All-White Color Schemes: Not Just for Home Interiors

White interiors have long been a favorite among design blogs. They exude cleanliness and elegance and make a room look more spacious. But if you’ve been itching to make your living spaces Pinterest-worthy with a dramatic change in your color scheme, there are a few things you should consider first. A News & Record article covers some of the basics of going all-white:

I’ve always wanted an all-white living room but just had to wait until the grandchildren had grown old enough! My question is about buying white carpeting. Would doing so be a mistake?

Not if you shop wisely and choose the right fiber and, ideally, the right protective finish.

Always fresh and soothing, white can be very right — and sophisticated — in any room in the house.

But it isn’t just inside your home that a splash of white can work wonders. Ever considered a white roof?

White roofs are also known in the industry as cool roofs because of their energy efficiency benefits. Indeed, installing a white or light-colored roof will do much more than just add a touch of elegance to your exteriors. White hasn’t always been a popular choice when it comes to roofs, but it’s gained a lot of attention lately because white roofs do help households save energy and money.

When you switch to a white roof, you can save as much as 20 percent of the energy you’d normally use to cool your home during hot, sunny weather. This is because the color reflects the sun’s rays, keeping your roof from absorbing the heat and thereby letting your cooling system work much more efficiently.
