White or Bright WHite shutter color?

Posted by jamshed (My Page) on

I am in the process of ordering new vinyl shutters for the front door of my Cape Cod . There are two choices of white - White (001) or Bright White (117).

I replaced the door trim with Azek. The Bright White matches the Azek, but I plan on painting the Azek white.

Question: What is the most common white exterior trim paint likely to match - White or Bright White???

This may sound like a silly question, but I am not at the house now, and would like to order the shutters to be delivered in time for my next visit.

If you don't get many responses here, you might try the Home Decorating forum.

If I were doing this, I would probably go with the Bright White and then decide whether I need to paint the door.

I find that I can differentiate between shades of white inside, but take them outside and they all look the same.
