The Most Popular White Paint Colors and How to Use Them

One thing people always ask us: How do you choose the right white paint color? Picking white paint colors can be tough. Do you go for a bright hue or for something more mellow? Start with 10 of Paintzen’s most popular shades of white and how our house painters have used them.

Who Are Our Painters

1) Willow Springs

When painting a bedroom, keep the color palette simple with a minimalist color scheme. A creamy wall color like Willow Springs works across a range of styles and is particularly beautiful in this sleeping space.

2) Parrafin

Modern rooms can handle striking color palettes, but a popular modern pairing, like black and white, can come off as cold. To give your modern space some warmth, get a crisp parchment tone such as Parrafin painted on your walls.

3) Silver Feather

If rustic modern is your thing, use a touch of gray on your walls. It’s not just for men! 🙂 It’ll set off the peach, pink, and wood tones, and in this bathroom, it picks up the gray in the floor. Get Silver Feather for this look.

4) Glacial Ice

A living room with lots of light requires the whitest white to maximize the light. A clear, pure white like Glacial Ice will bring out the best in furnishings and art. See what it does with the bold pops in this living room, with its orange pendant lamp and vibrant art.

5) Aria

Serene, coastal spaces take their color cues from the ocean, sky, and sand. When your space with this style is getting painted, try a blue-toned white like Aria.

6) Delicate White

Set off your home’s architectural details with a classic hue like Delicate White. Paintzen painters believe that painting trim and walls the same color let the eye travel seamlessly around the room.

7) Radisson

If you are getting your small, eat-in kitchen painted,  it can appear bigger with a coat of white paint. PPG’s Radisson brings out the best in any space, creating a warm welcoming feel.

8) Vanilla Milkshake
