While white interior walls may have fallen out of fashion, a white exterior remains a top choice, according to Fixr’s 2024 Paint and Color Trends Report. For the analysis, the home improvement site polled 71 home stagers and interior designers. Nearly half of the experts agreed that white is the best color for exteriors when selling a home.

“When selecting white paint for your home’s exterior, consider your home’s style, the surrounding landscape, and the neighborhood aesthetic,” Jodi Peterman, owner of Elizabeth Erin Designs, says. “Crisp white can make a home look fresh and modern, but choosing a shade that complements other exterior elements like roofing, trim, and stone features is essential.”

Avoid a stark white as it can appear too harsh, she advises. Instead, opt for a softer white with warm or cool undertones that enhance your home’s architecture. Also, observe how the white looks in different lighting throughout the day, Peterman says. Two of her favorite white exterior paint colors are Benjamin Moore White Dove and Sherwin Williams Greek Villa, which has a slight green undertone.

Of course, a white exterior can be associated with certain styles of houses, from modern to farmhouse or coastal, so if it’s not a match for your home, you might want to consider one of these 36 welcoming exterior colors instead.
