There is just something so heavenly about the all-in-white room. White is about simplicity, minimalism, and neutrality. And when it comes to decorating rooms with white it’s sorta like when it snow. Everything gets covered in a warm peaceful blanket of white.

An all-white room probably isn’t going to be the perfect option if you have small children and pets. However, there are a hundred performance fabrics, carpets, and paint options that are made for real-life. Now, it’s time to share with you five tips that will help you mix different shades of white like a pro.

1. Decide the Undertone Color

The first step is to decide whether you’re going to stick with warm white or cool white. Once you pick warm white, they will provide an undertone color of yellow, orange, and red, and cool whites have an undertone of blue, green, and purple. Additionally, warm whites are easier to blend with cream and beige, and white cool whites will mix best with shades of gray. Whichever undertone you choose, be sure to stick with it throughout your space.

2. Try to Mix White and Cream

If you’ve chosen warm whites for your home, then you’ve gotta mix white and cream! At first, I think they don’t go together, but they do! So, don’t be afraid to mix cream and white. Shades of cream will help warm up the whites in your space while keeping it light and bright. Further, it’ll also bring in some subtle variation.

3. Repeat the Same Color of White throughout the Space

The next step is to repeat the same tones of white throughout the space. You can start from the big pieces of furniture down to small decorative accents. It will help keep it looking cohesive. The important key to keeping it inviting is to make sure you use different textures. Thus, try to blend all types of leather, linens, cotton, velvets, and other fabrics.

4. Pick The Color Last

Fortunately, you can get any color in the paint. Nevertheless, when you’re shopping for furniture, you’ll notice that your upholstery options are somewhat limited, so pick those first! There will always be a paint color that’ll go with it because you can bring in a sample swatch of the color you want to match. Plus, they’ll custom-mix some for you.

5. Don’t Forget to Balance It Out

Going all-white sounds brilliant! Yet, there needs to be a little something that helps ground the space. That’s where a pop of black or wood comes into play. Consider using black and wood accents with small decorative stuff like decorative objects, lamps, hardware, picture frames, or even with the legs of your furniture.
