Looking for the perfect white paint color? Let’s talk about Sherwin Williams Incredible White and if it might be right for your home!
Picking paint colors is a lot of work! If you want a light, bright color with a little more pigment to it than a plain white, you are probably looking at a TON of off white options.
Off whites are great for adding a little depth to your space but still feeling clean and bright.
However, you have to pick the right color with the right undertones.

Incredible White is in the off-white paint color family.
Light Reflectance Value
Light Reflective Value is the measurement of how much light a color bounces around. This is on a scale of 0 to 100 with 0 being pure black and 100 being pure white.
Anything with an LRV between 73-82 is considered “off white”. So, Incredible White is actually at the darker end of the off white range.

RGB describes the amount of each color – red, green, and blue – present in a color. This is on a scale of 0 to 255 for each color. This is basically the color mix to make the color!
Incredible White is a warm toned paint color. However, it doesn’t read as yellow or golden. The undertones are more taupe – which means that it can read slightly pink or purple in certain lighting (often warmer, southern facing light).
This is why it’s super important to swatch colors and look at them day and night before committing!
If your room is north facing, this color will feel less warm and more neutral. In a south facing room, it will feel even warmer.

My first choice for white paint colors is to actually paint the trim the same color as the walls – in this case, Incredible White – just use a semigloss finish on the trim.
This gives a very soft, delicate tone-on-tone look.
For higher contrast, you will want to pair Incredible White with a crisp, bright white trim color. Anything creamy will look dirty next to Incredible White.

Incredible White FAQs
Is incredible white cool or warm?
Incredible White has warm, gray undertones. It is however very neutral and does not read as yellow at all.
Is Incredible White good for an exterior?
Incredible White is OK for an exterior but not usually a top choice or super popular color pick.
Remember that exterior light is going to be very bright and will wash colors out a bit. So, this color will look less off white and more white white outside.
If your home faces north (or east in the afternoons or west in the mornings) the color could look a bit pink or purple, so be SURE to swatch it and check it out day and night before committing.
