What do you mean it’s a different White?

While I am looking for color advice for the walls in my living room, I have made a design choice regarding my ceiling. It is going to be White. I am using Home Depot’s BEHR No. 558 Ultra White Ceiling Paint in a flat finish.

As you can see there are many shades of white. Where I have cut in is the Ceiling white. The previous wall and ceiling color was Glidden Professional Finish Ultra Build White, which in my opinion fails on all counts as a rolling paint. It has a gray tinge, it is a thin paint, doesn’t roll well, and requires at least 2 coats to cover. May work okay in a spray gun, but I don’t use them.

Home Depot’s Behr Brand is really great paint. It has good body, lays down well, and when properly applied covers in one coat. I haven’t used any other paint since my first can. Worth every cent you pay for it. And a lot of times it goes on sale making it an even better value.
Highly Recommended.

    You are comparing apples to oranges. Ultra Build is an economic paint. Glidden carries fives different lines and grades of paint at the Home Depot. Ultra Build is a thin paint that is suggested to be sprayed on. Did you notice the price difference when you bought the two? It has an off white tint to it as to not draw your eye directly to a bright white ceiling. Different products for different projects. Try one of Gliddens many other lines for your ceiling and you will get a much deffernt outcome.
