When I moved into a new home a few years ago, the only thing I thought I didn’t like about it was that it had all white woodwork. I had grown up believing that wood needs to look like wood, but I soon discovered that I liked the white look very much. It was clean and bright-looking, and the whole house just seemed larger because there weren’t dark bands and doors to break up the expanses. In the same manner, white bedroom furniture can truly lighten up any room and make it sparkle. When the sun shines in, white décor is very eye-catching, and on a gray, dismal day, it truly works wonders. White furniture is available in many styles to enhance the look of your home.
Some experts believe that white bedroom furniture can help you sleep better by providing a more serene environment, and it has long been acknowledged that color can made a profound difference in a person’s mood. It’s possible that if you have difficulty sleeping, a change in room color and furniture could make a real difference. True, you can’t see the colors in the dark, but you can still picture them in your mind to give you a more restful feeling.
White furniture in any room is very modern-looking, however a bedroom does especially provide the perfect showcase for white furnishings. You can use a darker color on the walls and floor when utilizing white beds and chests, because they will help lighten up the room and set off the dark colors beautifully.
If buying all new furniture won’t fit into your budget, you can achieve the same effect by painting your existing dressers, night tables, headboards, and the like. By sanding down old items, priming and painting them, and finishing with a water-based polyurethane coating, you can make the same old furniture look and feel like new.
We all need a change from time to time, and fitting your bedroom out with new, white bedroom furniture can make a great style statement. Don’t be afraid to try white just because your mother always told you that wood grains were better. White is modern and stylish, and it fits well into almost any color scheme.
