Create instant brightness with white painted furniture
Because it reflects light so well, incorporating painted white furniture in your bedroom will instantly make your space seem more open and spacious. It’s also a great choice if you’re looking to invest in timeless bedroom furniture that won’t date in years to come; white pairs well with virtually any colour, so you can easily switch up the surrounding décor when you fancy a change.
The Shaker white furniture range includes all the main pieces of furniture you need for your bedroom, including white beds, dressers and wardrobes. Set on narrow raised legs, the airy gap created beneath will lend a feeling of openness and is a great way to maximise on space.
To really make white furniture stand out, give it a dark backdrop. Paint the wall(s) behind in a dark colour – this will bring depth, transforming key pieces of furniture into eye-catching focal points. You could also try painting your walls two different colours using the colour blocking technique (using solid, contrasting colours next to each other) for added definition.
Paint the walls white for a Scandi-inspired look
White walls will create a clean and serene feeling and are guaranteed to make any bedroom look good – no matter what shape or size. Less is more when adopting this kind of theme, keep clutter to a minimum and dot a few accenting pieces around the room.
Invest in a white dressing table
A white dressing table will add the wow factor to your room. It’s the perfect place to get ready for the day, adding a dash of luxury to your morning routine. Calm, and with everything to hand – what a way to start the morning, or get ready for an evening out.
Incorporate a white mirror
A white mirror in a white bedroom is the perfect way to make the room feel bigger. Not only does the mirror reflect light but the white frame will help illuminate the space as well. To maximise the effect, place it near the window to reflect natural light and scenery from outside.
Add a white storage ottoman at the end of your bed
There’s something particularly calming about a clean, white bedroom. Tame clutter and keep your bedroom tidy by using smart storage such as a white ottoman at the end of your bed. It will provide the perfect place for spare blankets, cushions, or nightwear.
Choose colourful accessories
A white bedroom gives you the freedom to be adventurous with your accessories. Choose a vibrant theme in your quilt cover and curtains, bringing the same colour into cushions and a blanket. It doesn’t have to be too matchy-matchy, just a broad sweep of colour to pop against the white furniture.
