And that, my friends, is difficult.
I know people talk about it all the time - how there are a million versions of white and to the untrained eye, they are all white. Of course, we
But what one is right?
Here are some whites I've read about and/or used in my house already:
Benjamin Moore "Cloud White" (top half) and Benjamin Moore "Chantilly Lace" (bottom half)
Benjamin Moore "Chantilly Lace" (the after pic)
Behr "Ultra Pure White"
So there you have it. Lots of whites that look similar. Any suggestions on what to pick? Should we take this time to also do the stairs? That might be too much, but should we go ahead and paint the spindles and the side trim (right side, going up the stairs)?
If there is any value in knowing this, the whites we currently have in our house are as follows:
BM Cloud White: Trim in hallway and dining room/living room. It is going to be repainted because I made a rookie mistake and painted the trim in matte.
BM Chantilly Lace: Trim in the basement and basement bath. I prefer this to Cloud White for trim as it is 'whiter'
Para "Whitewash White": Upstairs bathroom moulding and trim (as you can see from the pic above). This seems similar to Chantilly Lace in that it is really white. I like that.
Should we just pick a white we already use? Should we have a different white on the walls vs on the trim?
Here is a pic of the hallway a long time ago for your reference:
