When it comes to paint colors, there is no such thing as “just white”. So, once you’ve done with texture removal and turned your walls into a blank canvass, it’s time to search for the perfect white paint that will brighten up your interiors. The perfect white is like the Holy Grail of home design. No other color is versatile enough to go well with any other style or design, yet just have the right amount of character to stand on its own.
The challenge for many home designers is getting just the right shade of white to match the feeling, lighting and space considerations of where it will be used.
Different Kinds of White
Contrary to what many people believe, in terms of interior or exterior painting, white carries a lot of subtle nuances that differentiate one hue from another. Certain whites have undertones of other colors, which can be hard to spot without any point of references. Hold a piece of white paper against a paint sample, and the differences become clearer. Understanding these different types of white can help you find the right shade for your room.
Matching Other Elements
Consider all other parts of the room where you want to apply the white paint. Think about the emotion and the mood of the room, and factor this into your decision. Some rooms will have warm tones to promote restful relaxation while others may be more vibrant and inspiring. Use these subtle hints to dictate the kind of white you will use.
