White floor in the design of rooms

Do you think that white floors are impractical? Really. Caring for light surfaces is more difficult than for dark ones, besides, they quickly become worthless. Can a sane person dare to do this? But as you know, common sense is the worst enemy of creativity! A white floor in the interior of the apartment opens up an unlimited space for the birth of creative ideas! So do not be afraid and do it for your own pleasure.

The white floor is good because it:

  • is relevant for absolutely any interiors. The main thing is to choose the finishing materials;
  • can act as an effective accent or, on the contrary, serve as a background for darker or more vivid compositions;
  • multifaceted - the palette of the white contains cold and warm shades, which allows you to successfully integrate them into any color selection;
  • calmingly affects the psyche, gives peace and peace;
  • perfectly harmonizes with gentle, bright and deep shades. Supports the charm of the first, "cool" the ardor of the second and refresh the third;
  • Masking dust, allowing the hosts to meet the guests fully armed without prior preparation.

The downside of the coin is that by perfectly concealing the dust, the white floor shamelessly demonstrates the slightest dirt and chips. Any hair, not to mention stains, scratches and scales, fallen to the surface is clearly visible.

The main types of materials for finishing the floor:

  • wood - a wooden covering or a parquet keep a heat and give sensation of a cosiness. They cause a desire to play on the floor with children, walk barefoot. Beneficial looks in the interior of the board of bleached oak, ash. The only disadvantage of such a coating is that the wooden composites eventually crack up and begin to creak. But if you maintain in the apartment a certain humidity can be avoided. Of course, provided that the technology of preliminary shrinkage of wood has not been violated;
  • tiles - practical, durable, waterproof material. It is represented by various sizes, shapes, textures and colors. Collections are completed with monophonic components, specimens with a pattern, decorative slats for framing the composition or delineating individual sections of the cover. Glossy options add to the room chic, gloss. They push the space. Matt, on the other hand, fills the room with comfort. The cold surface is a weighty argument in favor of abandoning tiles in the nursery and bedroom. However, even this problem is solved by installing a warm floor;
  • porcelain stoneware - acquires special strength in the production process. Fits like a tile, but in a seamless way. As a result, a smooth matte or glossy surface is formed-one-toned or with a divorce. Ceramic granite successfully simulates artificial marble, allowing you to save money;

White perfectly interacts with all the representatives of the color circle, shades of gray and black.

We present the most popular combinations:

  • with black - classicmix. Suitable for a spacious hall, and for a small bathroom. If such a combination seems too fresh, add peppercorn as an additional color. A luxurious red, for example, will ideally fit into a black and white company;
  • with orange or yellow - the brightness of the "sunny" shades depends on the general mood of the room. Blurred tones will add to it elegance, rich - boiling joyous delight;
  • with purple - an excellent option for creative natures. Violet does not let the spark of creativity go on casting new ideas all the time. He unrecognizably changes the white interiors. Everything in them seems mysterious and unusual;

In the bedroom

The white color on the floor acts soothingly. Therefore, in the bedroom it will be very useful. It will make the room an ideal place for rest and solitude. The color can be supported by white decoration of walls and furniture. But do not decide the whole room in a monochrome key. Sterile whiteness is associated with the hospital ward. "Color" the interior with pastel textiles and accessories, and the room will turn into a cozy nest.

In the kitchen

White flooring in the kitchen should be waterproof. During the preparation and wash dishes, the floor will inevitably be attacked by water and greasy splashes. Such a coating, like tiles, porcelain tiles, linoleum, not only will not get wet from random drops, but will stand under the onslaught of cleaning agents and hard wool. And for the light-colored sex it is more than actual. The shade can be supported by a white apron in the work area or furniture facades. If the kitchen unit has legs, use only a hard cover. On linoleum and vinyl tiles there may be traces that will later turn into cracks.

Bathroom and a bathroom

In small rooms, the issue of the need for visual expansion of space is particularly acute. That is why so often for the bathroom and toilet is chosen white finish. And sex in this sense is no exception. In these rooms, as nowhere else, the sense of purity and freshness is important. The snow-white floor gives full confidence in the safety of the hygienic procedures. The best choice for a bathroom will be tile or granite. The advantage of the latter is that it does not have a chamfer. Therefore, when it is laid, seams are not formed, which are so difficult to clean. Persistence of ceramic granite to abrasive components is another plus of the material. The disadvantage is the excessive smoothness of the surface. To protect yourself choose a tile with a lowered slip index - matte, relief.
