Picking suitable colors is an important part of the process of decoration. People usually pick a dominant color when they are decorating their houses. However, different colors have different effects and a variety of cons and pros. This applies to all colors especially white. There are few things you need to know if you are planning on choosing white colors as dominant colors for your house’s décor, and they are:
1- White is a bright color, so stains will stick out like a sore thump. If you are planning to paint your walls in white or choosing white furniture, remember that it will stain easily. So, do not pick white if you are planning to spend a lot of time and activity in “white” rooms.
2- White makes flaws clearer. If your walls have cracks or flaws, make sure you fix them before painting them in white. White makes flaws more apparent. To top it off, some people use glossy finishing with white paint. So, not only will flaws be apparent, they will be literally “shiny” as well.
3- Too much white makes your rooms barren. If you are planning to use white in your rooms, you have to know how much “white” is too much. Too much white sets off a repulsive aura and makes spaces look depressing. You have to know how to balance white with other colors.
4- White is neither children-friendly nor pet-friendly. Children tend to experiment and try by touching things. So are pets. Therefore, white should be out of your prominent colors selection. Choosing white furniture and painting the walls in white when you have little kids means that they will be dirty all the time.
White is a great neutral color that is easy to match with other colors. However, like any other color it has its flaws that you should be careful about when using it for decorating your house.
