How to use “white” right when decorating your interior

Color is everything when it comes to interior decorating. It’s one of the most important elements to consider. When most people think of color, they exclude the color "white" which is unfortunate because there’s so much you can do with a white color scheme. Here are some tips for using the color "white" when interior decorating.

Choose the right white paint

A room painted white can either look crisp and fresh or stark and cold. The difference comes down to lighting. Before you choose the white paint, think about the room’s orientation to the sun. A clear white paint that isn’t too warm or too cold is ideal for a room that faces away from the noonday sun. In a north facing room, especially in a climate that gets snow, a clear white room will look chilly so go with a warmer off-white paint color. In a south-facing room use a cool off-white with gray undertones to reduce glare since that room will get a lot of intense sunlight.

Use white in the bedroom

A room painted white can look pretty bland if you don’t have the right elements to pull off the look. You can paint exposed wood framing white to get a charming, rustic look. Shiny, metallic surfaces or items in a room that’s painted white makes the space look sleek and modern but remember that a little goes a very long way.

Use white in the kitchen

A kitchen that is all white will look cold and unwelcoming. By accenting all of the white with some stainless steel appliances and some warm wood. Wood always provides a touch of warmth so some nice hardwood floors in the kitchen can offset the white.

Use white in the bathroom

Too much white in the bathroom makes the space appear sterile and even clinical. You don’t want guests to feel like they’re in a hospital giving a sample. Beautiful, elegant fixtures for the tub and sink can help reduce the clinical feel and wood flooring can help as well just like in the kitchen.

Use white in the open spaces

White is ideal for open spaces because in an open space, you can usually see into several different rooms simultaneously and the white will pull it all together and make the space seem even more open than it already is. Also, white goes with everything so even if you’re going for a different color scheme or design theme in each room, white walls will be ideal. A touch of color in any room painted white will really stand out and provide interesting contrast which is always good.

Use white for the home’s exterior

For the home’s exterior, you want to go easier with the white. Use it as an accent color to bring out other features. White trim is elegant and it makes the home look a little bigger from the outside. White stucco is a good choice for a home in a tropical location.
