Some may think that white walls are boring or sterile, but they can be quite the opposite. There are many reasons to choose white walls.

1. White Walls, Art & Architecture

Have you ever noticed that many art galleries have white walls? That’s because white walls are the perfect backdrop for artwork. They are not a distraction, which is ideal when displaying art. Likewise, if you have unique architectural details in your home, having white walls highlights those features.

2. Open Feeling

You may have heard that lighter colors give the illusion of more space. White walls are perfect for smaller spaces or spaces you want to feel more open. Try painting your walls white if you want your space to feel larger or more open.

3. White Allows Creativity with Color

Having white walls allows you more flexibility to use other colors not only via artwork, but with furnishings, window treatments, rugs, and other decorative items. When you have white walls, you can really experiment with color.

4. Neutral Appeal

White walls are a classic neutral that appeal to many. If you plan to sell your home, white walls are less likely to detract from the selling features of your home. It is amazing how many home buyers get distracted by paint colors. This is less of a problem with white walls.

5. Clean & Fresh

White is often synonymous with things that are clean and pure. White walls can give a very clean and fresh look to your home. This can be accomplished without being sterile. Remember, color can be applied using artwork, furnishings and decorative items.

6. Dress it Up or Down

White is such a classic and versatile color that you can use it in casual or more formal spaces. It truly is a color that can be used in any room of the home.

If you are considering white walls, think about the fun and creativity you can have by using white walls as the perfect backdrop or main attraction. by Frank LaMark
