What is the Color Category?

WHITE – because of its Value of 9.59 and Chroma of 0.23.

Let’s call it HRW for short. The colors of white that are perceived as being “just white” belong to this Green-Yellow hue family neighborhood.

HRW is no exception. However, under certain light sources and contexts, you can see moments of greenish and/or yellow.

When it comes to all colors of white and off-white, Hue Family and Chroma are the two most important attributes.

Because GY Hue Family indicates it’s highly probably that it’s going to show up as “just white”.

Lower Chroma values – under 0.50 – is a clue that the color has the potential to shift with the inherent quality of light. Which is different from higher Chroma colors that are stronger in colorfulness and as a result have more oomph to stand up to bossy lighting.

Lastly, with HRW it’s smart to choose the Sherwin-Williams product that you want to use FIRST. Because you can’t get this color in any can of paint your want – it has limited availability.

Be sure to ask your paint pro about HRW’s hide. The existing color/substrate and application method matters when you’re painting with a color of white because most of them have poor hide and require multiple coats.

For example, one coat of primer plus two to three coats of HRW is not uncommon. Always buy the top tier paint because that will help with hide.

It’s always best to test. I recommend Samplize Paint Peel & Stick samples because they’re made with real paint.

How do we know how to categorize color? Because we have hue, value, chroma and LRV color notations that describe what colors look like. So, we can easily sort and categorize paint colors:

  1. I’m putting in kitchen cabinets that are this color and was planning to also use HRW as my trim color. Was thinking of staying light on the walls- possible BM sea Pearl. Do you think that would work?

    1. Whooboy. Lots to unpack here.

      HRW is a SW untinted base. The other one is Extra White.

      HRW does not come in SW products that are viable for use on cabinets. Viable being different from ideal. Ideal meaning professional grade cabinet product like Renner or Milesi, etc.

      You may have a pro who will use a pro product and is planning to do a HRW color match. Odds of it being a bang-on match to HRW are not great.

      But let’s say cabinet person does get an acceptable match in the pro product. What are you going to do about the trim – a different product won’t be the same as the cabinets.

      As far as Sea Pearl, it has enough nuance to work with HRW, Extra White, Chantilly Lace, Pure White, PPG’s Delicate White, and probably several more that I can’t think of right now.
