A full-scale remodel is a surefire way to completely transform a home. But, let's imagine that you only have enough in your budget for a few cans of paint. In our book, a fresh, new color can be almost as transformative as a top-to-bottom renovation. But with so many brands and palettes available, where do you even start?

Benjamin Moore paint colors are particularly beloved, and for good reason. They're equal parts cool and classic and range from tried-and-true neutrals to hues that touch upon the trendiest colors of the year. They've even shared their most popular paint colors, that are widely used by some of the most recognizable faces in design.

From clean tones of white to more adventurous hues, Benjamin Moore paint colors have you covered when it comes to refreshing any space. Scroll on to see our picks.

1. Classic Gray

For white walls with an oh-so-subtle hint of gray, look no further than Benjamin Moore's Classic Gray. It'll work in a huge variety of rooms, like this stylish nook designed by Julie Howard. And thanks to a generous-sized window and a pendant hanging from the ceiling, this cozy corner is the perfect spot to catch up on a little reading.

2. Revere Pewter

For a not-quite-cream, not-quite-white look in your space, look to Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter. We're drawn to it for its ability to add just enough warmth to a space while still serving as a neutral. This floor-to-ceiling fireplace surround in a bathroom belonging to Shauna of The House of Silver Lining is a picture-perfect example.

3. White Dove

Shea of Studio McGee went with the Benjamin Moore paint color White Dove for the interiors of this home, which was an impeccable choice. It's an airy, polished shade that won't go out of style anytime soon. Pair with warm wood and soft textures to complete the sophisticated look.

4. Saybrook Sage

Maybe you're aiming for a small pop of color in your space. In this case, we highly recommend Benjamin Moore's Saybrook Sage. Peaceful and pleasing to the eye, this hue is ideal in a small bathroom, as proven in this space designed by Andy and Candis of Old Home Love.

5. Hale Navy

Among Benjamin Moore paint colors, Hale Navy is a cult favorite. Simply type it into Pinterest and a near-dizzying array of rooms will appear featuring the dramatic shade. Praised for its ability to add just enough depth to a room without overpowering things, it works especially well on an accent wall, seen in this home office belonging to Brooke and Henry of Plank and Pillow.

6. Simply White

Maybe you're envisioning a no-frills space. Or, perhaps you've chosen a wallpaper pattern that will look its best when matched up with basic white walls. Here, we'll recommend the Benjamin Moore paint color Simply White, a shade seen in this entryway styled by Kristina Lynne. Add bold contrast by pairing with black accents.

7. Kendall Charcoal

Benjamin Moore's Kendall Charcoal is a paint color that looks gorgeous pretty much anywhere, but we particularly enjoy it in farmhouse spaces. The dark-yet-traditional hue creates a nice juxtaposition when paired with pastoral whites, a palette seen in this dining room belonging to Robert and Lauren of Bless'er House.

8. Wrought Iron

Sometimes, all you need is a newly-painted kitchen island to take your cook space to the next level. It's a fact that's confirmed in this kitchen design by Amber Lewis of Amber Interiors. Swathed in the Benjamin Moore paint color Wrought Iron, the island immediately stands out and looks lovely with cognac leather bar stools.
