White has been a major theme in home design this year. It all started when Benjamin Moore chose white to be its 2016 Color of Year. The monochromatic Scandinavian design trends that dominated home blogs in 2016 were followed by light and monochromatic Scandinavian designs. Freshome was no different. We’ve covered the exteriors of black homes, so let’s flip the switch to see how a white-washed home looks. Below are 25 of our favourite white homes. These homes will brighten your day, whether you are looking for inspiration or entertainment.
Are you thinking of a bright, new paint job for your home? Before you start painting, take a look at these tips.
White is cool!
It’s fashionable, yes, but it’s also more comfortable in terms of temperature. You won’t be able to get heat from the sun because it isn’t attracted to white. This is great news for desert dwellers who don’t like living in an oven. But it’s worth considering if you live in colder climates and want to reduce heating costs. Insulation is also a matter of choice in construction materials and energy-efficient windows.
Shade is important!
White is not a universal color. White can be as vibrant or as muted as any other color. White can come in as many hues and intensities as any other color. Are you unsure where to start your search for the perfect color? Gardenista has a wide range of white paint colors.
Color can and should be added to any other area.
Your home doesn’t have to be primarily white. But that doesn’t mean you can’t add color to your curb appeal. Brightening up your front door can speak volumes about your true colors. Non-white trim can also make a home stand out. It’s easier to add color and seasonal touches like spring flowers or winter wreaths to a white home.
Priming is an essential step, but many of us can admit that we have shirked this step in the past without any real consequences. You should make sure your home is covered when you paint it white. Many paints come with both a primer and paint. However, it’s a good idea to check with your local paint shop to ensure you get the correct stuff. It’s not worth spending a lot of money on a new look only to find your old color showing through.
