Design With White: What To Watch Out For
When designing with white, you will want to avoid creating a room that looks barren or cold. This can happen if too much white is used, without any contrasting elements. When you introduce other colors to your palette, you create harmony in the space. As you browse through white dining room design ideas, pay attention to the ways that harmony and balance are created.
Providing Contrast In Style-Specific Ways
The way that you will give contrast to a white-themed room depends on the style that you choose.
We have some fantastic visual examples of beach style that uses white very creatively, over in our beach dining room gallery. Beach themed dining areas should feel open and breezy, alluding to a light, relaxed sensation.
That “airy” quality comes from physical space as well as lots of white surface areas. The design should be uncluttered and straightforward. White or glass-based furniture tends to fade into the background as if it wasn’t even there. You may need a less contrasting color than you think. Just a touch of turquoise, beige, or brown will give the room the contrast it needs.
Contemporary style is similar to beach style in that it should feel light and open. It features natural elements and is causal and clean in appearance. A white theme is perfect for a contemporary space because white spaces appear clean. We found that many people like contemporary dining areas: this style was the most popular out of all 18 styles we analyzed.
If you want to provide contrast for a white room, and you are working with a Scandinavian style, you will probably do so sparingly. Black lampshades, beige table, and chairs, or a minimalist fireplace are great options for giving a touch of detail to liven the room. Get great white dining room design ideas with Scandinavian design from our galleries.
The traditional style is known for being comforting and inviting. Instead of letting the room feel cold or stark, introduce contrast that warms and softens the space. Chairs with thick cushions and soft carpeting can work well. Your contrasting elements can be more apparent when working with the traditional style.
When it comes to designing with white, you have a blank canvas to start with. Some styles commonly leave that canvas more “blank” than others. Depending on your style, you will contrast your white room in specific ways. This will help you to avoid a washed-out result. White dining room design ideas can give you great ideas for what kind of contrast to include.
