When building a new custom home, you will undoubtably need to choose paint colors for your interior walls, doors and trim. This can be daunting especially when you consider all the variables. For instance, let’s look at what might be considered one of the easier colors to select, the color white.

Don’t be fooled, this might be one of the harder colors, white isn’t one hue but many. There are cool whites, warm whites and pure whites. White paint can have bluish, reddish, yellowish, and even greenish undertones. If you mix a warm white with a bright white, you might not like the outcome. Let’s say you purchase new, bright white cabinets for your kitchen and decide to have them installed all the way up to the ceiling. It is very important to get the exact color match of your white cabinet doors since the trim will be framing out the top of all of your cabinets. If you place a gray white on top of a bright white cabinet, you will not be happy with the results.

If you find a white paint color you like, hold the samples against a sheet of white paper. The complexity of its color will reveal itself to you. Once you get the color home, paint a large panel on several different walls, the same color will appear differently on different walls in the same room depending on the amount of light on that particular wall. The amount of natural and artificial light in the room impacts the tone of the walls as well.
