Why white works in bedrooms

One of the main benefits of using white wallpaper in a bedroom is that it creates a calm, tranquil environment. Other advantages include:

It’s durable and often relatively inexpensive

All-white walls generate a feeling of cohesion, making a bedroom look automatically more tidy

White wallpaper is incredibly versatile and can be styled in lots of different ways

The best white wallpapers for every space

Wondering how to decorate with white wallpapers? This all comes down to making the room feel warm and relaxing. Too much white can make a space feel cold and clinical, so it’s important to balance it with different shades throughout the rest of the room.

Some of the most popular types of white wallpaper are:

Plain white wallpaper

Patterned white wallpaper

Textured white wallpaper

Off-white wallpaper

Silver and white wallpaper

Patterned wallpapers, like white brick wallpaper, are perfect for adding interest to your bedroom, while plain white wallpapers provide a fresh, clean look.

Creating a warm look with white wallpapers

You can complement white wallpapers by bringing warmth and cosiness to the rest of the room. This can be achieved in several ways:

Create a monochrome look – add dark accents to an all-white bedroom for crisp, contemporary style. This can be done by incorporating accessories, such as lamps, cushions or a coffee table

Introduce brightly coloured accessories – choose warm colours, such as oranges, yellows and reds, for accessories and furnishings

Choose wallpaper with subtle detailing – patterned wallpaper can help make a bedroom feel instantly warmer. White wallpaper with sparkly silver detailing is one example of this

Use textures – textured wallpaper can add a little pizzazz to a white space. You could also accessorise the room with a textured rug for a beautiful contrast

A white bedroom can feel incredibly inviting, especially if you’re returning to it after a long, busy day. Create a peaceful atmosphere with this Superfresco Easy Louis Wallpaper, featuring a fine texture and a delicate pattern. It’s the ideal base for transforming your bedroom into a quiet retreat.

How to style

Styling this white wallpaper is easy. Continue the feeling of tranquillity by adding cushions, blankets and throws in soft colours. If you choose to accessorise with a single colour, the trick is to mix different shades and tones rather than relying on just one. For example, if you choose orange as your accent colour, mix hues such as peach, apricot and tangerine. This can help make your bedroom look well thought-out and organised.

To finish off the look, add some soft lighting by dotting a few candles around the room.

How to style

There are a couple of key ways to style this wallpaper and heighten the sense of luxury. The first way is to accessorise with light oak furniture. Subtle wood accents will contrast effortlessly against the white wallpaper and add an extra element of charm to your bedroom.

The second way is to create a monochromatic effect. You can do this by accessorising the rest of the room with small monochrome details, such as a black and white duvet or black pillows. The contrast of the colours will add instant warmth to your bedroom.
