White walls are not boring. Their simplicity makes them the cornerstone of minimalist and Scandinavian styles. It’s fresh, clean and classy.

So, just before you decide to repaint the white rooms in your house, take a minute and think about the possibilities first and why white walls are truly the best option.

Decorations pop brilliantly against white walls and rooms appear larger. Plus, colours are more attractive against the quiet, demure white so it really is a great canvas for you to unleash your creativity on.

Running out of ideas on how to make your white walls pop more? Here are five trendy ways to do it.

1. Fill them with photos and frames

Framed photographs, especially black and white ones, create a nice contrast against a white backdrop.

You can turn your wall into a creative gallery and hang up other artworks that blend in nicely. Printed rugs and blankets also add cosiness to the room.

2. Pair white with white

Otherwise, colourful appliances would be a great eye-candy to in an otherwise pristine setting.

3. Exposed brick walls are a welcome disruption
