Painting a room is a big decision—after all, it's a choice you'll probably have to live with for years. And while sometimes a bold, unexpected hue is the right choice for a room, other times you want a color that's guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser. Here's one way to find a paint color you (and everyone else) will love: check out the best-selling paint colors, according to top paint companies. Luckily, all of the major paint brands below have revealed their most popular and top-selling colors. From a pretty shade of off-white, to a best-selling blue, you can't go wrong with one of these cult-favorite hues. Those tough paint color decisions just got a lot easier.

Glidden

This soft, warm white makes a beautiful, neutral wall color, and is also a popular trim color. If you're looking for a shade of white that's creamy rather than crisp, Antique White is a winner. For a home with a more traditional rather than modern design, this timeless hue is fail-proof.
