White is a highly versatile hue and can complement almost any material or shade. Therefore, it can always be found in an interior design, although its incarnations vary from space to space. Since it can be applied in so many ways, today we’ll be looking at all the interesting ways that you can complement white walls with different ideas. Let’s take a look:
1. In capacity of backsplash
A white kitchen backsplash may sound boring, but it’s really one of the best décor choices you can make. Getting a white middle means that you can experiment with different textures on the under and over-cabinets – even the floors. The trick is to make sure that whatever you choose complements yet contrasts with the breezy nature of whites in an elegant and attractive manner.
2. Experimenting with neutrals
The neutral colour palette has already carved itself a nice little niche in the interior design genre, but it complements a white foreground the best. So, if you have space that’s just a white canvas, you can embellish and decorate it with various items in neutral hues for brilliant contrast. You’ll definitely end up with an elegant, understated space that is soothing and comfortable to use.
3. Material texture
The white hue itself can be used to deliver contrast within the ambiance if you pick the right materials. For example, white subway tiles are a great way to give a simple wall more character. Similarly, textured Carrera marble laminates are an excellent choice to emulate a sense of classic elegance in a space.
4. Even wall panels work
If you’re working with a space that features a white-on-white colour scheme, you can introduce some contrast by using tried and true techniques like wall paneling. Tall strips of wall panels used on the feature wall (or even the wardrobe) can make the overall space look so much more interesting and unique – especially when you have very little contrast to work with.
5. With furniture
And lastly, you can complement your white interiors with the right furniture choices to get an excellent ambiance. If the walls are white, the furniture can be high-contrast to deliver a livable space. The living room design in this image is a great example – the sofa and background browns adhere to the whole white ambiance nicely.
