How to refresh your space with white living room furniture
There are so many benefits to investing in white painted furniture and soft white furnishings like sofas. Fresh, clean and timeless, white furniture provides the perfect blank canvas, giving you the flexibility to experiment as much as you’d like with the surrounding decor. It also reflects the light, making it a great choice for smaller or darker living rooms.
Whether you want to inject a botanical feel or embrace a coastal look, we share our expert tips on how to create a refreshing living room using white furniture and décor.
A white TV unit could form part of a dramatic monochrome look, contrasting with a black TV. The Hove range includes a stylish white TV unit along with other matching items for your living room and is a great way to achieve a coordinated look. Choose more of the Hove range – a white coffee table, perhaps – and maybe a dark grey sofa or soft furnishings. Our Evie sofa, or Cooper would fit the bill.
Incorporate a white bookcase to keep your space clean and serene
White living rooms are loved for being clean and serene escapes. Incorporate a white bookcase to keep your possessions neat and tidy and clutter to a minimum. For a decorative look, scatter light-coloured ornaments in-between stacked books. Place a leafy plant on top of the bookcase for a refreshing, botanical feel.
Introduce a white mirror to bounce light around the room
A white mirror will help to maximise on light, instantly opening your space and making it feel bigger. Try placing the mirror above a statement piece of furniture such as a sideboard or furniture to give it focus.
Choose coastal accessories
Coastal accessories perfectly complement a white living room. Get the look by incorporating white furniture, white painted walls and then pick nautical soft furnishings such as blue and white striped cushions and curtains. Introduce natural, beach-like textures to offset the white. This console table from the Shaker range incorporates handy wicker baskets – ideal for evoking a rustic seaside feel.
Snuggle up on a white sofa
As the flagship living room piece and the main place to entertain and relax, it’s important to choose a sofa that not only looks stylish but feels cosy too.
A plush white leather sofa, like the Devon 2 seater recliner, will add instant softness, encouraging you to unwind and put your feet up. Inject some personality by decorating it with colourful cushions – bold geometric fabrics will create an impactful statement by adding a lively rhythmic quality.
When used right, a table lamp can bring texture, brightness and warmth to your living space. Our white Athens lamp features intricate geometric detailing and the white shade allows maximum light to shine through. Place on a sideboard for a decorative touch or stand it on a side table and use as a handy reading lamp.
By choosing white furniture and decor, you can create a scheme that looks clean, bright, and spacious. Explore more of our expert tips on decorating with white or check out our blog for more inspiration.
