We have seen a lot of trends come and go in the painting world, but one topic that tends to always come up is white walls. There are some people that like a minimalist style and prefer all white walls. Other people feel white looks cleaner and makes a small room appear larger. White walls tend to be one of those topics that cause couples to disagree and can often lead to angry discussions with friends about white walls! Whether you want to call is modern minimalism, or a rebellion against people trying to make you paint your walls a variety of colors, the reasons to love white are astounding.
Lets start at the beginning. We can look back at thousands of years of history and see white walls in just about every culture. Modern decor is often taking inspiration from the past and trying to spruce it up to look new. Some people like bright, colorful pictures brilliantly hung on white walls. Quirky patterns like retro prints and plaids are also used to bring out some inspiration from an otherwise boring walls.
White has often been thought of as a cheap way to paint a home. You can literally pick up a gallon of white paint from the grocery store for less than $19. However, the quality is debatable. White tends to be a color that indicates the economy is suffering and people are tightening their finances. At least, that is what the common misconception states. The truth lies with each person, some people just simple like white the same way others like blue or pink!
Thanks to Pinterest, a lot of homeowners are feeling the pressure to have their living rooms “photo shoot ready”, so we are seeing a trend in white walls offset with colorful furniture. A lot of people are trying white walls to strip their homes back down to the basics. White walls offset with wood flooring can have a compelling impact.
