While there are thousands of paint colors to choose from and we encourage our customers to enhance the appeal of their homes’ interiors and exteriors by picking updated and fun colors, there is a place for white paint in your home.  You might think that white paint is … well … just white paint.  It’s not!  White paint comes in warm undertones of yellows (tans and creams) and reds (pinks and orange).  It also comes in cooler undertones of greens, blues, and grays.  Sherwin Williams alone offers 187 standard “white” paint colors from which to choose.

What are some great uses for white paint?

  • White ceilings with colored walls make a room feel and look taller than it really is.
