The Best White Paints

Whether you are looking to build, refresh or sell your home - you can never go wrong with a good neutral, like white! But, nowadays, there are just so many versions of white. Some of the great reasons to choose a white are:

It lightens and brightens any space - it’s a known fact the natural light and an open / airy feeling help to sell a home. 
You can change the entire look of your room simply by changing your accent colors, metal finishes and textures. Keeping your paint color neutral and changing out accent pillows and blankets can work perfectly, especially if you like to keep up with the styles.
With all of the different variations - you can choose a warm white, such as Dove White by Benjamin Moore, which keeps the room from being too stark.
