Shades of White Part 1: Cool Whites
Painted white cabinetry has a timeless look and feel. Using white opens up so many options when it comes to pulling together a beautiful palette for a room. Do you opt for all white, a mix of shades of white, or white with pops of color?
The combinations that you can create are endless.Varying shades of white fall into two categories: warm and cool. If the color scheme includes blues, grays or blue-greens and white paint is part of the equation, a cool white can look stunning.;
Dura Supreme finishes include two shades of white that are definitely considered cool: White and Pearl. Linen White is a new addition to the Dura Supreme paint offering and based on what other colors it is paired with, it can appear either cool or warm.
White is our brightest true white, almost a snow white that pairs beautifully with the dark blues and grays.
Pearl is a gray/white, sort of a chameleon color, on its own looks white, paired with a darker gray it appears as a light gray.
Linen White is a recent addition to the paint offering, a white with the slightest violet tone. Not as bright as White, Linen White complements the gray-based stains including, Smoke, Caraway, as well as the darker gray paints.
Creating a calm, cool and collected space can be easy with the right shade of white.
