As you trawl through Instagram, Pinterest or home interior blogs in recent months, they’re all suggesting the same thing: a white interior is one of the hottest trends in home interior design.
Well, whether it’s white or one of its many variations on the colour wheel, it’s the best and easiest choice for walls, especially if you love experimenting with your interior. It’s timeless, chic and non-offensive.
Be it your bedroom, living room, kitchen, or bathroom; white works on everything from the floor to ceiling.
Here’s why an all-white interior can be the best thing you do to your home:
1. White Creates The Perfect Canvas For Your Creativity.
Love colourful throw pillows, eclectic textiles, and cute rugs? You can have it all if you have an all-white interior.
Like an empty canvas, white walls give you the freedom to unleash your creativity. Pile on the patterns and artwork! Change things up as often as you like! Toss in any decorative items and it will always go amazingly well with white.
The picture above shows how simple wooden details spice up the charm of an all-white interior. Note the dark chocolate-coloured chairs, door painted in two wooden shades, and the light-coloured cupboard.
2. It Makes Your Space Look Clean And Fresh.
White is pleasing to the eyes. It is the symbol of simplicity and cleanliness. Painting all your walls white will make your house look clean, organised and fresh.
Look at the image above! The home office looks so organised and clean due to its white interior. It goes a long way in masking any untidiness that’s already present.
3. It Brightens Up Your House
Your home should welcome sunlight, especially in Singapore. White serves that very purpose.
White is a highly-reflective colour. It amplifies natural lighting through windows and doors in your rooms. It can also boost the amount of natural light that enters your house while keeping it cool.
Go for a soft white, or choose a cold toned one. It’s all up to you.
4. Your House Looks Bigger
White is a must-have if you own a small space but want to make it feel bigger.
Dark interiors make rooms feel smaller but white can make even a small space look larger and more open. It’s because white diffuses light better than any other colour, making the room appear larger and creating a more serene feel.
5. Ideal For Minimalist Style Rooms
Do you believe that less is more? If so, white can be the best colour to augment the beauty of your space.
Check out the white inspired bedroom above to understand what we mean. Designed by Cozy Ideas, this room wonderfully combines the simplicity and charm of white walls and ceilings with a polished wooden floor.
Note the neutral-coloured blinds and side table by the window, bedspread of purple shade that blends well with white shade and cupboards on one wall.
6. Timeless And Easy To Maintain
Timeless chic and endlessly adaptable, white interiors will never go out of style. It goes well with everything, from glossy modern architectural spaces to Scandinavian minimalism. Ironically, you will never get bored of white interiors as they give you endless opportunities to experiment with your creativity.
Moreover, with snow-white walls, you don’t have to face the trouble of going over every single panel. Just a little touch-up every now and then will be enough!
Contrary to popular belief, white also happens to be the perfect shade to break up expensive wall treatments, great patterns, or clashing shades of paint in a room.
