So you chose white paint for your space ... but which shade of white? There's so much more than meets the eye! The perfect shade of white can make a huge difference based on the space, natural light, your personal preference, and more. Do you choose off-white, pure white, or crisp white? Who knew there were so many shades of white?

Thankfully, our color experts at Brush & Roll Painting have gathered the most popular shades of white that run the gamut for all spaces and styles. Read on to see what they chose and find the next color for your walls so you can stop staring at swatches and start enjoying your space!


Kitchen with white paint

Benjamin Moore's Cloud White is described as "reminiscent of vapor clouds on a clear day." Designers love this classic white that's warm, clean, and crisp. Best of all, it works with any design scheme and existing furniture and decor. It looks great with a whiter trim to make the warm creaminess stand out even more.


Chantilly Lace Benjamin Moore2. chantilly lace

A favorite of many, Chantilly Lace leans more on the cool side of white. If you want to go beyond just a pure, stark white (a little something extra), Chantilly Lace is likely your go-to white paint shade. It adds a soft, delicate touch to any space. Some describe this color as vintage and aged to perfection. You can use this as a backdrop for walls full of wall decor and hanging artwork.


WHite Dove Benjamin Moore3. white dove

An off-white with a creamy undertone, White Dove is a no-brainer for interiors and features a blend of different colors. Interior designers and influencers love this versatile shade for trim, interior walls, moldings, kitchen cabinets, and more. The warmth of White Dove will give an inviting look to every room without being too bright and overpowering.


White Heron Benjamin Moore4. White heron

When choosing shades of white, you always want to consider the natural light available in your space. For instance, White Heron looks best in a bright space as it has slight blue undertones and can pull gray at times in a darker space. 


Benjamin Moore Simply White5. Simply white

Another versatile white with a hint of warmth, Simply White can be used just about anywhere. It's a popular shade for kitchens and kitchen cabinet colors. This off-white paint shade will give an instant face-lift to any room you want to be updated.

Would you believe this shade of white has some peach undertones? Benjamin Moore's Atrium White has a soothing creaminess that homeowners and designers love. This is another shade that'll contrast with whiter trim and works as an amazing barely-there shade.


7. Decorator's White

Decorators White Benjamin MooreThe name has the right stamp of approval! This shade is indeed a go-to for designers as a sleek, do-anything shade.
