5 Ways To Make The Most Of Your White Backdrop

Since HDBs are usually smaller in comparison to landed properties, their color schemes tend to be light and breezy to emulate a sense of spaciousness. Most designers tend to prefer a white backdrop so that they can give the HDB an illusory quality of openness by design. However, white hue looks positively flat and boring if it is not complemented by the right contrast. Further, let’s look at 5 ideas you can use to make your white backdrop seem charming and interesting.


1. Pattern contrast

Pattern contrast basically means that you use some carefully selected patterns in a focal area of your interior design to create some visual contrast. However, it is important to make sure that the pattern you use complements the overall theme of your interior design, and is chosen in complementary colors that may bring out the best of your space.


2. Dousing backdrop

Sometimes, it is essential that you choose a contrasting color to paint a full accent wall to balance out the whites. This color can either be on the ‘pastel’ end of the spectrum or the classy ‘dark’ end of the spectrum depending on the style of your interior design. If you’re going for a soft and pleasant theme then go for pastels. If you’re going for a moody aura then go for a dark color scheme.


3. Wooden trimming

A great way to make the most of your white themed backdrop is to complement it with wooden trimming. Wood has a way of complementing white in the most organic, natural and comfortable ways. You can use bits and pieces of its accents to create contrast in your monotonous white themed interior designs.


4. Clever lighting

Since a white backdrop is basically a blank canvas, you can use anything and everything to make it seem interesting. Various kinds of lighting can be used to create a dual ambiance in a single space.
