Decorating With White: The Ultimate Guide

A white interior is something that many of us want but are too afraid to implement; it’s elegant, stylish, and looks like a lot of work has gone into it! But we have a secret; white walls, floors, and even doors don’t need as much maintenance as you may think they do. Furthermore, they actually allow for some versatility with your decor.

We understand that having a completely white interior can seem somewhat intimidating, in which case you should look at the gorgeous textures of Materia tiles. But for those of you who want to try your hand at the white trend, here are our top tips!

Vintage home decor



If your main worry about incorporating so much white into your decor is the upkeep and cleaning that is needed, there’s no need to fret! Using floor tiles and wall tiles will make cleaning surfaces a lot quicker and simpler.

Adding things such as rugs, doormats and policies to make sure people don’t bring dirt into the house will also make sure that your home stays pristine.

Be Brave

Even though white isn’t an especially bold colour, it does require a little bit of bravery on your behalf to get the full benefits of this trend. Kitting your home out top to toe with white will keep light pouring around your home throughout every season; something that is particularly important at this time of year!

Using different materials, such as placing sheepskin rugs on top of tiles, will allow you to create different focal points using textures.

Choose One More Colour

Having such a minimal palette allows other colours to pop should you choose to add them to your home. To emphasise the effect of this, add a single colour in the same shade. For instance, choose green plants, mugs and bowls so that everything looks a lot crisper in your kitchen!

So there you have it, some of our top tips on how to make decorating with white a success in your home!
