Decorating your bedroom with white bedroom furniture has so many benefits that I don’t see why anyone wouldn’t, at the least consider, using this furniture style in their home.
Firstly, it’s light reflecting properties will cause all the light entering the room to bounce off its surfaces and be dispersed throughout the room, instantly lifting your bedroom.
We all associate white with peace and tranquillity, enabling white bedroom furniture to transform your bedroom into that restful retreat. Most furniture styles, woods or colours look harsh and cold without soft furnishings and accessories to introduce warmth into the room but white bedroom furniture has a soft, serene feel to it that requires fewer accessories to achieve that ambience.
It has been proven that white is pleasing to look at, creates a greater sense of well being, initiating a restful state of mind and even encouraging sleep. Most of us wouldn’t consider how our choice of bedroom furniture will affect our state of mind and ability to sleep.
White furniture is not imposing like wooden, dark furniture and modern furniture can be. You can incorporate larger pieces of white furniture into your bedroom without cluttering the room and making it appear cramped.
White bedroom furniture, in conjunction with white or light shades on the wall, look clean, fresh and bright, even when the weather is grey and dismal, and sunlight is scarce.
White bedroom furniture will easily complement any colour scheme and allow you to choose any wall colour, floor colour and accessories so you can change the colours and theme of your bedroom whenever you feel like.
You can achieve many different looks with white bedroom furniture such as contemporary, vintage, French-style, shabby chic, romantic, modern, country farmhouse; your options are vast.
Both modern and contemporary bedrooms should feature large windows, single pane and floor to ceiling windows, if possible. Contemporary bedrooms should feature bold or neutral walls, low-lying bed designs and furniture with square lines. Modern bedrooms often feature white or light walls with white or grey accessories and high gloss paint, floors and furniture.
Vibrant colours are also used to create a modern bedroom to offset white walls, furniture and floors. I think that vintage and romantic rooms are closely intertwined and have characteristic light coloured walls, white French-style or shabby chic furniture, and feature vintage items acquired from flea-markets and the like. Shabby chic style is accomplished by combining different styles and colours of furniture that oddly complement each other.
White bedroom furniture looks striking against light blue and light green furniture pieces that have an undercoat of white and have been lightly sanded and distressed to look ‘shabby’.
I always think French farmhouse when I think of shabby chic, but that is my personal take on the style, and everyone will have their own ideas of what this style represents. White furniture, distressed white floorboards and floral or check printed fabrics and curtains will effortlessly portray the country farmhouse feel.
