White is the most versatile shade you can have in your home. It is unique in its ability to brighten up a space to make it feel larger and can adapt to changing trends and styles in your home. We’ve gathered up 13 of the best tips to use to get more white in your home and take advantage of all the crisp beauty it has to offer. Whiteout conditions ahead!

1. White out your storage

An easy way to add white to your home is to have cabinetry or storage shelves in the same shade as your walls. This storage fades out into the background and it’s a perfect way to hide your storage in plain sight.

2. White fuels imagination

Kids bedrooms are usually clad in primary colours. These shades don’t match the rest of the house and kids grow quickly out of this decor. Try using white in the kids room! It gives kids some breathing room to use their imaginations.

3. Invisible structural elements

Exposed and visible structural elements are great for an industrial look. If you want to lighten up the look of your house try painting them white. They will become a more subtle design element in your home.

4. Classic bathroom style

White is the classic choice for bathrooms. It is a crisp, clean look that doesn’t go out of style. For an elegant look, pair white with black and other neutral tones in the bathroom.

Nothing says sweet dreams quite like fresh, white bed sheets. Colourful bedding is great for adding personality to a room. If you want a classic look that will calm you down after a long day, we recommend going all white.

7. Expand your corridors

Narrow hallways can be opened up with fresh white tones. By dialling down dark elements in the hall and amping up the white space, you can feel the space expand just a little. This is the oldest trick in the white book.

8. White and fluffy

White textures like faux fur and sheepskin rugs are a subtle way to add natural elements to your home. Fluffy rugs are great in the bedroom, but you might loose some of your breakfast in the high pile if you put one in the dining area.

9. Scandinavian influence
