What makes SW Extra White a popular white?
Extra White is one of the most popular white paints out there. Lots of these whites have names that lead you to believe they are the best, brightest, or “whitest” white around. You’ll see names like Extra, Super, Ultra, Pure, and even Simply White to sort through (all of which we’ll compare in more detail later). And guess what? None of these are actually the brightest white available! Don’t worry, we’ll talk about that particular color too.
So what makes Extra White such a good choice if it’s not truly the whitest? Well, for your home you typically want white paints that are slightly muted and have undertones that complement other colors in your space. This prevents the walls from appearing too stark, cold, or blindingly bright. So Extra White’s popularity comes from the fact that it’s not actually that extra.
It’s a classic white paint that looks bright, clean, and colorless in your space, without overstepping into being stark or sterile. It’s a safe and strong choice loved by designers, DIYers, and home builders alike.
