White Flooring For Your Home

They’re bright and airy, relaxed yet refined. They remind us of Mediterranean vacations and chic Scandinavian design. Yes, white floors are gorgeous — but are they right for your home?

White floors work with a variety of styles and create a blank canvas to allow your furnishings to shine. Whether you’re into shabby-chic, farmhouse, or even a modern industrial style — if this is what you were thinking of, white flooring can be the answer!

Wood is one of the most popular materials when it comes to an all-white flooring look, and it’s a relatively easy aesthetic to achieve if you have existing hardwoods in your home. Simply sand the floorboards and then paint them with a high-quality white paint and sealant. Additionally, if you have light colored floors, like white oak or ash, it is possible to bleach the bare boards and then add a whitewash stain.

You might be thinking — how will I keep my white floors clean? Like any light colored floor, white floors are difficult to keep looking pristine. However, there are ways to work around that. Opting for a white look that utilizes texture or pattern will keep you from noticing every fleck of dirt, and area rugs can work wonders in high-traffic areas. Remember, it’s just as difficult to keep light floors clean, as it is to keep extremely dark floors clean. 

If you’re not up for DIY sanding and painting, white wood flooring can also be achieved by installing engineered hardwood that has been pre-finished with white stain or paint. This can help take the guesswork out of what the finished product might look like.
