Tengku Tengah Zaharah Mosque, popularly known as Floating Mosque, is one of the most famous edifices of Malaysia that aims to bridge the gap between classical and modern architecture. Among other things, the resplendent white façade rising from the Kuala Ibai lagoon creates a most stunning impact on the minds of those who come to visit this place.

Courtesy its spectacular prim white appearance, the 300-year old structure of Lake Palace creates a similar impression on those who come for sightseeing in Udaipur, India. For ages, the charm of white structures has enamoured us. It continues to do so in the exterior and interior of modern homes, and it's a trend that won't be going away any time soon. Let’s find out how you can introduce a stunning white design scheme into your home.

White flooring

White flooring can give a luxurious feel to the interior. You can use polished marble, porcelain or ceramic tiles to decorate the flooring of your home. Natural marble is extremely durable and has veins, which give an added charm to any space. On the other hand, porcelain and ceramic tiles are relatively cheap and easier to clean.

White sofa

The introduction of warm white tones can make your home feel more inviting. Consider bringing home a white sofa or daybed, or upholster an existing one with white fabric. Do not forget to perk up the space with cushions in brighter hues.

Spotless white kitchen

Perhaps this is the most popular way of introducing white in our homes. A spotless white kitchen would be the envy of all your friends! From white walls to flooring, cabinets to worktops, you can use white in a plethora of ways. To avoid monotony, try to bring a subtle change in texture through the use of tiles, wood, and padded wall panels.

White dining chairs and table

To match up with your spotless white kitchen, why not consider purchasing a set of white dining chairs and a matching table? 

Classic wooden chairs, upholstered in lavish white fabric, look amazing when set around a marble-top dining table. Alternatively, you can consider investing in a set of white moulded chairs and combine it with a modern white dining table for futuristic chic.

White walls

This is one of the easiest ways of introducing white in your home. A combination of interesting white wall décor, mid century modern furniture and contemporary rugs stylised the interior of this living room planned by Brown + Brown Architects, without looking overdone. 

White walls really do suit any design scheme – from rustic to modern to boho, you can't go wrong with a white base.

Bookcases and display cabinets

Trying to give your room an uncluttered and expansive feel? Why not consider coating your existing bookshelves and cabinets in a glowing white tone? It looks neat, polished, and is easy to main. Use glossy or satin finish for the exterior and matte for the interior to add a subtle texture change-up, which will increase the glamour of your living room or study.

White in the bedroom

Interdesign Interiores used the deep blue sea itself to style this magical white bedroom. If your bedroom has stunning views of the surrounding land or seascape, take full advantage and allow it to work its magic on the interiors. 

Use the calming effect of white and give your bedroom an enchanting makeover. You can pair up white walls with flooring, white headboard with a cot or white bed furnishings with the curtains.

Lighting fixtures

Do not forget your lighting fixtures – they too can give your room a pristine white touch. Use luxurious white fabric to upholster your bedside lamps or table lamps you use in your home office.

Also, do not forget the power of humble white candles. They can be used to weave magic in a bedroom, dining area, spa style bathroom or terrace.

White kid’s room

Kid’s rooms too can have an all white look. But make sure you use materials that are easy to clean and maintain. Inject some colour by investing in bright rugs, decorative pieces, toys and furnishings.

White carpet or area rug

If you only want to make a minor change and give your rooms a lustrous white appearance, then go for wall to wall carpeting. You can also consider spreading a large monochrome area rug in the space. Needless to say, in either case the shade should be a subtle shade of off-white.

White bathroom

Most of our houses use at a least a minimal amount of white in this space. Why not consider having more white in your bathroom? If it is a small one, this colour scheme will also help to brighten up its interior.

A hallway all in white – wouldn’t it be great to welcome your guests into a space like this? Add some variety by showcasing potted plants, decorative pieces, framed paintings, mirrors and photographs.

White façade

This is one of the possibilities that you can explore at any point of time. Give the façade of your home a gleaming white makeover. An all-white exterior works for a modern town house as well as a small cottage set in an idyllic location. Moreover, this technique never fails to give your home a distinctive look.

For fascinating décor, you can choose any one or all of these options. Always remember to match it up with the other elements of a room and prepare to live in an adorably white home.
