more of a contrast within the room.

     White paint shades can be warm, radiant, or cool.  They can be stark, or complimentary, or contrasting and compelling.  Although some people may see white as a bland, uniform color shade, it is a color that actually has much more depth to it, as long as you take the time to differentiate between the different shades that are available.  Your paint supply company can share the many white options with you, if you would like to further your investigation, or the varying options can be explored online, as well.
