How to Decorate a Room in White

When one thinks of decorating a room, they think of different shades of colors from blues to pinks to greens etc. there are not many people who would give a thought to the color white, but the calmness and the magic that the color white has is unmatched and no other color can create the same effect ever. White is a color that can give a new dimension to any space as the color itself illuminates light and it can give a different touch to any other color also.

The color white is pure and elegant, and the look that one can create when they decorate a room in white is amazing and something which is difficult to create with any other color. White is a universal color and if one plans the room well and keep some basic things in mind; they will be able to create a beautiful and amazing room. too much white can make the room look mournful but if done carefully, it will look elegant.

When one wants to decorate a room in white the first and the foremost thing that one needs to do is choose a theme for the room. one can adopt a European approach or they can go for a relaxed theme which is down to earth. The theme is what will help one choose the colors of the room. The base color of the furniture that one chooses for the room should be basic and something that completely blends with the white color. The sofas can have a brown color base if one wants the earthy look or a neutral base color if the choice is to create a European look.

One can add different kinds of furniture like coffee table and cabinets in the room using shades which will blend well with the theme and the color white.  The major furniture should always have the same shade of base color so that the room does not look disorganized. One can use cushions and pillows with a complementary shade or the base color. It is always good to add plants and natural life to the room when one is decorating the room in white. One needs to be careful of the choices, as the wrong choice that one makes can destroy the elegant and calm look that they intend to create using the color white.
