19 Off White Paint Colors for a Fresh Look

by | Nov 28, 2023 | Interior Painting

At Absolute Painting & Power Washing we have seen many color trends come and go over the last 30+ years.  Twenty years ago we saw many bold dark colors being used and many colors and accent walls in various rooms in the home.  Ten years ago we saw more of the gray and tan colors being used on walls with fewer colors being used in the home.  

Recently, lighter colors have taken over and we are painting many different shades of white and off white paint colors on walls.  Most homeowners are keeping it simple and only using one or two colors in the entire home.  Of course, you have hundreds of different white colors to choose from and it can be hard to decide which is the best for your home.

Why We Love Off White Paint Colors

White paint colors can make a space look clean, fresh, and lighter.  The white and off white paint colors have become a very popular choice for interior walls over the past few years.  It is perfect for a modern interior look.  Homeowners bring color into the home with art, furniture, and decor leaving the walls as a blank canvas.  White paint has been the most popular choice for interior doors and trim for many years as it helps your wall color stand out too.
