Choosing the best exterior white paint

Growing up I remember a lot of house exteriors were white or shades of - plain, simple and easy.  As time has gone on it's a little harder to find white house exteriors.  Now that we have so much choice of colour, and we have grown a little braver with our colour choices there just aren't so many white exteriors around any more.  In part it may be because there are so many whites out there now it's become too hard to choose so we have done the hard work for you by choosing our 5 favourite exterior white paint colours!

White is still a lovely choice for an exterior.  It suits most styles of architecture from classic to ultra modern, country and coastal but we just seem to have forgotten about it.  When paired with contrasting trim and lush greenery it has a clean fresh feel.

Our favourite 5 exterior whites are:

  • Dulux Beige Royal
  • Murobond Badger 50%
  • Colorbond Surfmist
  • Taubmans Pebble Bay 1/4 
  • Murobond Raw Earth 25%
