Different people have different opinions and when it comes to paint your house the difference list goes on and on. Many people would say that a room filled with white walls sounds a bit boring. While many people love white walls in their house. Well, we are here to clear all your doubts. White certainly does not have to feel bland. An all-white space can feel fresh, modern, and even a bit daring. You just need to know the right shade of white for your space.
If you are looking for minimal colour, white is a great choice for your wall colour. The beauty of white walls is that they allow you to highlight the furniture and accents in the room and are perfect for showing off artwork. White walls are great if you are planning to sell or rent your home. The clean looking white walls creates a blank slate and helps people envision how to make the space their own. White walls also provide a great backdrop for experimenting with colours in other ways. When you keep the walls classic and neutral, you can use bold colours in your furniture and accent pieces in any combination you love. This is a great way to ease into bright colours and it means you can easily change things up if you find it is not right for you.
For choosing the perfect shade of white for your room, you need to consider the flow of light through the space during the day. Creamier whites, or a blush-toned white are well suited for west-facing rooms. West-facing rooms likely get the best Sun light during the middle of the day. When selecting perfect white colour for your room, think about when you spend most of your time in that room. Mornings are darker in a west-facing room, so your paint colour should have warmer undertones to balance out the greyish light.
As the day goes on, your west-facing room will get warmer as the sun moves from full brightness around noon, with a warm glow as the sun begins to set. For this time of day, go for something with cool undertones, like a blue, green, or even grey-toned white.
When talk about North-facing rooms they never have the full sunlight during the day, and as a result can tend to have a more greyish-toned light. They naturally tend to feel a bit cooler than other rooms. To prevent your room from feeling too cold and flat, choose a version of white with a warm base—think soft creamy white or something with yellow undertones.
East-facing rooms get the good early morning light. They are not overly warm, but rather clean and bright, giving your space a soft glow. This type of sunlight tends to flatter both cool and more neutral paint colours. So, if you are in the space more during the early part of the day, you can go with any shade of white. As the sun moves across the sky, east-facing rooms will still have lots of light, but also tend to have more shadow and grey light. To balance out this shadowy effect, a warmer white is best for these rooms during the afternoon and early evening to help warmer the room.
South-facing rooms get that good natural sunlight all day long and are fun to decorate mostly. This is the advantage to select the best shade of white based on your choice to feel best at any given point during the day. Even If you do not have so many windows, a warmer white can help bring some more light into the room.
If you have lots of windows, that means your space is naturally going to feel warm all day long. In that case, you need to go with a much cooler white, with a blue or grey tone to it. You can really push into the base colour here and go for a version that is just on the edge of not being white.
