A white bedroom look can be a timeless choice and can work in any style of home. Alternatively, a white bedroom offers the perfect base to chop and change your bedroom accessories when you feel like it or to suit the changing seasons.
A white bedroom can be anything but plain. From adding accent colours, or pops of colour to adding texture or artwork or creating a Scandinavian inspired look, a white bedroom can be far from understated.
We have some top tips to styling a white bedroom to show how versatile white bedrooms ideas can be:
1. Add accent colours
For a calming colour scheme in the bedroom opt for blue or navy blue accessories. For a warming effect choose earthy colours.
A pop of bright bold colours though cushions and throws or even a splash of colour on a wall or blind/curtain will bring life and fun to your white bedroom.
The colour palette that you choose will depend on the mood you are wanting to achieve.
2. Add texture and pattern
Texture helps to make an all-white space cosy and inviting yet modern and sleek.
Try adding a neutral upholstered headboard, and for extra depth add neutral cushions and throws with textured patterns. High pile rugs or plush carpets will bring warmth to the room and textiles like suede and velvet for bedroom chairs or stools will soften the style.
3. Add striking pieces of furniture like a large headboard or light fitting
A neutral colour palette naturally brings the eye to focus on a striking piece of furniture or light fitting, so if you have a beautiful antique piece of bedroom furniture, show it off with a white or neutral bedroom style.
4. Add artwork
Similarly a striking piece of artwork will be the focal point against a white bedroom, chose accessories in accent colours from the artwork to complete the look.
5. Keep it all white to make a small room feel bigger
If you have a small bedroom, keeping the interior light or white can give the illusion that the room is bigger and brighter. Painting the walls and ceiling white or an ivory tone and keeping soft surfaces white/ivory will maximise the impact of light from the window and the light surfaces will help to bounce the light around the room.
6. Less is more
A simple colour palette with paired-back accessories will create a less is more approach for a laidback and polished look and feel. This ‘quiet’ approach to your bedroom style can often help to ‘quieten’ a busy mind to get it ready for sleep.
7. Create a gallery wall
A gallery wall in a white bedroom looks best when the frames that you choose are slim, simple frames with neutral tones or light woods. This creates a calming sophistication.
8. Go for monochrome for a contemporary feel
For a crisp contemporary finish opt for black or grey accessories against your white bedroom backdrop.
9. Go Scandi
A Scandinavian inspired look typically has clean lines, a neutral colour palette, natural wood elements. The end result of achieving a Sandi look offers a functional layout and less-is-more approach, which can be perfect for your sleep environment to cut down on the ‘noise’ a busy bedroom style can sometimes portray.
Add light woods like a modern and paired-back bedframe and furniture accessories. Accents of nature and texture through throws, cushions and green indoor plants will provide warmth to the style and soften the look.
