White wood floors are ideal for creating a neutral palette, and matches with basically anything. For some, it serves a functional and aesthetic purpose to make the room feel bigger and brighter. If you haven’t already considered white wood floors, here are some suggestions to inspire your design.
If you haven’t already noticed, many are taking on the simple white backdrop to both showcase their pops of color, or to bring a whole new level of sophistication to their homes. Prints, patterns, and bold colors certainly have their place, but the combination of white wood floors with white walls and glass or white décor. Unless the finish process is specifically designed to mask the natural variation of the wood, a nice white wash finish will allow variation and character to come through in the floor. This is a great option for those looking for a lived in, clean rustic look.
White floors are also a great option for those who want a more modern look. Think of the Scandinavian design whose design lends a room to look and feel bigger and brighter. Bring in live plants to soften the lines, and add interesting, artistic touches to give your home even more character.
In some cases white wood flooring gives a floor a more primitive appearance and pairs well with darker furniture or cabinets/countertops if used in the kitchen. Use rustic touches to pull the look together or wrought iron. The contrast is both beautiful and clean, and allows the imagination to make the room anything you want it to be!
One of our favorite things about white wood floors is how easy it is to maintain. White doesn’t show dust as easily as dark hardwood does, nor does it show nicks and scratches as easily as a dark hardwood would. You can have style and design even with a busy family!
