Using a white floor to add personality to a room

It’s no surprise that white flooring is becoming increasingly popular. Not only do they make a room look more spacious and bright, they’re also the ideal breeding ground for quirky design experiments. Discover how to make a white floor work in your interior.

From modern minimalist to cosy coastal

White floors can handle any style, ranging from modern to traditional. Do you like to keep things minimalist simple? Choose a white floor with a glossy finish and add some eye-catching artwork or pieces of furniture to your room. Prefer a tranquil beach-like look? Then whitewashed wood is perfect for you!

But no matter the style, be sure to apply some colourful accents. That way, you’ll avoid a clinical look. Blue and green, for instance, will add a peaceful, yet vibrant touch.

Maple wood: designers’ crème de la crème

Looking for something that little bit extra? Then take a look at maple wood. It’s known for its strength and durability, but also remains a firm favourite among professional decorators. Its creamy effect adds softness to any interior. Moreover, when combined with other light tints, maple can really open up a room. Quick-Step’s maple laminate flooring, for instance, creates an airy ambiance, allowing other interior elements to take centre stage.

What about cleaning?

On a practical note: consider your cleaning commitment carefully before choosing your white floor. A textured floor finish, for instance, hides dirt, mud and dust to a certain extent. Don’t want to sweep it too often? Then avoid a glossy finish to your white floor.
