White House Facades – Classical, Versatile And Always Beautiful

A while ago we discussed black house facades and we gave some inspiring examples for you to check out. Today we’re going to talk about white facades which are basically the opposite. White is a very bright color and it’s usually a shade chosen when you want to make a space feel larger or more open. But what about the facade of a house? Well it’s pretty much the same thing.

However, it can be a perfect option when you want the design to be the hero and not the color.

The ebst way to do is with a neutral color which doesn’t steal the attention and focus from the design.

But there are other reasons for painting a house white. For example, white is an excellent color for a beach house or for a residence with an overall airy and peaceful design. White is also a very versatile color which can be combined with absolutely any other shade so, if you want to use a specific accent shade, choosing white as the main color is a wise decision.
