Which Shade of White is Right for Your Home?

White is possibly the number one paint colour people choose for decorating their home.

It brightens interior spaces and gives the impression of space, but it’s important to choose the right shade of white as certain shades can leave a room looking stark and bare.

It’s also important to consider how much natural light the room receives and the style of the furniture and furnishings.

Cool whites, for instance, feature a blue or black base and are especially suited to rooms that receive plenty of natural light due to their ability to defuse bright natural light.

Cool whites are ideal for modern décors and minimalistic interior styles.

Warm whites, on the other hand, feature a red, brown or yellow base and are perfect for creating a cosy atmosphere.

Warm whites work well with natural and earthy shades and are a great option for rustic décors and traditional interior styles.

Colourtrend Paint, Crown Paint and Farrow and Ball all have a wide selection of white paints for you to choose from, so don’t forget to take a few samples home before you make your final decision.
