The interior design world has often embraced white as a go-to colour. White is perfect for interiors due to it’s versatility and ability to brighten even the smallest areas of your home. However, white has a lot more to it than just being at the lightest end of the colour spectrum. Here are our 4 ways to make white work for you.
Accentuate Period Characteristics
If you are living in a period home, then the chances are that you will have skirting boards, mouldings and cornices. Keeping these as white as possible accentuates the periodical history of your home and keeps it looking very fresh and airy.
Make Your Kitchen Seem Bigger
If your kitchen is wanting in size, white units and appliances will give the illusion of more space. White units also give a clean, crisp look to your kitchen that will create a timeless kitchen environment.
Light Your Basement
Basements are usually the darkest parts of the house, so if you are going for a basement conversion or renovation, then you might want to go for white or light colours to create a more inviting space. Whitewashing the staircase is a great technique that will help reflect much needed natural light into your basement.
Even Out Irregularities
In many properties, there are imperfections and uneven walls that can be irksome to look at. These irregularities often occur with age, neglect, budget or even design. However, as a temporary measure, to combat their unpleasant sight a lick of white paint can be incredibly effective in obscuring these from view.
