Now, we have no objection to color. But there’s something about a crisp, white room that just makes everything feel bright and clean. However, with hundreds of options out there, each with their own undertones, it can be a little paralyzing to try and pick one. We’ve got some of the most popular shades here to help you pick the perfect interior white paint for your space.

Benjamin Moore

Simply White, OC-117

Named the 2016 Benjamin Moore color of the year, Simply White still stands as a great option today. The shade is warm and bright, with just barely a yellow undertone.

White Dove, OC-17

White Dove is a nice creamy shade of white, for those wanting a softer look. It’s almost an exact match to Sherwin Williams Alabaster, if you have a brand preference between the two.

Chantilly Lace, OC-65

Chantilly Lace is a really pretty, cool white that can help balance out warm tones in rooms that get a lot of direct sunlight.

Swiss Coffee, OC-45

This white will make your room as warm and cozy as the name sounds. Swiss Coffee is soft, bright and cheerful.

Sherwin Williams

Pure White, SW 7005

Pure White is an incredibly popular shade from Sherwin Williams, and a safe bet for any space in your home. The paint has only the faintest hint of tint to keep it from coming off to sterile and icy, so you are sure to get a crisp look.

Snowbound, SW 7004

This is another good cool white with just a slight touch of gray. Snowbound also contrasts well with black and other cool dark tones.


Polar Bear, 75

Polar Bear is guaranteed to make your space feel clean and fresh. It’s a balanced shade of white that you can use from trim to ceiling for a bright, open look.
