Choose the Right Furniture for White Bedrooms – 20 Examples & Tips

While some people may find white to be the most boring hue, its popularity has grown significantly in recent years. While reading through our accounts, we have seen innumerable instances of white walls. Although many of these walls are decorated in a bohemian way with lots of light and greenery, white is not just for bohemian-styled spaces. White offers every possibility you could ever need while yet being bright and neutral.

Perhaps that explains why it works so well in bedrooms. White walls offer the ideal color base to build from in a room designed to help you unwind and revitalize. Look at these eight white bedrooms and the ideal bedroom furnishings after painting your bedroom walls.

1. White bedroom surrounded by curtains that hang from the ceiling

2. Traditional white-tone bedroom

In your typical home, the remaining walls are often painted a beige color. A white bedroom gives you something that feels a little lighter and fresher while yet allowing you to go with neutral colors.

One of my favorite pieces is the custom floral bench. Not only is the floral fabric gorgeous, but I love the gold shelf detail too. Perfect spot to tuck away some extra books, a tray, or even an extra blanket. I love how it adds convenience and is a statement piece in the room.

3. Focus on the rug

To ground the room and prevent your white bedroom from feeling lifeless, choose a neutral rug with a splash of color or an eye-catching geometric design. To avoid overpowering a space that is mostly neutral, stay away from rugs with hectic or vivid patterns, but a light color or two with some visual interest is a terrific way to bring a contrasting aspect to the space.

Green is the ‘chosen one’ for those who want to bring a hint of natural goodness inside your bedroom. Relaxing, elegant, bright, and refreshing, it is a pleasant hue that comes in diverse shades ranging from the brilliant jewel-toned emerald to more subtle and modest minty greens.
