No two whites are the same. White walls might seem like a common wall colour, but you’d be surprised at just how many different shades there are, with every variant conveying a different mood. If you’re stumped, find out how to choose the most suitable white paint for your home here:
1. White paint is not exactly white
White paint contains traces of other colours that give it personality – these are known as undertones. Broadly speaking, cool whites have blue undertones while warm whites have yellow or brown undertones. To figure out the undertone, hold a swatch or paint chip next to a sheet of white paper.
