The meaning behind whitewashed walls is a little obscure yet with a well-defined sense. Usually, wood-paneled walls or basically any other type of wall can be treated with white wash which is a whiting mixture. This gives the walls a fresh and clean look which is also intentionally superficial. Next, find out how whitewashed walls can help you achieve an inviting and peaceful décor for your home.
Probably the best place where you can use this wall treatment is the bedroom. The light and simple look suits the room perfectly and allows it to remain warm and cozy even with a color palette based on white.
Whitewashed walls are extremely versatile and can transform any part of the house into a peaceful spot. For example, here the accent walls match the floor in terms of color and complement the overall décor wonderfully.
Traditional or rustic homes make it easy to incorporate whitewashed walls in their interior decors. It’s a nice and simple way of making a space feel brighter while maintaining its charm.

The whole point of choosing to whitewash walls is creating a casual background and retaining some of the original color on the walls. A perfect opportunity to give a space a cozy feel, like this colorful dining area for example.
It’s important to think things through before opting for this type of wall treatment. Think of all the other colors you’re going to use in the room. Light and neutral shades are a nice match but it’s also nice to add a few bold accents as well.
