Finding a true white can be tough, but luckily there are plenty of Valspar white paint colors to choose from. I spent some time searching for the best 6 colors and will review them today. Finding warm paint can be tricky so I reviewed a few. To see them with our greige kitchen cabinets, click here.
Picking paint colors is a task all of its own, which is why I wrote about it a while ago. I also detailed the true cost of a kitchen remodel here. However, I think it’s a topic you can’t discuss enough, which is why I compiled a quick video on how to pick paint colors with three simple steps, which included these supplies: paint brushes, paint sample boards, and Valspar paint.
Now, onto the 6 paint colors I chose: Promenade, Swiss Coffee, Bistro White, Snow Cap, Dove White, and Du Jour. [Spoiler alert – we used Du Jour in our kitchen although I loved Swiss Coffee paint too!] I picked up all paint samples from my local Lowe’s, and I will tell you I was super impressed that all samples matched the Valspar paint chips super well. From cool tones to warmer whites, let’s take a look at them all! And while we’re at it, here are a few supplies you may want:
Valspar Promenade (7006-3)
Promenade was the most interesting color to me when testing all of the Valspar white paint colors. At first glance, I couldn’t tell if there was a hint of green, yellow or blue, but there was definitely a strong undertone. I decided it’s a bright(er) yellow undertone that peeks through. I envision this color doing super well in a child’s bedroom with lots of bright colors surrounding it. Liz from Love Grows Wild also reviewed Promenade. I can see it doing well with natural light.
Valspar Swiss Coffee (7002-16)
Valspar Swiss Coffee is such an amazing color from Valspar! I’ll be honest, I did not discover it until after our home renovations finished. I wish I knew about it before, but I’m keeping it in my back pocket for any other work. It’s a really pretty bright, warm white and maybe the truest white of the bunch. Architectural Digest calls it one of the most popular whites.
Valspar Bistro White (7006-4)
Of the Valspar white paint colors, Bistro White is one of my favorites. It’s a bright white. Compared to Swiss Coffee and Du Jour, it looks like it has a hint of pink to it. Just a hint though. It certainly makes a great trim color as referenced by Chloe from Boxwood Avenue’s review. It is a warm white paint (which I love), but not creamy. It has that white crisp feel to it.
Valspar Snow Cap (7003-8)
Snow Cap is another warm white paint. Clearly, I gravitate towards warm white paint colors. I found it to be the creamiest of the six colors I picked. I think it would be a stellar color for an off white cabinet color like the Cove Model Tour from Studio McGee.
Valspar Dove White (7002-7)
Dove White is lighter than Snow Cap, but offers a similar creaminess. It’s another warmer white and is a great choice for a room with lots of white furniture and features. A creamier white, like Dove White, will offer a softness to the room.
Valspar Du Jour (7002-6)
Du Jour is a beautiful, bright white. I chose this color for all of the trim in our house and our kitchen. I love how beautiful and crisp the color is. It feels like a vibrant and pure white. It looks beautiful in natural light. Want to see a sneak peek of our kitchen?!

Valspar White Paint Summary
I loved all of the colors for specific needs. In my opinion, here’s how I’d use each one:
- Promenade | Rooms with lots of color
- Swiss Coffee | Rooms with gray accents or a room where you want the white walls to pop (my fav!!)
- Bistro White | A feminine room or girl’s nursery
- Snow Cap | Rooms with brown or beige undertones
- Dove White | All white rooms
- Du Jour | Similar to Swiss Coffee I’d use this in rooms where you want the white wall to pop
Ultimately, picking the right color is a personal choice and is greatly affected by the light and features of the room. I always recommend getting samples and holding paint samples up to walls in different types of sunlight throughout the day. Live with it and make sure it’s something you want!
