How does a white floor affect the room?

White is that timeless colour that we always return to. White walls are the perfect base to begin with. As are floors. A white floor works every time – and in every room.

If the room does not have very much natural light, it can be brightened up by a floor with light colour tones. A white floor combined with light walls makes any room look larger.

"By choosing a white floor, you create a spacious and light atmosphere. A light floor gives an optical illusion of space in rooms with low ceilings," explains Oke Nollet, Design Director at Pergo.

The white floor also works regardless of style. You can choose the white oiled wood floor that works excellently in both the romantic summer cottage and the modern villa. You can lay completely white laminate floor tiles for an easy-care floor in your fresh studio. And treat yourself to a white wood floor despite children, dogs and mess – with durable long pine planks of laminate.

White is almost never completely white, but rather shades or tints towards other colours. If you had created a room with white without shading, it would have felt cold and almost unpleasant. Considering that white has a tint, it is important to make sure that the various whites you use match each other. For instance, is there a cold or warm tone in the white?

White floors open up to colour

"The white floor gives your room a fresh look that lets you get creative when it comes to interior design and decoration," says Oke Nollet.

With a white floor and white walls, there's room for an explosion of colour in the interior décor. It also provides an opportunity to create a room that provides calm and light with light tones.
