Should You Paint Your Bedroom White? There are so many different whites, in fact, you can have a whole color chart of paint for them to choose from. Depending on your paint brand preference. if you are refreshing your bedroom, nothing looks better than fresh white paint.
White creates a background that you can add almost anything. This sits well with anything from antique furniture to a totally modern design. The first thing to do is to get out your color charts and select your contrasting ‘whites’ for walls, ceiling, and trims.
Use a warmer white on the walls and a contrasting Casper white for trims and ceiling. This way you can add some raw layered textiles to your room.
If you are selling, you are looking for broad appeal in your interiors and styling, classic and elegant. With a lot of whites, nothing that will stand out too much. The other thing the buyer will be looking for in the bedroom is bright white Planter Shutters that will allow plenty of light in when open.
Curtains are out of fashion in bedrooms. As they are dust catchers that have to be laundered frequently to keep them clean.
If you are having any trouble with your all-white color scheme, consult a color designer at the paint shop. All paints start out as white, and then various tints are added in to give variations in color.
When you have decided on your bedroom white color scheme if possible get it painted professionally. It won’t take the painter very long and it will be done properly, and once the paint has dried you will be able to work on styling the rest of the room.
Once you start on a room, a total makeover is in order, and you don’t have to spend too much to get it looking perfect. Your bedroom is a sanctuary so keep it looking cool, calm, and clean.
A few other things to consider doing to give your room a lift are.
If you have a North facing room, it will change how the white paint looks. As opposed to a South facing room where the light will be softer. Also, our perception of color can also change with time. You don’t want a white that will age to yellow. It is important that the paint lasts for a few years.
A white bedroom is extremely restful and should help you to get a better night’s sleep.
White will make the ceilings look higher, and the walls look bigger, and a white interior helps to sell a house. Your house will need repainting every 5 to 7 years. If you have a woodfire in the house definitely repaint every 5 years as smoke escapes and discolors the paintwork.
You look at your almost perfect white bedroom, but it still needs some finishing touches. if you have completed a white room for a young girl, fairy lights look great. Just use Christmas lights strung around the ceiling, and apart from a bed lamp, this is perfect lighting for a pre-teen.
It will look gorgeous at night with the lights on. An adult room will require a chair, purchase a white cane chair to set off the lovely white space, and place a crystal vase of white roses on the bedside table.
You now have the perfect bedroom, so take some photos, then you can be reminded of how lovely it looked when completed.
