Decorating with white – 10 of the best ideas

10 images

There are so many advantages to decorating a room in white. Not only will white create a clean and serene home that any potential buyer would be happy to snap up, but it’s also a great base for colour too.

Elegant and pristine, a white room is so inviting, thanks to an air of clean and effortless style. From hotel chic in the bedroom to Scandi minimalism in the living room, there are so many ways to make an all-white scheme work for you.

White decor is a great choice for any room in the house and you can really open up small spaces with bright white design. A busy area, like a hallway, can be tricky as white walls are likely to get scuffed. Add in grey panels on one side to stop unsightly marks from appearing, but still keep the light and airy feeling of this clean decorating scheme.
