In the 1920s, titanium dioxide was first used as a paint pigment. Its brightness and opacity have made titanium dioxide the most widely used white pigment in the coatings industry, but it has also changed the character of "white" house paint from a creamy tone to a brilliant, high contrast shade. This modern white is appropriate for houses from the 1940s onward, but for an older house, a more modulated white is preferred.
