JUELLs Favorite White Paint
White paint colors are not all created equal, which makes choosing the right shade quite tricky.
There are many options in undertones and finishes, each combination creating different impact.
JUELL Design services are there for all your design and staging needs, ready to work safely and virtually!
At JUELL we are often asked "What is the best white paint color?"
Here are 5 great white paints we think work well in every home.
1 BENJAMIN CHANTILLY LACE
This shade of white is quite a pure white. If you're looking for a bright white with minimal undertones, this is a great choice!
2 BENJAMIN MOORE SWISS COFFEE
Warm and welcoming, it's a great option for more traditional spaces and plays well with other creamy tones and golden hues.
3 BENJAMIN MOORE SIMPLY WHITE
A bit of a chameleon, this white looks warm when paired with warm tones and cool when paired with cool tones.
4 BENJAMIN MOORE WHITE DOVE
White Dove has creamy grey undertones. While not a true white, it still has a soft calming effect without looking yellow. This is a great choice in spaces with lots of natural light.
5 SHERWIN WILLIAMS WHITE FLOUR
This white has brown undertones, however in bright naturally lit spaces, it reflects a clean, creamy white.
A great shade for open-concept living or studio apartments to create a minimal yet warm look.
6 FARROW AND BALL SHADED WHITE
Appearing cool true white in sunny rooms, and cool slightly greenish gray in darker spaces, A great white for adding drama to a room.
JUELL's White Paint Tips
If you tend to like a clean, modern aesthetic, choose a crisp, soft white.
If you lean a bit more traditional, try a soft, warm white.
Choose a warm white for a room with northern exposure to counterbalance its cool grey tones.
In rooms with little natural light, whites will appear grey-is regardless of the white used. However, choosing a "warm white" will help to balance this effect.
Try it Out
Paint large swatches on card stock, then hold them up to different wall in different lights, Be sure to test different times day as well.
What Sheen Should I Use
Walls Typically Flat or Eggshell. The Eggshell sheen is generally a go to for families because its easier to clean without being too shiny.
Ceiling Typically Flat
Baseboards Satin or Semi-Gloss
Cabinets Typically Satin finish
Remember that shine bounces light and is easy to clean but highlight imperfections. Try to strike a balance between the condition of your walls and the sheen you choose.
