Nothing can be more timeless and serene than an all-white interior. A common view is that rooms look bigger and cleaner with such a design scheme. But it's much more than that: white itself is such a 'flexible' color which, when combined with furniture or furnishings in other colors, brings about a positive vibe about the space no other colors can. It is, simply put, a symbol of (quiet) elegance and style.

A common complaint against a room designed in a white scheme is that it is difficult to maintain, especially with children living inside. But this can often be avoided, for example, by going for sofas with removable covers that can be washed clean, or by using paints which are washable. The use of easy-to-clean materials like homogeneous tiles, glossy spray paint or laminates will also be good in such instances. Another wise option is to incorporate glass in the design, which will not interfere with the color scheme given its transparency.

Nevertheless, an all-white interiors is very much a personal choice. The occupant must ask himself or herself if a white room is suitable for his or her own lifestyle before committing to it. No doubt white will be more difficult to upkeep than other colors, but if one keeps the aforementioned pointers to heart, an all-white design is not totally impossible.
