Light colors are a real find for small rooms. We have repeatedly advised to design one-room apartments by them, as they visually expand the space. If a few years ago, beige was a favorite among light colors, but now this place has been taken by white. The tendency in the design of rooms in white has been observed for over ten years, but now it has become most prevalent.
White color has a dual form. On the one hand, it is monochrome and easily in harmony with other colors. But on the other hand, it is complicated and requires an elaborate approach. You can create a white interior in several ways:
- absolutely white interior (walls, floor, furniture);
- white interior with floor and furniture (fully or partially) wooden texture;
- white interior with bright details.
It is hard to decorate a room completely in white color, since it is necessary to expend quite a few efforts to search for materials and suitable furniture. Difficulties will arise in the selection of shades. Not all shades of white will be combined with each other, but this interior looks very interesting, which undoubtedly corresponds to the effort expended.
The wooden texture will emphasize all the sophistication of white. Choosing light doors, walls and ceiling, you will visually increase the height of the room, which is great for apartments with low ceilings. The dark floor in the white interior will expand your room, but you should avoid the wooden textures of orange hue. They will steal all the elegance of white. It can be said that the choice of wood texture flooring (laminate or parquet) depends only on personal preferences.
White color with bright details is suitable for those who just seem white boring. Choose one or two additional colors. A good option is to combine white with black or gray and one bright color. Furniture and all accessories for the home pick these three colors. But do not forget that white color should be present not only in the decoration, but also in the furniture.
White color makes it possible to combine several bright colors, not allowing the interior to look tasteless. It is also an interesting way to divide space into functional zones. Pick one element of bright color for each zone. This option is distinguished by its dynamics and modernity.
White interior rules
The white interior is quite a bold move. First of all, not everyone will risk making their home completely in this color. Despite its apparent simplicity, white color is complex. To understand what is its complexity, you can, remembering what he is. White color is a combination of all colors, so the design in this way requires a special approach. Only by adhering to these rules, you can create an interior that will not deliver psychological discomfort.
These rules are obligatory for completely white interiors, and are possible with the option of combining color with wooden texture. Options for combining white with other colors do not have such psychological pressure as a completely white interior, so these rules are optional for them.
Rule # 1: Invoicing
If all the forms in the white interior are smooth and concise, it will create a feeling of frozen space. It will be hard enough for a long time in it, so the white interior requires texture. The whole essence of this rule is that various textures and reliefs cast shadows. Accordingly, the white interior comes to life and no longer seems boring to you.
The larger and more varied textures, the better. Use soft fleecy carpets, glass tables, various multi-level surfaces. Furniture should also comply with this rule; the more varied and bold the shape, the more it will fit the white interior. For example, for the white interior is perfect design in the style of Provence.
White color in the interior is ideal for a one-room apartment. It reflects light better than other colors, which means it increases the space better. In addition, it is the most versatile color. If you suddenly get bored with your white interior, you can easily change it by placing color accents - changing the curtains, hanging pictures. And the apartment is radically changed. Do not be afraid of marquis white. It is exposed to pollution just as much as other light colors.
