Effortlessly elegant, sophisticated, and modern all at once—white definitely deserves more design credit. It is the best choice when you want to make a room look bright and airy while being versatile enough to match with the rest of the colors on the spectrum. If you still aren't convinced that you should consider working with minimalist walls, we've listed down a few reasons that might change your mind: 

1. It makes spaces look and feel bigger.

If you're looking for the easiest way to open up your home, you can count on crisp white paint to do just that. Since non-hues attract light, it can create the illusion that your room is bright which simply makes for a more inviting space. 

 2. It is the perfect canvas for any type of decor.

Whether you like Scandinavian influences, Shabby chic details, or you simply enjoy changing the look of your home regularly, white can be a great canvas to start with. This way, redecorating can be as easy as changing a few throws or colorful pillows! 

3. It’s a piece of cake to maintain.

While it may seem like it's the easiest home improvement project, painting (or repainting) can be very tedious. If you leave your walls snow white, you don't have to go through the trouble of going over all the panels—all it needs is a little touch-up every few years and you're good to go. 

 4. It never goes out of style.

White is a standard staple in design for a reason—it's impossible to get tired of its crisp appearance and calming appeal. Don't be surprised if you see it in every year's list of hot trends. 

5. It optimizes natural light in a room.

Sunlight is welcome in any home. White paint can boost the amount of light that enters the room while keeping it cool and maaliwalas

6. It allows you to use color anywhere you like.

Even with white walls, you don't have to forego your love for color. Bring the entire rainbow into your home through the furniture, accessories, drapes, and even area rugs. Remember, you are allowed more creativity in spaces where you have a blank base.

7. Ironically, it is the perfect pop of color.

Contrary to popular belief, white is the perfect choice if you want to break up busy wall treatments, a combination of patterns, or even clashing shades of paint in a room.
