How does one decide on the right white when Benjamin Moore has over a 100 of them? With so many to choose from it can be a little overwhelming to pick one that is just right. Finding the perfect white for your kitchen or bathroom cabinets, your furniture project, the trim in your home or for your walls, all starts with the undertones. There are cool blue whites, warm yellow whites, purple whites, green whites etc. Here are my Top 4 Whites from Benjamin Moore. CC-50 White Down – This is such a beautiful warm creamy white. It’s the perfect white to add a bit of warmth to a room if used on the walls. It looks great on cabinets and is the perfect trim colour for darker coloured walls. CC – 65 Chantilly Lace – this is a true white. If you compare any other white to this one you will see the undertones in the other whites. I use it the most out of all the whites. You can’t go wrong with this white and It’s the perfect trim colour. Chantilly Lace is also a great choice for cabinets and it works well with Carrera Marble. I painted this corner cabinet in Chantilly Lace. LOVE it! CC – 40 Cloud White – this is probably the most used white in all of Benjamin Moore whites. It right between white and cream. It looks great with lighter warmer shades like Palladian Blue (Benjamin Moore) So pretty! Cloud white is perfect for furniture like dressers and night stands because it goes with both cool and warm tones. It’s a lovely for kitchen cabinets. It’s perfect for walls since it has a creaminess to it and is not too cool. AF – 5 Frostine – This white has an icy blue-green undertone which makes it crisp and clean. It’s the perfect white with any cool colour pallet. Frostine is the trim colour in my entire house and my fireplace mantle and It goes really well with white marble. Well I hope this helps narrow your choices down a bit. What is your favorite white and why?
