It’s the most widely used paint color shade, with the most overwhelming amount of hues to choose from! White is a classic and timeless exterior paint color choice for various styles, from Coastal to Rustic and everything in-between. As beautiful as the color white is, it carries tricky undertones that can throw off the color in various lighting. If it’s too bright, you risk blinding drivers passing by, and if it’s too dark, it just looks “muddy.” We’ve rounded up the best white paint colors for exteriors, so you can be sure to have that fresh white house you’ve been dreaming of.

BM OC-117 Simply White

For us, Benjamin Moore Simply White is the chameleon of white paint colors. It looks warm when paired with warm tones and cool when paired with cool tones. It has a softer and warmer undertone in comparison to White Dove.

BM OC-118 Snowfall White

Snowfall White is a beautiful white paint color that’s sophisticated and endlessly versatile. This shade is part of the Off-White Color collection, so it’s not a stark white, but a warm white with depth. It’s the perfect shade of exteriors in a tranquil and serene environments.

BM OC-17 White Dove

At the top of our list and perhaps our most used is Benjamin Moore’s, White Dove. This softly shaded white has a warmer undertone but doesn’t come off yellow. It’s a light and luminous white that we simply can’t stay away from!

BM OC-65 Chantilly Lace

If you’re looking for a pure and crisp white, Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore is our go-to. This shade has minimal undertones to the eye, so it’s a wonderful multi-purpose option if you’re looking to use it in a vast majority of the spaces both inside and outside of your home.

SW 7005 Pure White

As its name suggests, Sherwin-Williams Pure White is a crisp white but softer than Chantilly Lace. It’s a bright white paint color that’s not overly stark, and it also doesn’t hold any obvious undertones. If white is what you want, white is what you get with this color!
